MUSIC VIDEO/SONG

"Magic" by Pilot - 


This was Pilot's first hit single. It was written by the band's keyboardist Billy Lyall and its guitarist David Paton and was produced by Alan Parsons. It was their only Top 40 hit in the US.
 
The band's guitarist David Paton performed (along with Pilot's other hit "January") this song as a soloist in the Countdown Spectacular 2 concert series in Australia, which occurred from August to September of 2007.
 
This song was used in the movies Herbie Fully Loaded (2005), Doogal (2006) and Magicians (2007).
 
In 2007, this song was used in a Pillsbury commercial.
 
In 2009 actress Selena Gomez recorded a cover for the soundtrack CD of the Disney Channel's Wizards of Waverly Place series. The song was released as the lead single for the soundtrack, thus creating renewed interest in Pilot's original version.
 
This was also heard in the independent film Eve and the Fire Horse, which takes place in the 1970s.

Any time I hear this song, I immediately go back to when I was about 7-8 yrs old and playing outside, in the summertime, with all of my friends.   Great memories behind this song!  yes

I liked the song a lot. But then again, I was walking around in polyester white bell bottoms, 5 inch collars on my shirts, sporting two or three necklaces with peace signs, and Greg Brady hair. Take all that for what it is worth.

'70s was great, so I hear.
