For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of songs about magic. (Fitting for a fantasy author.)
V is for Van Halen’s song “Me Wise Magic.” This song was written by David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Michael Anthony and Alex Van Halen for the 1996 compilation album Best of – Volume I. David Lee Roth rejoined the band to write this song along with one other for the album (this as after being replaced with Sammy Hagar in 1985).
The song became the band’s 12th number 1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Track chart. It maintained the number one position for 6 weeks during the fall of 1996.
Nowhere could I find an answer as to what the song means and not sure it has anything to do with magic but hey, it fit my letter of the day.
