Song Of The Day – 9/25/11

Song Of The Day – “Easy To Be Hard” by Lynn Kellogg

Most know this song recorded by Three Dog Night, but here’s the original version from the 1968 Broadway Cast recording of the musical “Hair.” This song plus the other hits from the musical including “Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In,” “Good Morning Starshine” and the title song were all written by Galt MacDermot, Gerome Ragni and James Rado.  I’ve been listening to this record since I was seven years old…way before I knew the meaning of “Sodomy,” “Hashish,” “Colored Spade,” “Walking In Space” and the numerous other titillating-for-their-time songs in this musical. It is indeed part of my musical DNA.
