Dec 102010

Just yesterday we named Starbucks’ Sweetheart 2010 collection the 18th best cover album of 2010. Today we look a little further back…to Starbucks’ Sweetheart 2009 set. That one featured She & Him – Zooey Deschanel and M.Ward – singing “I Put a Spell on You.”

They revived the cover on Conan last night, inexplicably melting hearts with one of the creepier stalker songs. Screamin’ Jay Hawkins may have sung the original, but there’s not much screaming going on here. Just a lot of spooky surf guitar and vocal belting. Watch below. (via Consequence of Sound)

Check out more She & Him at their website or MySpace.
