Hooked on a Feeling

Music by Mark James

Originally Performed by B. J. Thomas

Hooked on a Feeling” is a 1968 pop song written by Mark James and originally performed by B. J. Thomas. Thomas's version featured the sound of the electric sitar, and reached number five in 1969 on the Billboard Hot 100 It has been recorded by many other artists, including Blue Swede, whose version reached number one in the United States in 1974. The Blue Swede version made singer Björn Skifs' "Ooga-Chaka-Ooga-Ooga" intro well known (and famous in Sweden at the time), although it had been used originally by British musician Jonathan King in his 1971 version of the song

In 1974, the Swedish pop group Blue Swede did a cover version, which included the "ooga chaka" introduction from Jonathan King's 1971 cover. Their arrangement was inspired by a bootleg recording of Do You Like Worms? from the unfinished album Smile by the Beach Boys.[8] The Blue Swede version of the song also tweaked the lyrics to avoid a drug reference. This version reached number one in the United States. Billboard ranked it as the No. 20 song for 1974.
