Every month or so a new song hits me and I have to listen to it constantly.  Right now, that song is "Blackmagic" by Jose James. 
Where to begin with what makes this song so wonderful?  The slow beat and the great piano just slightly in the background would be a good place to start.  James has a voice smooth and sweet like caramel.  And the lyrics are dark and seductive.  There's something about repeating the line "in the darkness" that turns my mood to drawing shades and quietly closing the door behind me.
