Ooga chaka, hooga, hooga … it gets into your head, doesn’t it!

This song was a hit for BJ Thomas in 1969 – a gentler version than the Blue Swede cover. The song is upbeat and it carries you along on that positive vibe. It’s a song that you can’t really hear without feeling a bit better about life.

It had a resurgence of popularity in the 1990’s when local flavoured milk brand, Big M, used it in one of its advertising campaigns.
