Most of the great voices are instantly recognizable: Ella, Janis, Lena, Etta, Billie, and a host of others. Nina's gives me goose bumps.

Those low-pitched, husky, breathy, female voices: A friend described them sounding like a saxophone.  "The notes come out and you can hear them, but there's all this other sound in there."

Screamin' Jay Hawkins was pop? Maybe, thinkin' about it, he was. Still, it's funny to read about the song's roots (from wikipedia):

"Hawkins originally envisioned the tune as a refined ballad."<5> The entire band was intoxicated during a recording session where "Hawkins screamed, grunted, and gurgled his way through the tune with utter drunken abandon."<5> The resulting performance was no ballad but instead a "raw, guttural track" that became his greatest commercial success and reportedly surpassed a million copies in sales,<6><7> although it failed to make the Billboard pop or R&B charts

Bill, how about the version by Jeff Beck and Joss Stone from his latest CD?
There are some other cool tunes on it as well.  Interesting CD from El Becko.

Very nice interpretation.

But, for absolutely raw, screaming, painful, insane, and pure longing I have to give it to (me - dons flame retardant suit) Marilyn Manson.  It starts out slow and rough, get's very heavy/psychedelic, and proceeds to go straight off the deep end.  Look for it on the Lost Highway soundtrack.

This is my favourite Nina Simone tune (and she is my favourite jazz-singer)
She does it so well, adds a whole new dimension and feeling to the song
Truly a masterpiece, even though it's a cover!

As with many Simone songs (covers), she does something different with it. And something excellent. Her rendition of 'Strange Fruit'... same story, it becomes even darker than it already was. This one here: brooding and sensual. Wow.
