Fun Facts: Hawkins and his band got black-out drunk while recording the original version of the song, which was subsequently banned from radio airplay for being too raw and overtly sexual (for 1950's America). It was later covered (often making the billboard top 100) by Nina Simone, Credence Clearwater Revival, Marilyn Manson, and sampled by Notorious BIG and LL Cool J among others. "I Put a Spell on You" is currently used as theme music for a number of Disney attractions.
