Magnet and Steel

May 23, 2024

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

Today our song is:  Magnet and Steel

Wikipedia tells us this about the song:

"Magnet and Steel" is a hit single written and performed by Walter Egan, released in March 1978. It was the first and biggest hit on Egan's second solo LP, Not Shy. It reached number eight on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number nine in Canada. It spent 22 weeks on the American charts.

Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham, members of Fleetwood Mac, sang background vocals along with several others; Buckingham was also one of the song's producers, along with Egan and Richard Dashut. Nicks was also Egan's inspiration for the song.



  1. Another great song. With all that star power you'd think he have had more hits

  2. I don't remember ever hearing this one until I started listening to Yacht Rock channels on the streaming channels...
