BJ Thomas -Tribute

“Hooked on a Feeling” and other favorites

It was sad to learn that BJ Thomas passed away over the weekend. Here’s an artist that became popular before I was born in the 70s. He’s had many hits, including one that I heard almost everyday growing up: “As Long As We Got Each Other,” the theme song for Growing Pains, one of my favorite shows from childhood. One that my grandfather loved was “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head.” I can still remember him dancing around and singing the song. Another familiar song I can remember hearing on the radio as a child is “I Just Can’t Help Believing.”

“Hooked on a Feeling” was originally performed by BJ Thomas, but it became popular once again with the release of the film, Guardians of the Galaxy. The difference is that the rendition used for the movie was covered by Blue Swede. Hope you all enjoy these shares today.


Lyrics:

I can’t stop this feeling
Deep inside of me
Girl, you just don’t realize
What you do to me

When you hold me
In your arms so tight
You let me know
Everything’s all right


I’m hooked on a feeling
I’m high on believing
That you’re in love with me

Lips as sweet as candy
Its taste is on my mind
Girl, you got me thirsty
For another cup of wine


Got a bug from you girl
But I don’t need no cure
I’ll just stay a victim
If I can for sure

All the good love
When we’re all alone
Keep it up girl
Yeah, you turn me on


I’m hooked on a feeling
I’m high on believing
That you’re in love with me


All the good love
When we’re all alone
Keep it up girl
Yeah, you turn me on

I’m hooked on a feeling
I’m high on believing
That you’re in love with me

I’m hooked on a feeling
And I’m high on believing
That you’re in love with me

I said I’m hooked on a feeling
And I’m high on believing
That you’re in love with me
I’m hooked on a feeling

Today’s share:

Oscar Peterson Rose

We just planted a few new roses in a newly landscaped area in our backyard. This new area is now complete, except for a few little staining projects to finish on the deck. The weather has cooled down, and it’s raining, which is such a blessing. It’s been a rough week.

We have a handful of Knock Out roses, but this new rose is something else.

This Week’s Reads: For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten and Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner #AmReading #Books #Reads

Things have been very busy with planting and outdoor work, which has slowed my reading colossally. We ended up deciding on a whim to fix one particular landscaping area behind my house, and it turned into a huge project but a fun and rewarding one. It’ll be nice to have some new, different plants to share for Flower Friday too.

I just finished up That Weekend, which turned out to be pretty good. I’ll post my review within a week as this releases in June.

I’m reading with the kids The Dark Lord Clementine and Echo Mountain. The first one is taking some time to get into.

Last time I shared Steve Winwood “Back in the High Life”

This week’s share:

Chris Stapleton

“Fire Away”

I’ve contemplated sharing this song’s video for some time now. It’s one of my favorite Chris Stapleton songs, but the video gives it a whole different meaning. It brings awareness to mental health, which to me is very important.

My husband and I are huge Ben Foster fans. He acts as the police officer character in this video. Due to the nature of this, I’ll warn ahead of time that it deals with mental illness and suicide.
