    I’m sorry, but no list of Witch songs is complete without Betty Lavette singing Witchcraft In The Air.

  2. Geoff The Postman April 18, 2013 at 2:30 am

    … or She’s My Witch by Kip Tyler

  3. Scott Creney April 18, 2013 at 4:10 am

    A quick tour of my computer pulled up these forgottens:

    Beat Happening – ‘Bewitched’
    Guided by Voices – ‘They are Not Witches’
    Wedding Present – ‘Bewitched’
    Luv Machine – ‘Witches Wand’

    And in the interest of gender equality:

    Albert Ayler – ‘The Wizard’

  4. Everett True April 18, 2013 at 9:33 am

    thanks for those Scott. I was racking my brains trying to remember the Beat Happening one… I left off songs about Wizards deliberately though as otherwise we would have been here all night as well, and anyhow this is NOT the Season of the Wizard.

    Geoff, good call – but again, I left aside songs about Witchcraft as being not strictly directly about the subject in hand.

  5. Geoff The Postman April 18, 2013 at 9:40 am

    “I’m cooking up a magic brew, just to put a spell on you”
    This song is clearly being sung by an actual witch. How much more witchy can you get?

  6. Harrold April 18, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    Bloc Party?

  7. stevie August 19, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    Time for a Wizard list?
