43 years Spellbound!

22nd of May 2024, 00:00

On this day, 43 years ago, Siouxsie And The Banshees released the single 'Spellbound'. It was released on 22 May 1981 by record label Polydor as both 7" and 12" and was the first single from the band's fourth studio album, Juju.

The single peaked at number 22 on the UK Singles Chart in 1981 and also reached 64th position on the U.S. National Disco Action Top 80 chart.

The 12" extended version of the song appeared for the first time again on the 2006 remastered version of Juju.


Spellbound (Lyrics)

From the cradle bars
Comes a beckoning voice
It sends you spinning
You have no choice
You hear a laughter
Cracking through the walls
It sends you spinning
You have no choice
You hear laughter
Cracking through the walls
It sends you spinning
You have no choice
Following the footsteps
Of a rag doll dance
We are entranced

Spellbound

Following the footsteps
Of a rag doll dance
We are entranced

Spellbound
Spellbound
Spellbound
Spellbound
Spellbound
Spellbound
Spellbound

And don't forget
When your elders forget
To say their prayers
Take them by the legs
And throw them down the stairs
When you think
Your toys have gone berserk
It's an illusion
You cannot shirk
You hear laughter
Cracking through the walls
It sends you spinning
You have no choice
Following the footsteps
Of a rag doll dance
We are entranced

Spellbound

Following the footsteps
Of a rag doll dance
We are entranced

Spellbound
Spellbound
Spellbound
Spellbound

Spellbound
Spellbound
Spellbound
Spellbound

Following the footsteps
Of a rag doll dance
We are entranced
Following the footsteps
Of a rag doll dance
We are entranced

Entranced, entranced
Entranced, entranced
Entranced, entranced

Songwriters: Steven Severin / Susan Janet Ballion / Peter Edward Clarke / John Alexander Mcgeoch
