"Strange Magic" as written by and Jeff Lynne....
You're sailing softly through the sun
In a broken stone age dawn
You fly so high

I get a strange magic
Oh, what a strange magic
Oh, it's a strange magic
Got a strange magic
Got a strange magic

You're walking meadows in my mind
Making waves across my time
Oh no, oh no

I get a strange magic
Oh, what a strange magic
Oh, it's a strange magic
Got a strange magic
Got a strange magic

Oh, I'm never gonna be the same again
Now I've seen the way it's got to end
Sweet dream, sweet dream

Strange magic
Oh, what a strange magic
Oh, it's a strange magic
Got a strange magic
Got a strange magic

It's magic, it's magic, it's magic
Strange magic
Oh, what a strange magic
Oh, it's a strange magic
Got a strange magic
Strange magic
Oh, it's a strange magic
Oh, it's a strange magic

Got a strange magic
Strange magic
Oh, what a strange magic
Oh, it's a strange magic

Got a strange magic
Strange magic
You know I got a strange magic
Yeah I got a strange magic
Strange magic

    General CommentAwesome song - really simple for me, it's that feeling you get when you first fall in love. We've all had it, it disappears of course - and we all yearn for it.

    General Commentahhh I love ELO and LOVE this song. When I heard it in the prom scene of The Virgin Suicides I just thought "wow this is the perfect song for this!". It's mysterious and so beautiful GAH I just adore it. "walking meadows in my mind" - it's like she takes up all his thoughts, she's walking through them constantly... and magic is a great way to describe love...

    General Commentits like when you cant sleep and your hands get clammy and your armpits sweat, your heart beats fast and you can hear your pulse in your ears and you cant sleep and eating makes you wanna puke cause you cant get him out of your head!! "You're walking meadows in my mind"

    General CommentThis song is mesmerizing! I remember listening to it and just feeling myself swept away thinking about high school love. A beautiful song!

    General Commentimprobable but interesting Beatles connection: 1970 Beatles' annual Christmas record to their fan club was (understandably) recorded seperately. John just turned on a tape recorder & strolled around the Queen's Gardens with Yoko and chatted.

    Yoko: the air is so crisp and all...it's like a strange magic invading the processes of our thinking...

    Very improbable, but I'd also wager Jeff collected all those Christmas records...
