There are quite some cover versions of Screamin' Jay Hawkins' most famous song as you can see in the list below.

Leon Russel also composed a tune entitled "I put a spell on you" - it is not the song written by Jalacy J. Hawkins. A whole bunch of the songs on Leon Russell's first album had familiar titles but that was it - they were all new Leon compositions with just titles that were the same as other songs.

Notorious BIG has sampled "I put a spell on you" in his song "Kick in the door".
