This month I’m focusing on One Hit Wonders of the 70s.

Today our song is:  Magic

Wikipedia tells us this about the song:

"Magic" is a 1974 song by Scottish pop rock band Pilot, and was the first hit single for the group. It was written by band members David Paton and Billy Lyall for their debut album, From the Album of the Same Name

According to Paton, the song is inspired by the sunrise on Blackford Hill in Edinburgh. In a 2012 interview with Hotdisc Television, Paton also stated that at the time, his wife said she had "never seen a daybreak," which also inspired the song.



  1. This is a great song. I'm surprised at how many bands had just one hit.

  2. I always loved this song. And that lead singer has one of those dimpled chins (cleft chin) that I always go for.
