Yes, we realize this is the third piece in a row covering this, but it revealed what the clue Murphy teased in Episode Ten was (which Murphy said would be “given in a medium we haven’t ever done”, leading us to consider styles of shooting and other things way off base, rather than a simple song choice) in the tenth episode, “The Name Game” was:
Many “American Horror Story” fans had speculated that the Salem Witch Trials or New Orleans’ witchcraft and voodoo would be the subject of Season 3 after Murphy told viewers there was a hint about the upcoming season in the “American Horror Story: Asylum” episode, titled “The Name Game.” When a jukebox in the rec room played the 1950s classic “I Put A Spell On You,” many audience members bet (correctly) on bewitching.

We hadn’t even thought of it, possibly because most of the episode had us levitating (not to mention jaw-dropper after jaw-dropper). Yes, the first song played on the new jukebox for Briarcliff Manor’s day room was announced loudly and proudly by Sister Mary Demon to be specially dedicated to Judy Martin. Then the opening to “I Put A Spell On You” began as Dr. Thredson/Bloody Face entered the day room, to the horror of Lana and Kit.
Remember the song that played in the next episode the jukebox and Jude were featured together in? We do! It was “Love Potion #9″. Murphy had teased there’d be another hint in the episode “Spilt Milk”, and we’re going to go out on a limb here that was it.
