"Aquarius / Let The Sunshine In" is a medley of two songs written for the 1967 musical Hair. The lyrics of this song were based on the astrological belief that the world would soon be entering the 'Age Of Aquarius', an age of love, light, and humanity, unlike the current 'Age Of Pisces'. The exact circumstances for the change are 'when the moon is in the seventh house, and Jupiter aligns with Mars'. This change was presumed to occur at the end of the 20th century. However, astrologers differ extremely widely as to when. Their proposed dates range from 2062 to 2680. "Aquarius / Let The Sunshine In" climbed to no.1 in the United States and Canada, no.2 in Germany, and no.3 in Australia. The recording won both the Grammy Award 1970 for Record of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance by a Group.
