“Magic Man” is a song by the American rock band Heart. The single was released in Canada in June 1975, and in America in 1976 as the second single from the band’s debut album Dreamboat Annie. Written by Ann and Nancy Wilson, the song is sung from the viewpoint of a young girl who is being seduced by an older man (referred to as a Magic Man), much to the chagrin of her mother, who calls and begs the girl to come home.
In an interview, Ann Wilson revealed the “Magic Man” was her then boyfriend, band manager Michael Fisher, and part of the song was an autobiographical tale of the beginnings of their relationship.
“Magic Man” became Heart’s first Top 10 hit in the United States, peaking at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The song also featured notable Minimoog synthesizer usage.
