JK2006 I've had so many E-Mail requests asking about the Ooga Chagga chant that I'm devoting a chapter to the explanation in my new book.
JK2006 Nope not inspired by any other record; just wanted different instruments to make a reggae rhythm and decided on male voices.
fourfour How did you come up with the "ooga chakka" bit?

Was it at all inspired by the "uga uga" in Johnny Preston's "Running Bear"?

Thank you.
JK2006 Yes Bjorn Skifs kindly called me to say he wanted to cover my version and did I mind? I said no - go ahead (mine had been released years earlier and was a big hit in many countries). Then America picked up on his photocopy (better label) and whoosh! You can't win them all. Same happened to me in Italy with Tritons covering my Satisfaction.

Oh well, the "satisfaction" I got from both was making them in the first place.
Andy Guardians Of The Galaxy has now taken over $200 million worldwide. I'm sure JK's bank balance would have been much healthier if they had chosen his version of Hooked On A Feeling rather than the Blue Swede cover.
