Shane MacGowan and Friends: "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.

Was looking forward to this but it really is quite a trainwreck. Yikes!

couldn't disagree with you more, mfb. I think both the tune and vid are awesome. and nice to see that Shane has managed to keep on breathing.

Absolutely!!!! I think video shows us how much the talent has dropped off in the past 20 years. Depp seems a little wacky but MacGowan, Cave, Hynde, Gillespie, and Jones are nothing short of geniuses and this video shows it. Puts "We are the World" one and twenty-five to shame. I could, and sometimes have, listen to it all day long. Brilliant!!!!
