Song of the day: Selena Gomez – "Magic"

September 1, 2010

The 14-year-old in the household (Hi, Natalie!) accosted me the other day and said “Selena Gomez sings Magic,” to which I replied “What kind of magic?”

The soon-to-be-an-adolescent clarified my misunderstanding: “No, she sings that song you like, ‘Magic'”.

It then dawned on me that she was talking about “Magic” by Pilot. And Disney tween queen Selena Gomez had recorded a cover version of it.

I was afraid.

The whippersnapper then said, “Go on, put that on your blog.”

OK, whippersnapper, I will. (Because it gives me an excuse to play the original.)

Before we get to Miss Gomez’s effort, I’d like to refresh your memory with a song that’s always been one of my favouritest radio hits:

Pilot – “Magic (1974)


Just between you and me, I think that’s dreadful*.

(*I listened to it three times, and each time was as bad as the other.)
