Wiccans are lovers of nature, animals, and music. If you’re one of the witches who haven’t tried listening to pagan music, you should rush to add pagan music to your playlist so you can listen to on your car or your phone. Why? Because you should live and breathe Wicca, that’s why!
Pagan music is inspiring, calming, balancing, and powerful. If you listen to pagan songs, you can the sense that you belong to something greater than yourself!
Contrary to what you might think, pagan music is anything but boring. If you grew up listening to popular music, you’d be pleasantly surprised how they are not actually your idea of bells or chant music.

The moral of the song is that our collective and personal hardships are what makes us strong and powerful believers.

Gypsy has a wonderful voice! This song is popular among young Wiccans and babies because it is very catchy. With lyrics like this:
“Here is how to cast a spell to know what is to be
Throw a coin in a wishing well and see what you can see
Or look inside of a crystal ball with the art of divination
Listen to your inner voice, you will find the information
With magick, magick, magick
You can take your imagination.”
How could you not love it?

Christians and the Pagans, Dar Williams
This song will be well-appreciate by those who grew up under Christian teachings. If you realize you’re a witch, that doesn’t mean Christianity did not work for you. If think real card, you will realize that all religions are interconnected.

Check out the lyrics to this tearjerker:
“So the christians and the pagans sat together at the table,
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able,
And just before the meal was served, hands were held and prayers were said,
Sending hope for peace on earth to all their gods and goddesses.”

The healers and the teachers of the wisdom of the earth.”
