“It’s Magic” is heard twice during Happy Gilmore, a 1996 comedy film starring Adam Sandler; the first time being early in the film and the second time playing during the end credits. It is also featured in the 2005 films, Herbie: Fully Loaded and The Magic Roundabout, the 2007 movie Magicians, and the fourth episode of the television series Extras. In addition, the song featured in a Pillsbury Company commercial in 2007. Additionally, an episode of Pushing Daisies was entitled “Oh Oh Oh… It’s Magic”, after the song’s memorable refrain.
The song was sampled by Girl Talk on his 2006 release Night Ripper on the track “Summer Smoke”. The song is also heavily sampled in a song titled “It’s Magic” by rap artist J.R. Writer. It was then sampled again by rapper Flo Rida in 2009.
The song is frequently misattributed to Electric Light Orchestra, perhaps in confusion with the ELO song Strange Magic.
Selena Gomez covered the song for the Wizards of Waverly Place Soundtrack. It was released as the first single on July 21, 2009. Radio Disney premiered the song on July 24.
