Here's something I've been working on as I upgrade the music I use in my show.

How many songs can you think of that refer to magic in the lyrics and/or title? I'll get you started with my list...

[Uh Oh, It's] Magic (The Cars)
Abracadabra (Steve Miller Band)
Black Magic Woman (Carlos Santana)
Do You Believe in Magic (Lovin Spoonful)
Every Little Thing She Does is Magic (The Police)
Magic Carpet Ride (Steppenwolf)
Magic Man (Heart)
That Old Black Magic (Louis Prima)
This Magic Moment (Jay & The Americans)
You Can Do Magic (America)

That's all I have. Any input from the rest of y'all?

Thanks for these additions!

Anyone know any good download sources, now that there's no more free P2P downloading?

Oh, and here's one for mentalists...

Another song is "Magic Man" by Robert Forrest & Winter. It has a bit of Blue's and Soul mix sound I haven't seen it in some time. I have it, of all places, on a 45. If any of you find it on CD, please let me know.

It's A Kind Of magic by Queen

My brother won a competition on the radio for some Copperfield tickets for figuring out 13 songs that played for 13 seconds...each second they had the word magic, and you had to figure out the song and the artist....well, he won the tickets...and he was part of 13....go figure...it all made sense...13 songs...13 artist...to be part of 13...dang, that is a lot of 13....

Cheers

Big summer pop hit back in the 70's called Magic by a group called Pilot.

Just thought of another one, though it may be a stretch: Grand Illusion by Styx.

Magic to Do- from the musical Pippin

We used this one in an X-Mas show with different lyrics for the verses, doing the Zig Zag, Broom Suspension, Head Twister...lot of fun!

As much as I like when songs make reference to magic, I feel that if it's overdone/overused in a show, audiences will begin to find it a bit lame and corny. I think songs like this are good for intro or ending background music, but I certainly hope there isn't someone out there who is performing each of his effects to a "magic" song. I'd add a song to the list, but I can't think of one that hasn't been listed yet.

So You Wanted to See the Wizard - From The Wiz soundtrack

There's also a track from Ghostbusters called, "It's Magic." Also on the soundtrack for the movie Leap of Faith, there is a track called, "Ready for a Miracle."

Everyone who does or wants to do magic in any form should see Leap of Faith!

There's a song on Blondie's "No Exit" album called "Night Wind Sent". The first time I heard it, I thought how wonderfully it would lend itself to a stage levitation routine. The lyrics talk about a journey through smoke and mirrors, and I think that fits here.

You can hear a sample if you serch the album on amazon.com.

Sugar Ray (14:59...I think is the CD) did a remake of 'Abracadabra', and someone did a remix of 'Magic Carpet Ride' that can be found on the 'Go' soundtrack. Both updated the songs to make them a little more modern. Check them out.

On that note, don't forget the song also on the Ghostbusters 2 soundtrack "Higher and Higher."

Here is one no one probably would have said, but it really is a good song. I used to use it when I did the Flying Carpet illusion with a child from the audience:

Magic is a Child - Nektar

Check it out.
