That gum I like is totally back in style!

In celebration of the very exciting announcement this week that Twin Peaks will return in 2016 (with David Lynch directing every episode!), this weekend's theme is going to feature songs from or inspired by that series and/or David Lynch. Since I love that show and David Lynch so, so much, though, I'm starting the weekend early by featuring a very Lynchian song/video--Lynda Kay's cover of "I Put A Spell on You"!

Twin Peaks is known for its torchy, dream-pop score and cabaret scenes, and Lynda Kay brings all that, plus her bold, Patsy Cline-like voice, to the the classic Screamin' Jay Hawkins song. She's been singing in and around L.A. for many years, after relocating from her native Texas, and has released a full album, 2010's Dream My Darling, and an EP, last year's The Allure of Lynda Kay. Today's video showcases her cabaret-meets-classic country style (high, high hair, sparkly, sparkly garments, and a sultry, sultry smile) and gives away a few of her magic secrets. Just a dash of Vampira's Tears, a pinch of Lizzie Borden's Eyelashes, and a generous spray of Aqua Net in a steaming pot will get you one hell of a night on the town!
