Aquarius /Let The Sunshine In- Hair (my fav songs)

|It's April 28th! On this day in 1968, the ground-breaking Broadway musical 'Hair' premiered at the Biltmore Theatre in New York City and ran for 1,729 performances, closing on July 1, 1972. This song 'Aquarius / Let the Sunshine In' still gives me the chills, including the climactic scene in the movie version directed by Milos Forman. Just heartbreaking. The song was written by James Rado and Gerome Ragni (lyrics), and Galt MacDermot (music).|
The biggest hit recording of this song was by The 5th Dimension; their version was #1 for 6 weeks in 1969, and at the 1970 Grammy Awards it won the Grammy Award for Record of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance by a Group.
