“I Put A Spell On You” (Live On Conan) (Video)


    If anyone was in any doubt about Zooey Deschanel’s abilities as a singer, they only need to turn to this cover of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ “I Put a Spell On You” on Conan O’Brien’s show last night (Dec. 9) to quickly debunk that idea. Deschanel and M. Ward originally recorded the track for a Starbucks compilation put out in 2009, but it’s difficult to imagine that version sounding as good as this one, which features an appropriately minimal guitar backing and vocals that are just belted out. Fantastic stuff.
