When You Hold Me In Your Arms

Saturday, January 05, 2013
There are two versions of Hooked On A Feeling that are famous. There have been other covers, but the two definitive versions are BJ Thomas' version, featuring an electric sitar and Blue Swede's version that includes the 'ooga chaka' chant at the beginning.

Interestingly enough, the chant did not originate from the Blue Swede version, rather coming from a third cover by Jonathan King. I am not sure which version I like best. Diane prefers the BJ Thomas version, but I like the kind of cheesiness in the Blue Swede version.

Which version do you like?
