A cavern. In the middle, a boiling cauldron.
Thunder. Enter the three Witches
Thrice the brinded cat hath mew’d.
Thrice and once the hedge-pig whined.
Harpier cries ‘Tis time, ’tis time.
Round about the cauldron go;
In the poison’d entrails throw.
Toad, that under cold stone
Days and nights has thirty-one
Swelter’d venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i’ the charmed pot.
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble…
Donovan – “Season of the Witch”
Santana – “Black Magic Woman”
I can't believe Donovan is winning this.
In my case, it's not that I particularly like Donovan's song, but that Santana's is even worse. Perhaps because I heard it way way WAAAY too often on the radio back in the day.
Yes, this is entirely subjective. What's your point?
Oh, I'm with you — I can't hear “Black Magic Woman” without wanting to hit someone. But at least Carlos gave us the masterpiece of unintentional comedy that is Metatron. Donovan, on the other hand, simply sucks big-time.
What??? The Donovan song rules! You guys are crazy.
Boo! Donovan sucks ass! Boo!
Not one, but TWO movies borrowed their titles from this song. And how can you disparage the lyrics “beatniks out to make it rich…”?
I cannot believe you're using “Halloween III” as a defense for anything other than maybe euthanasia.
Hey, I never said they were GOOD movies.
The results aren't even in yet and i'm already crying voter fraud, i agree i've heard Black Magic Woman waaaay too many times but, it still kicks Donovan's ass! This is akin to Happy Birthday beating Beethovan's fifth symphony in a song writing contest, well maybe not that extreme, but still pretty freakin out of whack.
