Written by Barry Manilow/Adrienne Anderson, inspired by "Prelude in C Minor" by Chopin

Notes: "Could It be Magic" was originally on Barry Manilow 1973 debut album, being released as a US single in 1975. Donna Summer later covered the song in 1976, while Take That had a UK hit with it in 1992. It was presumably the latter that inspired this new recording. The song is based on Frédéric Chopin's "Prelude in C Minor", Opus 28, Number 20.

Numerous regular Trevor Horn collaborators appear (Weidner, Dudley, Dudley, Jackman, MacMillan, Muhoberac, Pierce, da Costa). (HP, 2 Jun 06)
