Song of the Day: Donovan – “Season of the Witch”

Happy Halloween Rocknutters! Let’s go with this classic for our song today, which at least feels Halloween-y in title. Off the 1966 album Sunshine Superman (happy 50th birthday this year to both the song and the album), it’s been covered by a long list of artists, including Robert Plant, Joan Jett, and Al Kooper, and has been used in many films and shows such as American Horror Story, True Blood, and the Tim Burton film Dark Shadows. Jimmy Page is on guitar on this track, so it’s not surprising Led Zeppelin used to warm up before gigs by playing it. Don’t stare at the image in the video for more than a few seconds though — it’ll most certainly mess with your head.
