Pilot and the Wizard Girl Who Dances A Lot




Over the past 9 hours I have been listening to the song "Magic" originally recorded by vintage rockers Pilot over and over and over again. You know it. It's been used in plenty of movies and commercials.
Ho, ho, ho
It's magic, you know
Never believe it's not so
It's magic, you know
Never believe, it's not so


The reason for this soar in Magic popularity is because teeny-bopper, Selena Gomez from Wizards of Waverly Place has covered the song on her show's soundtrack. And it's been getting a lot of press.

Here is the new version:

QATFYG: I want to take a poll and see what you guys like more. The original by Pilot or the remake by Selena G?
I'll start it off and vote for the....
ORIGINAL!! The remake is way too toned down. Not enough Umph!

  1. you know
    I'll go ahead and say the selena gomez version. i mean you say it's toned down....but it's a disney song. what else do you expect? they have to pretty much. it also has a lot more modern stuff in the song that pilot doesn't have. it definitely isn't bad.

    as for selena she looks good in the video. for a while she was stuck with that babyfaced little girl look. it was just too young of a look for someone who isn't 9. go her.

  3. Chalk one up for Selena!
    Well, I didn't say it was bad. By toned down I meant it lost a lot of the sensuality of the original version. The SG cover just doesn't have the same feeling as Pilot's version.

    So we're tied at one a piece. Oh the suspense.

  4. Both versions of the song have their own unique qualities. I prefer pilots version of the song overall, but I still think there is a lot of promise with Selena Gomez's version. I do like the more modern version of the song. It gives the a song a different edge. Honestly, if the new version of the song were exactly like the old version what would be the point? This new version allows for a fun spin on an old classic, which I personally find enjoyable. Also I think the use of this pilot song on the wizards soundtrack was a good idea, because it fits well with the theme of show.

  6. Pilot. Definitely. Gomez doesn't have the same passion and fire.

  7. I have to disagree with you svestie. I personally feel that there is plenty of passion and fire in the Selena Gomez version. She has done an excellent job with the remake.

  9. Are you kidding me...Pilot's version is much better! More energy and fire in the their version and the instrumentals overpower the vocals a bit too much in Selena's version. One writer said it perfectly "NOT ENOUGH UMPH!" And I thought we were comparing the song versions not on how the videos and on how Selena looks! But I give her props for choosing a great song to remake!

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to Match.com , single women are presented with
