- Reaction score
B.J. Thomas recorded the original version in 1968; the cover version with the annoying "tribal chants" was done by Blue Swede, a pop group from Sweden.And there's one version of "Hooked on a Feeling" that I don't like. The version that sounds like a tribal version. Not sure if that's the original or not, or who performed it (and I don't know who performed the other version). The other version has a better tune and better music, but that tribal-sounding one is really annoying.
As for one of the songs I can't stand: "Ain't No Sunshine (When She's Gone)"
by Bill Withers. That song is so depressing and gloomy, and the repetitive "I know" section is so monotonous, I'd rather change the station or turn off my radio than listen to that drag of a song......
(My car stereo only gets AM stations because the FM band is kaput, and I'm hoping to get a better one someday....)
