Johnny Depp, Chrissie Hynde, many more on Haiti tribute, 'I Put a Spell on You': Watch the video

Step back, Babs and Beiber: In a new Haiti tribute single, Celtic rock icon (and dental legend) Shane McGowan is joined by friends like Johnny Depp, the Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde, Nick Cave, Paloma Faith, Clash guitarist Mick Jones, the Sex Pistols’ Glen Matlock, Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie, and more an all-star cover of Screamin’ Jay Hawkin’s 1956 blues torcher “I Put a Spell on You”

Pre-order the single, profits of which go directly to Concern Worldwide‘s work in Haiti, here. And tell us: as uncharitable as it may be to judge, well, efforts devoted to charity, where would you place McGowan and co.’s contribution in the recent music-for-Haiti outpouring (e.g.“We Are the World,” “Everybody Hurts,” Linkin Park’s “Not Alone”)?

    I’m with you Ashley — this one is worth having. However, the remake of We Are The World is absolutely AWFUL. Would NEVER buy that piece of crap. But it doesn’t matter anyway, I already donated money.

    That was HOT! Surprised to see Shane McGowan — I thought he was, um, *incapacitated* by his legendary longtime alcohol intake. He looked pretty good (for Shane McGowan).

    Great article. I cant wait to hear more about your research tool. If it is as good as your other products, then you will have another winner. Your article pretty much summed up what I have been seeing too. Great to see some hard data.
