“The Town That Still Believes in Magic”

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019

Last month, Scott Guberman and I got together and wrote a song, “The Town That Still Believes in Magic.” We recorded it on March 16, and finished the mix yesterday.

The Dead to Me podcast premiered the track in this week’s episode, “Zen of the Dead” (And I was interviewed in last week’s episode).

And here is the finished song, uncut.

Scott Guberman: piano, organ, vocals; David Gans: guitar, vocals; Robin Sylvester, bass; Greg Anton, drums. Recorded by Jeremy Goody at Megasonic Sound, Oakland, March 16, 2019.

We spent $935 making this recording; we’re offering it on a “pay what you want” basis (including free!) – we’d love to recover that money so we can invest it in another session!

In the town that still believes in magic
Children play and laughter fills the air
It’s a trip beyond imagination
A lovely place to have your soul repaired

In the town that still believes in magic
Music is the language of our peace
Every day is cause for celebration
Harmony, perspective, and release

Celebrate the ties that bind
Leave your fear and dread behind, and rise
You will see it and believe it
It’s revealed to you when you arrive

In the town that still believes in magic
People still buy records in the store
The concert hall is filled with people listening
You don’t find that too often anymore
You don’t find that too often anymore
You don’t find that too often anymore
You don’t find that too often anymore
