Hair

Packaging all of the ’60′s most tumultuous moments into one spectacular lock-flowing, sing-song hippie-musical trip, Hair made its debut on this day in 1967 at a midtown disco in Manhattan, eventually leading to an unprecedented 1,750 performances on Broadway proper.

Sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll, Vietnam, The Man, Big Brother, the story covered it all. But it wouldn’t be what it was without its song lineup, leading with its brass-laced psych rock kick-off, “Aquarius,” just tie-dying your conservative mind, man, from the first verse-chorus combo, championing the astrological belief that, it’s alright, the planets are gonna align in some hippie-dippie, well, listen:

When the moon is in the Seventh House

And Jupiter aligns with Mars

Then peace will guide the planets

And love will steer the stars

This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius

The Age of Aquarius

Aquarius! Aquarius!
