So these eight songs listed below have one thing in common, they all have a little supernatural flair to them. These popular songs deal with bewitching seductresses, vampires, superstitions, and to even werewolves! So take a look at the list, and also don't forget to listen to the songs!
1. "Black Magic Woman"-Carlos Santana
I've got a black magic woman
Got me so blind I can't see
That she's a black magic woman
She's tryin' to make a devil out of me (MetroLyrics)
While a song that was originally a Fleetwood Mac single, Santana remade it a few years after, and since then it has been a popular song of his. The song's supernatural theme is exactly like its title tell us, it's about a tantalizing woman that has a spell on her man. It's quite a sensual ballad with a little magic flair!
Woo hoo, witchy woman
See how high she flies
Woo hoo, witchy woman
She got the moon in her eyes (Song Lyrics)
The Eagles gave us another song about a bewitching woman. Don Henley explains about the song on Eagles Online Central. He talked about reading a book about Zelda Fitzgerald, and how that kind of fit into the song.
Very superstitious, writing's on the wall
Very superstitious, ladders bout' to fall
Thirteen month old baby broke the lookin' glass
Seven years of bad luck, the good things in your past (MetroLyrics)
Stevie Wonder's "Superstition," deals with some old superstitions hence the name. The lyrics and the song is perfect for any Halloween party!
Mortal terror reigned
Sickness now then horrible death
Only Lucy knew the truth
And at her window
I think this Blue Oyster Cult song just tells it all, on what supernatural flair they were giving off. They were inspired by the great silent German picture, "Nosferatu: A Symphony of Terror."
Well, I ain't evil, I'm just good lookin'
Start a little fire and baby, start cookin'
I'm a hungry man but I don't want pizza
I'll blow down your house and then I'm gonna eat ya (MetroLyrics)
Alice Cooper was good at bringing the supernatural into his music. He is quite creative and this song is just one of the many examples of his love for horror. It's a strange Frankenstein song that is a mix of hunger and a little passion.
He's the hairy, hairy gent, who ran amok in Kent
Lately he's been overheard in Mayfair
You better stay away from him
He'll rip your lungs out Jim
Huh, I'd like to meet his tailor (MetroLyrics)
Warren Zevon no doubt created one of the most popular songs about werewolves! The lyrics just say it all, it's really a fun but strange kind of song. Will say "Werewolves of London," is that kind of song that is quite catchy!
That old black magic has me in it's spell,
That old black magic that you weave so well
Those icy fingers up and down my spine,
The same old witchcraft when your eyes meet mine (MetroLyrics)
The song was released in the 40s and many have covered it, but one of my personal favorites is Frank Sinatra.. "That Old Black Magic," is another bewitching song that has some black magic flair to its lyrics.
The Rolling Stones showed a little occult side to their music with "Sympathy for the Devil." According to NME in an article about "20 Things You Didn't About 'Sympathy For The Devil," Jagger claims to have taken the inspiration for the idea of the song from Satan’s perspective because of the French writer Charles Baudelaire. While many liked the song, it did have its controversy, which just made the Stones even more popular.
So those were eight songs that give us a little taste of the supernatural. Happy Listening!
