Magic In The Air

Badly Drawn Boy

Love is contagious,
When it’s alright.
Love is contagious,
When it’s alright.
Love is alright.

These simple lines had to be cut from the album version of Magic in the Air by Badly Drawn Boy on his Mercury winning (and one which I personally think he’s never bettered) album, Hour of Bewilderbeast.

When I first got the album, these extra lyrics were printed in the booklet and confused me completely. Was there a hidden verse I wasn’t hearing? Apparently, they were seen as ‘taken’ from another song by hip-hop artist Taja Seville and thus later pressings of the album had an instrumental break in place of these lyrics.

Strange, but here’s the original with end lyrics intact. Not much of a difference, but it does sort of add a more poignant ending to a beautiful song.

MP3 Expired [Buy Hour of Bewilderbeast] (less than a fiver! bargain!)
