Blue Swede

Blue Swede succeeded with a few singles during the 1970s which were covers of other artists' material rather than any original songs. A cover of the late-'60s B.J. Thomas feel-good single "Hooked on a Feeling" hit the top of the charts in the U.S. in the mid-'70s with Björn Skifs singing lead vocals. The single also hit number one in Holland, Australia, and Canada. It barely missed the top spot in the U.K., kept out of number one by Jonathan King's rendition. Late in the '90s, a new generation was exposed to Blue Swede's version when a partial clip was featured on the television program Ally McBeal.

Blue Swede next hit the Top Ten in the U.S. with a cover of "Never My Love," which was originally recorded by the Association. A medley that combined "I'm Alive" and "Hush" fared better in Scandinavia than anywhere else. The Hollies originally recorded the former song, and the latter was done by Deep Purple. ~ Linda Seida, Rovi

One of the ineffable questions of the universe:
Who figured out that a cover of a sappy love song had to include a Swedish tribal chant to make it an internationa l hit?
