SONGS ABOUT WITCHCRACT and voodoo are not necessarily bad – in fact, they can be very cool! Some of the best witchcraft songs are the classics. You can dedicate them to black magic babes on Halloween, for instance! These songs are usually extremely sympathetic towards the many women who have been accused of witchcraft through the centuries. ‘Witchcraft Song’ is a good example, as it starts with a medley of voices saying “wake up” and ends with a chorus describing a witch being rescued from drowning.
‘Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’
Jalacy “Screamin’ Jay Hawkins” was a singer and songwriter. He wrote the song “I Put a Spell on You” and recorded it. It was chosen as one of the 500 songs in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Hawkins was a Chicago bluesman, and he incorporated the voodo theme into his music. While many blues artists would cautiously play with the subject, Hawkins jumped into the world of voodoo without a second thought. He made lots of bubbles along the way. He was not serious, but he was influenced by B-movies.
The song evoked the images of Voodoo and Witchcraft. Hawkins’ version of “She Put a Wamee on Me” is Hawkins’ first attempt at Voodoo R&B. It tells a story about a witchy woman and is arranged in suspenseful fashion. Interestingly, Hawkins failed to enlist the services of Tony Iommi, but Mickey Baker provided some great hoodoo electric blues licks.
The song has become a cult classic. Jay Hawkins was the son of a Blackfoot Indian, and he is a renowned musician. Hawkins began his career as a blues singer before transforming himself into a shock rock legend. His stage performances were spooky and macabre.
Despite the controversy, Hawkins’ music is surprisingly accessible. The singer’s early recordings are filled with references to witchcraft and voodo. Hawkins’ career was a long and fruitful one. His stage show featured coffins, voodoo-inspired sets, costumes and props. The band’s stage show featured costumes that resembled witches and possessed people. Hawkins also featured a skull on a cane, Henry, a cigarette-smoking skull, and songs about bowel complaints and madness.
The song was a hit for Hawkins in 1956. He made several appearances in movies and continued to write songs. He appeared in the biopic American Hot Wax, about Alan Freed, and in the Jim Jarmusch film Mystery Train. His song “I Put a Spell on You” was also featured on the soundtrack of Mystery Train. The film also featured Hawkins as a hotel night clerk in Mystery Train.
In this song, a man falls in love with a witch doctor and tries to convince her to fall in love with him. The song describes the machinations of the witch doctor.
Marianne Faithfull’s song “Broken English” was released as the second single from her album of the same name. Faithfull wrote the song herself, with lyrics that are heavily influenced by politics and terrorism. It was inspired by a documentary she watched about the Baader-Meinhof gang and Ulrike Meinhof, who was a co-founder of the group.
In the song, a young woman agrees to a witch’s terms, but then realizes that she’s been duped. After a while, she finds herself a prisoner of the witch.

‘Dolly Dagger’ is interpreted by biographers as a song about the suicide of Jimi Hendrix’s girlfriend Devon Wilson. Wilson committed suicide in 1971, and blamed herself for the death of Jimi Hendrix. The book ‘An Untold Story of Jimi Hendrix’ by James Lough claims Wilson was the one who gave Hendrix his final dose of heroin.
A song about witchcraft and Voodo isn’t always bad. In fact, there are some witchy songs that are very funny or even touching.

The song’s lyrics describe a mysterious woman dressed in black robes, and she may even be Stevie herself.
Originally intended for a film, ‘Dolly Dagger’ was a follow-up to Band Of Gypsys. In the end, it was hijacked for the soundtrack of the Rainbow Bridge movie. While the film was an unscripted mess of underhanded deals and unhinged silliness, Jimi Hendrix’s performance on the song was the only redeeming feature.
