The Dubs Could This Be Magic

The Dubs Could This Be Magic

Doo Wop Classics

The Dubs formed in New York City in the mid-1950s from two vocal groups, which were The Five Wings and The Scale-Tones. The Dubs are best known for their songs  “Could This Be Magic,” “Don’t Ask Me To Be Lonely,” and “Chapel of Dreams.” Richard Blandon, a group member, and Hiram Johnson wrote “Could This Be Magic.” In 1957, the song peaked at #23 on the Billboard Hot 100, and has become a doo wop classic. It is a fine example of great doo wop vocal harmonies and romantic themes. The group had many personnel changes over time, but the personnel for this single were Richard Blandon, Cleveland Still, Billy Carlisle, James Miller, and Tommy Grate.

Here are the lyrics to “Could This Be Magic” by The Dubs:

“Could this be magic
My dear
My heart’s all aglow
Could this be magic
Loving you so.
Could this be magic
My dear
Having your love
My prayers were answered
So far from above.
I thought that it would be
Just a memory
To linger my heart in pain
But to my surprise
I opened up my eyes
And I’m with you dear once again
Could this be magic
My dear
Having your love
If this is magic
Then magic is mine.
Could this be magic
Then magic is mine.”

For another song by The Dubs: “Don’t Ask Me to Be Lonely.”
