Song of the Day: B. J. Thomas, “Hooked On A Feeling”

Saturday evening, I heard that singer B. J. Thomas had passed away from lung cancer at age 78. We extend our sympathy to his family. "Hooked On A Feeling," from his 1968 album On My Way, reached #5 in the US and #3 in Canada in 1968.

  2. I saw a clip of him singing this in a tv show …and at the end of the song he said β€œOoga Chaka” as a salute to Blue Swede.

  3. I debated whether I should blog and BJ Thomas but in the end I chose to go with my original thought to take the holiday off. My older sister introduced me to his music when I was quite young.she loved playing the piano and was always learning to play his tunes.

    “Rain drops keep fallin’ on my head” takes me back to the yonder years.
    About a year ago it was my ringtone, and people would say, why did you pick up the phone, we want to keep hearing the song. πŸ™‚

    R.I.P B.J. Thomas, as the heavens shower you with a cosmic rain of love. πŸ™‚

  5. Another legend crosses over the rainbow. He enthralled us with his voice like no other.

    It’s not uncanny that I was listening to “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on my Head” on a loop the last few days.
    RIP, cradled in almighty’s arms, B.J. as the raindrops shower you with the heaven’s choicest blessings.

    Hope things are fine in your neck of woods, John. Coming by after a while.
