I Put A Spell On You Video-A-Thon

21 Oct

With Halloween right around the corner we pause for a few to consider I Put A Spell On You Screamin’ Jay Hawkins as one of the great fright night classics. It’s a song that will typically wind up on many a Halloween mix tape and for good reason. The bluesy, swampy, campy performance by Hawkins’ is much of the song’s charm. It’s also been covered by dozens of musicians over the years, some of which you can find with the original by Hawkins below.

    Speaking of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins …. ever see the Movie “Stanger Than Paradise” by Jim Jarmusch? Great use of this song in there. One of my fav movies.

    Best,
