"I Put A Spell On you" x 2

You have surely heard this song, the version by Screamin' Jay Hawkins has been featured on commercials and in countless films and television shows. The Nina Simone version is valuable simply as a chance to hear Nina's inimitable voice and style... well, the same can be said for Screamin' Jay and the voodoo blues he concocts on the track he wrote.

  2. These two versions are definitely the most definitive. Screamin' Jay's is probably impossible to beat, but when Nina sings it...you're convinced that someone is getting hexed.
