MAGIC – for SONG LYRIC SUNDAY

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 7/9/17

Today, the theme for Song Lyric Sunday is Magic. We were to find songs about magic, and there are so many of them, it was hard to choose just one.

This is a fun challenge, and if you’d like to join in, and see other entries, too, just click the above link for details!

Thanks for the fun prompts, Helen! 🙂

This first one I’ve liked since I first heard it. I like all of the Steve Miller Band’s songs, though, and I listen to them all the time.

***

“Abracadabra”, by the Steve Miller Band, was released in 1982, from as a single from the album, “Abracadabra”. It is on the Capitol Label, and was written by Steve Miller.

I heat up, I can’t cool down
You got me spinning
‘Round and ’round
‘Round and ’round and ’round it goes
Where it stops nobody knows

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burning flame
Burning flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

Abra abracadabra
I wanna reach out and grab ya
Abracadabra
Abracadabra

You make me hot, you make me sigh
You make me laugh, you make me cry
Keep me burning for your love
With the touch of a velvet glove

Abra abracadabra
I wanna reach out and grab ya
Abracadabra
Abracadabra

I feel the magic in your caress
I feel magic when I touch your dress
Silk and satin, leather and lace
Black panties with an angel’s face

I see magic in your eyes
I hear the magic in your sighs
Just when I think I’m gonna get away
I hear those words that you always say

Abra abracadabra
I wanna reach out and grab ya
Abracadabra
Abracadabra

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burning flame
Burning flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

I heat up, I can’t cool down
My situation goes ’round and ’round
I heat up, I can’t cool down
My situation goes ’round and ’round
I heat up, I can’t cool down
My situation goes ’round and ’round

This song is a favorite of mine, too. It was also one of the featured songs in the movie soundtrack of “Tokyo Pop”. That movie is definitely one of my favorites. In the movie the song was sung by Carrie Hamilton, daughter of Carol Burnett. Carrie has sadly passed away now, but she was a wonderful actress.

“Do You Believe in Magic”, by the Lovin’ Spoonful, was written by John Sebastian, and released in 1965. It is on the Kama Sutra label, and was a single from the album, “Do You Believe in Magic”.

Do you believe in magic in a young girl’s heart
How the music can free her, whenever it starts
And it’s magic, if the music is groovy
It makes you feel happy like an old-time movie
I’ll tell you about the magic, and it’ll free your soul
But it’s like trying to tell a stranger ’bout rock and roll

If you believe in magic don’t bother to choose
If it’s jug band music or rhythm and blues
Just go and listen it’ll start with a smile
It won’t wipe off your face no matter how hard you try
Your feet start tapping and you can’t seem to find
How you got there, so just blow your mind

If you believe in magic, come along with me
We’ll dance until morning ’til there’s just you and me
And maybe, if the music is right
I’ll meet you tomorrow, sort of late at night
And we’ll go dancing, baby, then you’ll see
How the magic’s in the music and the music’s in me

Yeah, do you believe in magic
Yeah, believe in the magic of a young girl’s soul
Believe in the magic of rock and roll
Believe in the magic that can set you free
Ohh, talking ’bout magic

Songwriters
JOHN SEBASTIAN

  1. Great choices. Lovin’ Spoonful! Haven’t thought about them in a lifetime. Right away it brought back memories of high school summer vacation at the city pool, and of course, girls!

  2. I haven’t heard Abracadabra since I was a kid! It brought back a huge smile and had me laughing and bouncing in my seat. Same with your second choice. Great stuff this week! Thanks so much for sharing!

    • Wonderful! It’s good that our kids get to hear what we grew up listening to. I know ours have been listening to ‘our’ music forever. Most of it they actually like! 🙂
