Covers: I Put a Spell on You

The original version of “I Put a Spell on You” was by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins in 1956.    “Hawkins wore a long cape, and appeared onstage by rising out of a coffin in the midst of smoke and fog. The act was a sensation, later bolstered by tusks worn in Hawkins’ nose, on-stage snakes and fireworks, and a cigarette-smoking skull named “Henry”. ”

There are covers by a variety of artists including Nina Simone (1965), Creedence Clearwater Revival (1968) and Annie Lennox (2014).
