“I Put a Spell On You” (Haiti Charity Song) (Video)

    The amount of musical efforts being produced to help Haiti has stacked up to such an extent that it’s difficult to keep track of them all. At this point it would probably be easier to just give money directly than wade through all the songs on offer, but this one from Shane MacGowan is one of the few that’s worth your time.

     

    The Pogues singer brought together Nick Cave, Johnny Depp, Bobby Gillespie from Primal Scream, Mick Jones from the Clash and a few others for this version of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ “I Put a Spell On You.” The video is a perfunctory studio shoot, but the most important thing is the link embedded throughout, which provides instruction on how to donate.
