Song of the Week: “I Put A Spell On You”

Now here’s a good one:  Pogues front man Shane MacGowan has recruited a battalion of punk stars to cover Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ song “I Put a Spell on You”, with money going to the Dublin charity Concern Worldwide’s Haiti relief efforts. The track will be released March 7 and can be pre-ordered at Amazon.

The video features footage of MacGowan, Nick Cave, Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie, the Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde, the Clash’s Mick Jones (banging on a fire extinguisher!), the Sex Pistols’ Glen Matlock, and more recording in the studio.  And yeah, that’s  Johnny Depp playing guitar.
