“Magic” is a song by The Cars from their fifth studio album, Heartbeat City, released in 1984. It was released as a single and reached No. 12 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 on the Billboard Top Tracks chart. The track was written by Ric Ocasek and produced by Robert “Mutt” Lange and The Cars.
The music video for “Magic” is set at a pool party and features Ric Ocasek walking on top of the surface of the swimming pool as various party guests gather to marvel at him. Towards the end of the video, some of the guests attempt to reach Ocasek by stepping onto the pool’s surface, but only end up plunging into the water while Ocasek remains standing (and dry).
