    Hello -
    Wondering if our experts can help with a puzzlement. I'm trying to thing of as many songs as possible that feature "magical words." I've come up with "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo," "Higitus Figitus," and "Substitutiary Locomotion." All of these are Disney songs; I'm also interested in songs that aren't from Disney works; perhaps written by the Shermans, or others. Any songs with magical words... I'm really drawing a blank here!

    Any help most appreciated!

    You forgot a big one! "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious".

    Also, "Zip-a-dee-doo-dah"

    And, there's the made-up words (not necissarily magic ones) "Chim Chim Cher-ee", "Fortuosity", "Flitterin'", "Oo-De-Lally", "Brazzle Dazzle Day"...there are probably more, but those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

    "Abra-cadabra" by the Steve Miller Band (and more recently covered by Sugar Ray for some Sabrina, the Teenage Witch CD a few years back (which is an ABC property, so it's quasi-Disney).

    By the way, could a Heffalump or Woozle be considered magical? ???

    There is a cool song from the 1970s called "Hocus Pocus" by a group called "Focus"

    Wow, I haven't heard that song in awhile (Hocus Pocus by Focus-say that three times fast). They could've used the yodeling in that song for "HOTR." ;D


    And although perhaps it does not have a magical connotation, I always wondered what "Minnie's Yoo Hoo" really referred to? ;)

    A couple that occurred to me:

    Fee Fi Fo Fum from Mickey and the Beanstalk

    and from the non-Disney world:

    Witch Doctor - David Seville
    and
    Chick-A-Boom - Daddy Dewdrop

    Perhaps you're right, Bill. Maybe I was just reading more into it than there really is. ::)

    Thanks, everyone -- it looks like there really aren't very many songs with magical words! I'm looking for those songs that cause something to happen - "spell songs," if you will. I've come up with loads of songs with nonsense words, like "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" and "Fortuosity" etc. But not many of the "magical" variety!
