Time

The theme for today’s Song Lyric Sunday is time. I immediately thought of this song, “Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In,” an old song from 1969, sung by The Fifth Dimension. It is about a the Age of Aquarius, a time of peace and love, the theme of the upcoming decade of peace and love. I thought of it for two reasons. I think we need to think of peace in this time of upheaval in the U.S. I also thought of it because it was part of the music of a time in my own life when I was trying to get past a painful event. This is one of my favorite all-time songs. Down deep, I’m still that hippie girl that loved everything about this time in America.

To Helen: I wish peace and love to you in this time in your life.

Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind’s true liberation

Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in

    I only know this one from the end credits of The 40-year-old Virgin movie. Sounds like a fun one though. I agree. We could use loads of peace.

    Great song – and I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought of the ending of the 40 Year Old Virgin!!

  4. I’ve thought about that song different times over the years. It didn’t last much past the seventies, but the “sympathy and understanding” part really crashed with the Twin Towers, when reality hit home.
