Armenia’s Aram MP3 has given us another Christmas present: a new song called “Magic”. As with his earlier songs like “Just Go On”, he retains a bit of James Brown flair and a respect for 1970s disco. But as a whole this is definitely different. He opens with scatting, giving this number a stylish Old World feel, and the bee bop doo wop continues at various points in the song. It’s upbeat and happy, while at the same time giving you that loungey-after-hours feeling.

Many fans will love this, but it’s not my cup of tea. It isn’t fun waiting nearly half a minute for the song to begin, and it lacks the oomph that “Not Alone” had. Lyrically, it’s no better: the song is saturated with typical weather and magic-related similes.

Regardless, we are glad to see him continue to make music after Eurovision and look forward to his next offering!

“Magic” – Aram MP3 Lyrics

You know the spark in your eyes
Betrays your thoughts again
You do your best not to smile
You weren’t good at that even than

You wanna hear me say that to you
But I really want to hear that from you
Maybe we’re not good at words
But let me show you what really works

This is my magic for you
Know I loved you than
And still I do
This is my magic for you
Know I loved you than
And still I do

We had some days with rain
And dark clouds feeling the scene
We loved and fought again and again
Just because we’re crazy we are insane

Nevermind how long it has been
You’d better let me feel what burns you within
And at the point we start lacking words
I will show what it is really works

This is my magic for you
Know I loved you than
And still I do
This is my magic for you
Know I loved you than
And still I do

Don’t know if you’ve counted
The time we departed
The broken hearts of ours
Felt like for 10 years
Or even ages
But it has been two hours

This is my magic for you
Know I loved you than
And still I do
This is my magic for you
Know I loved you than
And still I do

I like this! Still think ‘If I Tried’ is his best song by a long mile, with Not Alone close behind. Obvs loved his cover of Jealousy because what non-Azeri didn’t?!!

Eurgh, talking of Azeris, xue to Armenia hate…

Everyone else in Europe loves Armenia though which is the main thing :D:D:D
