Very much the way "Breaking Bad"'s finale has helped Badfinger's "Baby Blue" become a classic to a whole new generation the new "Guardians Of The Galaxy" trailer has caused downloads of Blue Suede's "Hooked On A Feeling" to sky-rocket lately.
Watch the movie trailer here and see why.
And now a feathered back flashback to Blue Swede's Hooked On A Feeling live from 1974
I've been in radio since 1981, starting on Cape Cod, and in Boston, Massachusetts where I grew up. (when The Sox and Patriots both broke everyone's hearts, and the Celtics ruled. Funny how things change.)
After 3 years in Las Vegas in the late 80's, early 90's I was looking for work and luckily found myself here in Cleveland in 1991, through some mutual radio friends. I got to play the hits as Jammin 92's Night guy until 1999.
After watching my former company screw up the "Jammin' Oldies" thing for a couple of years, I settled in at what would eventually become iheartmedia, and iHeartradio, playing people's classic favorites... the best decision I ever made!
