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.

Various Arrangers : Barbershop Pop Classics

Fun arrangements of some classic pop hits that work perfectly in the barbershop style. "Stand By Me" - Part of the charm and signature of the song is the bass riff, which continues throughout and keeps strict tempo from beginning to end. The Turtles' #1 hit "Happy Together" from 1967 arranged in close harmony will showcase your group at their best! The 1963 pop hit "In My Room" by the Beach Boys translates beautifully into close harmony style! Great for encouraging guys to sing.

B Vocal : Seis Voces... Nada Mas? : 1 CD

B Vocal : Seis Voces... Nada Mas?    Out of Print

We just had the rare pleasure of experiencing b vocal, Spain's fast-rising all male a cappella sextet, winner of the New York City 2010 Harmony Sweepstakes Regional, live on stage at the National Finals in San Rafael. Their wild, funny set, culminating in a hilarious a cappella rendition of "The Barber of Seville" that would make Ward Swingle proud, earned them the most lopsided ballot count for Audience Favorite we can remember. There is so much vocal talent here, and so much natural humor that recalls physical comedians such as Charlie Chaplin and the Marx Brothers, b vocal have become big stars in Spain and Europe, and are well on their way in the U.S. There are 15 songs here, a healthy mix of songs in English, such as The Back Street Boys' "I Want It That Way," The Corrs' "What Can I Do," B.J. Thomas's "Hooked on a Feeling," live renditions of Elton John's anthem "Your Song" and Wet Wet Wet's "Love is All Around" and Extreme's "More Than Words;" and in Spanish, such as Juanes' "A Dios Le Pido," the fairly silly "Mucho Mejor" by Los Rodriguez, Marc Anthony's "Te Tengo Aqui" and Mana's "Clavado en un Bar." B vocal was clearly having big fun on stage at the Finals, and just as clearly having a great time in the studio recording "Seis voces." We love this group, and are pretty sure you will enjoy "Seis voces!"

Songlist: A Dios Le Pido, Color Esperanza, Te Tengo Aqui, Mediterraneo, I Want It That Way, Carolina, What Can I Do, Mucho Mejor, Sabor de Amor, Clavado en un Bar, Hooked On a Feeling, Your Song, Si Tu me Dices Ven, Love Is All Around, More Than Words

Sirens : PreMusical Syndrome    onsale

Not to be confused with the Collegiate ensemble USC Sirens, The Sirens were formed in New York City in the Fall of 2000, and are a Contemporary a cappella all-woman septet. "PreMusical Syndrome" is their debut CD, and it's an excellent one. 8 all-a cappella cover tunes, beginning with George Michael's "Freedom 90," Lenny Kravitz' "Fly Away," Radiohead's "High and Dry" and Amanda Marshall's "Sunday Morning After." Other winners are U2's "Pride," Blue Swede's "Hooked on a Feeling" and a very nice "TV Medley" that pushes a bunch of our nostalgia buttons. The Sirens have a fresh, clean, fun sound, we enjoyed every of "Syndrome" and we're looking forward to hearing more.

Toxic Audio : Toxic Audio : 1 CD

Toxic Audio : Toxic Audio

The release of this CD has been eagerly awaited - fans of the group's live performances have been clamoring for it! This mixed quintet, based in Florida, has all kinds of chops, as singers as well as entertainers. They have a contemporary sound, including vocal percussion, but a jazzy influence can be detected, such as on the track "Loving You," (no surprise, as the song was arranged by Yumiko Matsuoka). Indeed, it is this facility that fleshes out the arrangements and gives the finished product substance. "Hooked On A Feeling" chugs along with its "ooga chaka" pulse - an example where humor also works musically. "My Cherie Amour" shows once again the tightness of the "rhythm section," "Big Yellow Taxi," arranged by the group, proves their facility in this area. Several original songs show another facet of the group's talent.

Songlist: A Toxic Tribute To Pat And Debby Boone, Spooky, Can't Win, Loving You, Hooked On A Feeling, Ordinary Life, Take A Chance On Me/ Dancing Queen, My Cherie Amour, Big Yellow Taxi, Outta My Mind, Say Goodbye, The Super-Phat Low-Cal Disney Rap, A Dream Is A Wish

UR2Kam : A Cappella : 1 CD

UR2Kam : A Cappella

UR2KAM is Simo Breede, baritone, his brother Tanel Breede, bass, Markus Leppoja, 1st tenor, and Mart Loite, 2nd tenor, and they are young, good-looking barbershop-doo-woppers from Estonia (please no "Estonia when you're driving in your car" jokes!). The liner notes are in Estonian, so we don't know what UR2KAM means, only that the group does all their own very mellow arrangements. There are a number of western pop covers here, sung in cutely-accented English; among our favorites: Jimmy Buffett's "Kokomo," "Sloop John B," "Sealed With A Kiss," "Hooked On A Feeling," "Blue Moon," "Ave Maria," and "Amazing Grace"-which highlights Tanel's smooth, powerful bass. Not in English, but spirited and entertaining: "Paula, sul on poisipea," "Labi saju," Jahikoera armuulg," and "Rajalaul." The CD is fresh and sweet-the guys have a lot of talent, and this is an excellent first effort for them!

Songlist: Intro, K-K-K-Katy, Kokomo, Blue Moon, My Special Prayer, Sealed With A Kiss, Hooked on a Feeling, Paula, sul on poisipea, Ave Maria, Labi saju, Sloop John B, Amazing Grace, Jahikoera armuulg, Rahalaul

Vocal Six : Vocal Six : 1 CD

Vocal Six : Vocal Six

First CD by Swedish male sextet, Vocal Six, released in 1992. Though broadly classified as contemporary, in actuality their sound, and selection of material, leans heavily towards jazz. Compact close harmony, brilliant swipes and scat breaks characterize their style, as exemplified by "Music, Music, Music," "My Baby Just Cares For Me" and a deliciously understated arrangement of "I Left My Heart In San Francisco." A poignant, piano-accompanied "My Funny Valentine," wrings out every teardrop, as does the haunting Sting cover, "Sister Moon." Vocal Six plays the dance card with the "Bad/Thriller" medley and the group's own "Barberhouse Acid Rap," where they loosen their collars and grunt, James Brown style.

Songlist: Wake Up!, Lady Madonna, Tango, Bad/ Thriller, Sister Moon, Barberhouse Acid Rap, Music, Music, Music, My Baby Just Cares for Me, I Left My Heart In San Francisco, My Funny Valentine, Baby, Hooked on a Feeling, John Blund
