Songfacts®:

  • Magic! took their name from this song, which also acts as the title track of their debut album. Frontman Nasri Atweh explained to Spin magazine: "It was one of the first songs we wrote, in the first two weeks of songwriting when we first came together. And it felt kind of magical, the connection between us. That is the connection of music for us, it's magical."
  • The exclamation point in the band's name came from Nasri's producer and sonwriting partner, Adam Messinger. The frontman told Spin: "He was like, 'You guys should do something else to the word 'Magic' and he sarcastically drew an exclamation. We were like, 'Eh, looks good to us.' We just rolled with it."
