Goonish Musings: Hooked on a Feeling…of awesomeness!


So to those have been following along with this movie as closely as I have, because lord knows the Goon so can not wait for this movie to grace the world with its presence, you know that yesterday we got the first trailer for it, and boy did it do a great job of wetting my appetite for the final product.

If you missed it, or just haven’t had a chance to watch it yet, here’s your chance:

So, how awesome was that?

Very is the answer you’re looking for, btw.

But the awesomeness of this movie is not why I am taking a few minutes out of my day to talk about this.  It’s the song, that glorious, glorious song they play in the background.  For those who don’t know it, the song is called “Hooked on a Feeling” and is a 1968 pop song written by Mark James and performed by B.J. Thomas.  However, this version was the 1974 cover, done by Swedish pop group Blue Swede, or as I like to call it, that awesome Ooga Chacka version.  I loved this because the song was just so very random and unexpected, and absolutely glorious.  I grew up listening that song, and other songs of that time, Mama Goon loves the oldies, so hearing that make an appearance in the trailer for a movie I am already so very very much looking forward to, was just flat out amazing.  I applaud whoever decided to include this song in the trailer.

Okay, fan boy praise time is over, but just had to get that out.  People need to appreciate just how epic that song, and by extension, movie trailer is.

Goon out.
