The Horror Honeys: Phantom Friday Jam ~ Castin' My Spell on You

Phantom Friday Jam ~ Castin' My Spell on You

Johnny Otis ~ Castin' My Spell On You


I took a goat's tooth, an old shoe, and put them in the ground 
ground, 
ground ground, ground ground 
I took an old dish, a dry fish, and made a crazy sound sound, 
sound sound, sound sound 
I took a goose egg, a frog leg, and hid them in a sack sack, 
sack sack, sack sack 
I got a Hindu, to tattoo, a genii on my back back, 
back back, back back 

I'm castin' my spell on you, I'm castin' my spell on you 

I'm castin' my spell on you, you'll never never be untrue


As an admittedly witchy girl, I love this song for it's late 50s aesthetic, catchy bobby-sox style backbeat paired with adorably spooky and catchy lyrics. Re-released in the 1970s by Roy Orbison, I MUCH prefer the original to Roy's treatment. Gimmie that old time religion, Johnny, and some hair of the dog while you're at it. ~HH
