Y is for You Can do Magic #AtoZChallenge

For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of songs about magic. (Fitting for a fantasy author.)

Y is for “You Can do Magic” by the folk-rock duo, America. This British group (originally a trio) released the song in 1982 from their album View from the Ground. It was written by singer-songwriter Russ Ballard.

The song was a comeback hit for the group whose last Top 40 hit was six years earlier in 1976. The song hit number 8 in the U.S. in 1982.

“You can do magic
You can have anything that you desire
Magic, and you know
You’re the one who can put out the fire”

Again a song about a bewitching woman…
