Your Simply Amazing Stuck in My Head Song of the Day

Well what do you know? Just like I "assumed" on Wednesday today's stuck in my head song of the day is Flesh Failures/Let The Sunshine In from the American Tribal Love-Rock Musical, Hair. It is a truly tremendous song and is my favorite from the show. I was originally inspired to have this song in my head when Godspell came on and I noticied that along with musicals like Jesus Christ Superstar, there seemed to be some sort of Jesus Chic or an urge and yearning for a figure who might resolve the turmoil and lead everyone again to the brightness of a future. And I would like to believe the summed up the despair yet still hope of the time and the prayer for a better world. As I think do the lyrics to this song

We starve-look
At one another
Short of breath
Walking proudly in our winter coats
Wearing smells from laboratories
Facing a dying nation
Of moving paper fantasy
Listening for the new told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes

Inside something there is a rush of
Who knows what stands in front of
Our lives
I fashion my future on films in space
Tells me secretly

Manchester England England
Manchester England England
Eyes look your last
Across the Atlantic Sea
Arms take your last
And I'm a genius genius
And lips oh you the
doors of breath
I believe in God
Seal with a righteous kiss
And I believe that God believes in Claude
Seal with a righteous kiss
That's me, that's me, that's me
The rest is silence
The rest is silence
The rest is silence

Our space songs on a spider web sitar
Life is around you and in you
Answer for Timothy Leary, dearie

Let the sunshine
Let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Damn hippies ;)
But I didn''t have such grand thoughts in my head when I thought the song would be perfect for tonight. I was merely thinking that I needed some sunshine because I plan to spend a lot of time this weekend at the beach reading Book 7 ( yeah I still haven't started it. But I think I've proved my point that I am not soo addicted that I coudln't live without knowing for a few extra hours, not to mention days. I'm pretty sure I win) and getting a nice tan with a Nalgene full of mojito yumminess. I'll enjoy and I hope you enjoy this song.
Here it is in the 1979 movie version

Let the sunshine in my friend, let the sunshine in.

[UPDATE: I almost forgot my Simpsons theme/goal for today so here's a poster for the movie including every character from the show, almost like they are in a field singing songs about sunshine.

There. Done and Done. And I mean Done.]
