Classic Rock Magic

The Y! Music Playlist Blog

Musicians dig magic. You can find thousands of songs about the mystical arts, whether it be of the pull-a-rabbit-out-of-the-hat variety, or the mystical, Gandolf type. When I think of "magic" songs I think of classic rock, mostly because I get an image of a 1970s model conversion van with an airbrushed wizard on the side -- the windows are down and an 8-track player blasting some classic Electric Light Orchestra. I've already done a playlist of "Wizard Songs", so for this playlist I've expanded the parameters from "wizard" to "magic", while constraining the list to classic rock, instead of being open ended in regard to genre. This 14 song playlist is the result. So get your magic wand and crank it up man!
