Blue Swede

Blue Swede was a Swedish rock band from the early to mid-1970s that succeeded with a few singles which were covers of other artists’ material. The band was originally called "BlĂ„blus" (Swedish for "blue denim shirt") and featured Björn Skifs singing the lead vocals. The band got their international break-through in 1974 with their cover of the 1969 B. J. Thomas song "Hooked on a Feeling", adapted by British pop eccentric Jonathan King. The group had a US top 10 hit with a cover of The Association’s "Never My Love." Also of note, the group recorded a medley that combined "I’m Alive" by The Hollies and "Hush" by Deep Purple which played better in Scandinavia than anywhere else.
