OK, this is just freakin' weird.....


My traffic tracker indicates that I had a visitor today from Seoul, South Korea, who got here by searching for the phrase "whoa it's magic, you know". This phrase appeared in the comments to the Freddie and the Dreamers thread, below, and represents about 75% of Pilot's contribution to popular culture.

The other 25% of Pilot's contribution consists of the next line to their big hit, "Magic" which made it to the Top 5 in 1975, more than 30 years ago. A search for that line ("never believe it's not so") deposited a music lover from San Antonio, Texas within two hours of the Korean gentleman.

I am so fucking totally global. Excuse me, I'm gonna go have some t-shirts made up.

    Finding out what it's all about,
    reaching up to the sky,
    don't you know you're getting me high,
    oh too high.

    I absolutely love Pilut.

  • dude, I swear, I just heard that song while watching "las Vegas" on tv (I swear, it's the first time I've watched it) and they played that song, which made me start searching for it, which led me to your site. THAT's freakin weird
