#ESCWeek For a long long time Swedes didn't know s**t about music. We were hammering away as most other countries, translating popular tunes to Swedish, living in our own little bubble. But then it all changed and Swedish pop started to grow. Just like the fact that Beatles released their first single on the same day as James Bonds "Dr No" premiered (October 5th 1962), sparkling a new British invasion, the Swedish pop wonder has a day of birth. It’s April 6th 1974, when ABBA conquered ESC in Bristol, on the very same day as this tune reached no 1 on Billboard - the first time ever by a Swedish artist. It should be said that Blue Swede didn’t sing the original song. BJ Thomas did that… and it was written by Mark James who became more famous and financially secure when he wrote both ”Suspicious Minds” and ”Always on My Mind”.   16

On this day in 1974 the number one Billboard hit was Blue Suede's cover of Hooked On A Feeling...Originally released by B.J. Thomas https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vE2lY7i5TPo The original Oooonga Chackas pop version was my Jonathon King cover from 1971 https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=13&v=vNLo7OzNd_Q It's been featured in a couple of #cheese flicks as well as a couple of TeeVee shows #covers I also found this Bubblerock edit of the tune entertaining even though Agnetha of ABBA comes across as a voyeur watching me watch the video...Better here than the Burger King...I'm sure @capnhollis and @JakePleaseStahp would agree https://vimeo.com/92548476 Have a great Hump Day my fellow jammers!!!   5

From last week and a hint of sci fi to something from the excellent Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack.   3
