Track of the day: The Lovin’ Spoonful ‘Do You Believe In Magic’
Back in 1965, Greenwich Village four-piece the Lovin’ Spoonful released their debut. Just over two minutes long, the 45 is one of pop music’s most perfect realisations; a glorious paean to the unyielding power of great music (whatever its stripe) that posited one of life’s great questions.

Something from the Heavenly archives:
“Those Acoustically Heavenly nights were really where I learnt how to perform live, sat on a bar stool in front of a bunch of mates in the upstairs room of a pub. We were playing covers as well as our own stuff and we’d play one after the other, like DJs going one-on one-off. So many of the faces from the Sunday Social showed up there, week in, week out. Even though the sound was as different as could be, the spirit was the same…” – Beth Orton
