Screamin’ Jay Hawkins "I Put a Spell on You" recorded in 1956.

"Hawkins had originally intended to record "I Put a Spell on You" as a refined love song, a blues ballad. He reported, however, that the producer ”brought in ribs and chicken and got everybody drunk, and we came out with this weird version… I don’t even remember making the record. Before, I was just a normal blues singer. I was just Jay Hawkins. It all sort of just fell in place. I found out I could do more destroying a song and screaming it to death.”[5] (Source:  Wikipedia)
