Pilot – Magic

pilot

I guess everybody’s got some songs they’re stuck with. Me, I’m chained to this one. As a young boy, growing up in a suburb town in Denmark, we had a drug addicted neighbor who used to invite me over, I was 10-11 years old, to listen to some music. It was Ten Years After, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, stuff like that. But it was also this new Pilot record and he would play it loud, very loud, shouting “it’s only half the possible volume” (in danish: “det er kun halv styrke”) My childish ears were exploding and numb but I loved it and kept comming back. Now I just keep comming back to this stupid pop song…
