You would have had to have been hiding in a mineshaft deep on the far side of the Moon to have escaped the hype around this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy blockbuster movie. Among its virtues, though, is the incessantly catchy hit "Hooked On A Feeling," a 1968 B.J. Thomas hit that became locked in our minds by the Blue Swede version with the "ooga chakas."
Our new arrangement comes from Jon Nicholas, director of the Lexington Kentuckians Chorus and a name you may recognize from another chart of his that we published last year, The Beach Boys' "Little Saint Nick." You can listen to Tony DeRosa ooga chaka his way through the learning tracks, too.
