Watchman's Note

This is a journey to the best designs in the world of Handpicked and presented (along with my own artwork) by yours truly, the driving force behind Surreality designs. We'll discover great artists and special products -mostly with a taste for the eccentric. But let us not confine ourselves in specific genres: the possibilities are endless and so is the great art one can find at Zazzle.


I put a Screamin' Jay on you

Here is a true master of the grotesque, the Pope of Weird Rock 'n' Roll , Screamin' Jay Hawkins, in a great performance of his classic I put a spell on you. Wild, crazy, surreal, the kind of showmanship that put dark theatrics, black humor and voodoo extravaganza in the map of modern music. His influence is crucial in artists as diverse as Alice Cooper, Marylin Manson, Black Sabbath, The Fuzztones and Dread Zeppelin.It so happens that all this comes to serve a strong backbone of great music and of songs that stood the test of time.

[Also, if you liked this you'd be more than happy to check a splendid cover version from Shane McGowan and his talented friends, recorded for Haiti's aid.]
