Swedish garage rock band The Hives release an electrifying, rocking version of the classic “Hooked On A Feeling” by Björn Skifs. Skifs himself sang it live in the last edition of Eurovision.

Faithful to their characteristic style, The Hives They give us a vibrant and unbridled version that captures the essence of rock. The performance is fast-paced and full of the attitude that defines the band. This version of “Hooked On A Feeling” is part of the collection Spotify Singlesa Spotify project that invites a variety of artists to reinterpret the songs they admire. The Hives, champions of the art of covering, thus join this musical celebration. Let us also remember that the song became popular internationally thanks to the version signed by Blue Swedeused by Quentin Tarantino on the soundtrack of “Reservoir Dogs” and which was later recovered to “Guardians of the Galaxy”.

“I think there is a synergy effect from the fact that Swedish music has reached abroad, and you feel that it is possible. We can't make it more perfect than the original, so we did the opposite: we ruined it but made it sound exciting “, comments Pelle Almqvistsinger of the band, in a press release.
