List Rules Songs with "magic" in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about magic as a subject.

The music world has always been fascinated with the subject of magic, producing songs about witches, warlocks, wizards and more. Songs like "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic" by The Police and "This Magic Moment" by Jay & The Americans show that the word magic is often used in the context of love, but that isn't always the case. This is a ranked list of the best songs about magic, as voted on by music fans like you. Some of the songs included below may have the words "magic" lyrics or title, while others are about magic, hypnotism, or sorcery as a subject or theme. If you're a magician who loves music then this is the ultimate collection of magic songs for your library.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the magic songs you think deserve that magical top spot, and downvote ones you want to curse down to the bottom of the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so it can cast its spell on other voters. Many different styles of music are featured below, including dance, classic rock, pop, and more.
