For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of songs about magic. (Fitting for a fantasy author.) If you are here for my normal Quote of the Week or for my Monthly Recipe as this is the first Wednesday of the month, those features will return in May.
D is for “Do You Believe in Magic” by The Lovin’ Spoonfuls, an American band. The 1965 hit was written by band member John Sebastian. It was the first single from their debut studio album by the same name.
The single peaked at number 9 on the Billboard Top 100 chart. It was recorded by Shaun Cassidy in 1978. His version peaked at number 31. It was also later released by the pop-duo Aly and AJ in 2005.
The magic referred to in the song is music, which supplies happiness and freedom to those who make it and listen to it.
