Music Monday - I Put a Spell on You

It's Music Monday time!  Today we look at three versions of I Put a Spell on You.  There are so many more, but we'll stick with these three for now.

Let my start by saying that I love She & Him!  Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward make such a great team.  And I'm such a fan of Zooey Deschanel.  Is there anything she can't do??  Answer: No!  She's amazing!!  She has the most amazing voice, she's a great actress, her style is better than anyone.  She can do no wrong.  Love, love, love her!

Okay, back to the song.  She & Him were on Conan last week and they sang I Put a Spell on You.  Wow!  It sounded so great!  Perfection!!

Sorry for the commercial.  I could only find it on TBS.

See??   Awesome!

A post about this song would not be complete without hearing Screamin' Jay Hawkins sing it.  I tried to find the video of the performance I saw the first time I heard it but it was nowhere to be found.  He came out of a coffin!  It's completely crazy!  He was always very theatrical in his you can see from the performance I could find.

It is so strange how often I have been coming across songs by Nina Simone lately.  She has a version of this song, too!
