The Age of Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In

This medley from the off-Broadway rock musical "Hair", was #1 on the charts in 1969 for several weeks. It is by the group "The 5th Dimension". In the Billboard list
of top hits of the entire 60's decade, this song came in at #7.

It came out just after I turned 18 and I remember it as a song of independence, freedom, love and happiness. It still brings up those feelings everytime I hear it.

Bethie, I remember when the Hippie Movement was in full swing and this song seems like the National Anthem for it.....Freedom, Hope, Love, Awesome music.....I went to see the play "Hair" in Columbus, OH in 1969.....I LOVED the song "Hair" by the Cowsills. That was one of probably only three plays that I have ever seen, but I remember how hip and vibrant it seemed and the music was out of this world! Thanks for sharing it again....Leslie Henson Hardman, Orient, OH
