Monday Magick: Screamin’ Jay Hawkins – I Put a Spell on You (Video)

Screamin' Jay Hawkins - I Put a Spell on You

This week’s Monday Magick entry comes from the grandaddy of mixing black magic with music, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins. The 1956 single “I Put a Spell on You” put the Ohio-born Bluesman on the map, while his over the top performing style, complete with macabre props, set the stage for what would become “Shock Rock”.

Monday Magick is a new feature here at Imageyenation. I plan to post a “popular” song that makes some allusion, whether straightforward or metaphoric, to magick, the supernatural, or occult, every Monday.

Music is magick.
