And....POOF!


Welcome to the re-launch of It's Magic. I'm Dr. Moshe of Dr. Moshe's Medicinal Music and have joined forces with AK of Soul Shower to create this joint venture. For those of you unfamiliar with It's Magic, we cover all genres, both old and new, mainstream or obscure. Basically, whatever we feel like writing about (and whatever we feel you'll be interested in).

To kick things off, AK and I have devised a 'game' that we are going to be playing over the next 10 days (the next two weeks, Mon.-Fri.) - The Cover Circle. The Cover Circle is essentially this - on Monday we will be posting three songs. The first song will be a cover song by The Beatles. The second song will be a cover performed by the artist that The Beatles covered. The third will be a cover song performed by the artist that was covered by the artist that was covered by The Beatles. We will continue doing this, posting three songs a day, linking all of the artists by songs they've performed of other artists. On our tenth and final day of The Cover Circle, the final song posted will be another cover performed by The Beatles, completing our circle. I know that might sound a little confusing, but once we get rolling, you'll understand what we're doing.

As a little bonus, here are three songs with 'welcome back' type themes that we thought would be appropriate for our re-launch (sorry, no "Welcome Back, Mr. Kotter").

Al Kooper
"Back On My Feet"
1971


Thin Lizzy
"The Boys Are Back In Town"
1976


John Lennon
"(Just Like) Starting Over"
1980

Beatles: "Twist & Shout"
Isley Brothers: "Please Please Please"
James Brown: "A Cottage For Sale"
Little Willie John: "Leave My Kitten Alone"

. . . the magic is back . . . .
