Hypnotized’ by Fleetwood Mac

It’s the same kind of story
That seems to come down from long ago
Two friends having coffee together
When something flies by their window
It might be out on that lawn
Which is wide, at least half of a playing field
Because there’s no explaining what your imagination
Can make you see and feel

Seems like a dream
(They) got me hypnotized

One of Fleetwood Mac’s lesser hits, off the “Mystery to Me” album, ‘Hypnotized’ (written by Bob Welch) is a low-key, slow-tempo song, almost introspective in a way, but the almost dreamy aspect of the song lends itself well to the exposition of the subject of hypnosis.

Hypnotized’ by Shanadoo

Hypnotized’ by European J‑rock band Shanadoo incorporates a number of hypnotic images, especially spirals (sometimes in the eyes of the singers.) It also uses a number of English words, including “hypnotized” in the lyrics.

History: ‘Hypnotized’ was the group’s first original hit, even though its actual performance on the pop charts was less than expected: before this, they covered tracks from the German dance band E‑Rotic. Despite their Japanese origins they are a German and Japanese act, all of which makes the use of the English word “hypnotized” that much more interesting.

Commentary: It would be nice to know what they are singing about, but unfortunately I have not been able to find an English translation for the Japanese lyrics.


  • In this video, each of the singers are wearing the stereotypical Japanese school uniform look of white shirt, tie, skirt, high white socks and black shoes which is considered a fetish costume in Japan.
