What do you get if you cross Spike Jones together with Cab Callaway and throw in some zombie voodoo? The result is Screamin’ Jay Hawkins.
Sometimes we hear songs over and over throughout our lives and never really pay attention to them. However the next time you hear Hawkins 1957 hit, I Put a Spell on You, listen to it actively and you will be treated to a real piece of Americana weirdness.
Hawkins died in 2000 and fortunate someone posted this gem on YouTube. I Put a Spell on You. It is every bit as interesting as the studio version.
