Just curious, did Brainen hijack this show?
  Sat. 1/16/10 11:14am ted:

Whats the deal with the oka chaga thing in Hooked on a Feeling? Seems there were other songs that had that oka Chagga. Seems like it was an afterthought. We have a bubblegum song and lets put this chanting on it.

OK: this is what the Wiki thing says but I still don't get it. Maybe there is nothing to get :P

"Hooked on a Feeling" is a 1968 pop song written by Mark James originally performed by B. J. Thomas. Featuring the sound of the electric sitar, the song reached number five in 1969 on the Billboard Hot 100. This then had two successful covers. In 1971, Jonathan King produced his own version, adding ooka shaka jungle chants similar to, but not exactly the same as, Johnny Preston's "Running Bear." King described it as "a reggae rhythm by male voices." His version was a Top 30 hit throughout Europe.[citation needed]
In 1974 the Swedish pop group Blue Swede with Björn Skifs as lead singer did a cover, with the "ooka shaka" introduction. Their version reached number one in the United States and was revived on the Reservoir Dogs soundtrack in 1992. In 1975, this version was subject to some minor controversy when Wilson Bryan Key, in his book Subliminal Seduction, claimed the words "ooka shaka" are changed to the phrase "who got sucked off" at 0:31 into the song.
It was covered again in 1997 by David Hasselhoff.

Not sure what you mean. You say "We have a bubblegum song and lets put this chanting on it. " like its something bad.
  Sat. 1/16/10 11:21am ted:

Ha ha, No judgement. I'm just mental. Just seems that the two sounds clash.
  Sat. 1/16/10 11:22am Michael:

I hear "genius at work" - the idea of combining the 2 sounds = #1 hit!
  Sat. 1/16/10 11:23am ted:

OK! = #5 hit. Judgmental, get it?
  Sat. 1/16/10 11:26am ted:

I was hoping you had interviewed him and he had given some insight how he came to make that record.
  Sat. 1/16/10 11:50am John:

it has to be either "she and he" or "her and him".
  Sat. 1/16/10 12:01pm Bad Ronald:

The Silver Fox!
  Sat. 1/16/10 12:33pm Red:

Michael, A newsfeed is an RSS feed (that little icon you see next to the playlists). Your browser periodically checks, and pulls down updates.

A live-feed dynamically updates, like in Facebook. It's a 'push'.
  Sat. 1/16/10 12:34pm Dave R.:

Hey, you played Watch Dog! That's a Number One hit!
  Sat. 1/16/10 12:34pm Bun:

Miista Eddy Fadah!!
  Sun. 1/17/10 10:31pm Kevan A:

thought I'd give you a #1 hit.
This is from an old Vinyl comp I ripped called " The Beat Merchants-
British Beat Groups 1963-64 released around 1972.. It never was released on a CD but most of the songs have been comped since. Except this one. The Addicts - That's My Girl. It's a sure # 1 hit.
