Music Monday – A Kind of Magic by Queen

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme created and hosted by Drew@TheTattooedBookGeek as an opportunity to share a favourite music video.

I saw the Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody at the cinema recently and thought it was brilliant. The film only showcases the group’s music up to their Live Aid performance in 1985, missing out on this great track from 1986. I had the A Kind of Magic album on cassette and remember playing it over and over again in my car back in the 80s. Just like all Queen tracks this still sounds great today.

It’s a kind of magic
It’s a kind of magic
A kind of magic – no way

[Verse 1]
One dream, one soul, one prize
One goal, one golden glance of what should be
It’s a kind of magic
One shaft of light that shows the way
No mortal man can win this day
It’s a kind of magic
The bell that rings inside your mind
Is challenging the doors of time
It’s a kind of magic
The waiting seems eternity
The day will dawn of sanity
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Is this a kind of magic?
It’s a kind of magic
There can be only one
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be done
This flame that burns inside of me
I’m hearing secret harmonies
It’s a kind of magic
The bell that rings inside your mind
Is challenging the doors of time

[Chorus]
It’s a kind of magic
It’s a kind of magic

[Verse 2]
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be, will soon be, will soon be done
This is (this is) a kind (a kind) of magic (yeah)
There can be only one one one one
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be done – done

[Chorus]
Magic, it’s a kind of magic
It’s a kind of magic
Magic magic magic (magic)
Ha ha ha haa, it’s magic
Ha haa
Yeah yeah
Wooh
