A Movie Called Hair!

Hair the MovieI am not too much of a commercial movie buff, if I was it could have probably done this blog some good in the sense we could have watched a movie every other week and written a stupid review about how good or bad it was, get some traffic from the search engines for the millions of people who want to read about it, but lets put that aside for now.

Last weekend a couple of friends were over and they had not watched one of my favorite movies, Hair. The movie is based on the 1968 broadway musical, Hair and was released in 1979. The main story line is about a Vietnam draftee who decides to see a couple of places in America before he goes to war. The movie is anti-war, pro-freedom, talks about drugs, sex, some very good powerful music and dance.

The first time I watched hair, the magnificent synchronized dancing, visuals and a fascinating story line captivated me. But now after watching Hair for the second time I realized a couple of things that passed me by because of the above factors, the lyrics of some of the songs in the movie are extremely powerful.Let me start of with, “Easy to Be Hard”, at this point of time in the movie that really seems so contradictory to the characters they are playing.

How can people be so heartless
How can people be so cruel
Easy to be hard
Easy to be cold

How can people have no feelings
How can they ignore their friends
Easy to be proud
Easy to say no

And especially people
Who care about strangers
Who care about evil
And social injustice
Do you only
Care about the bleeding crowd?
How about a needing friend?
I need a friend

How can people be so heartless
You know I’m hung up on you
Easy to give in
Easy to help out

The next song is one of my personal favorites, its called “Walking in Space

Doors locked (doors locked)
Blinds pulled (blinds pulled)
Lights low (lights low)
Flames high (flames high)

My body (my body)
My body

My body (my body)
My body

My body
Is walking in space
My soul is in orbit
With God face to face

Floating, flipping
Flying, tripping

Tripping from Pottsville to Mainline
Tripping from Mainline to Moonville

(Tripping from “Pot”sville to Starlight
Tripping from Starlight to Moonville)

On a rocket to
The Fourth Dimension
Total self awareness
The intention

Hair does have a very interesting storyline if you think its just a musical. Although the story is similar, but has quite a few differences from the broadway musical. The movie will make you laugh and the end is rather depressing. But on in all you really ned to watch hair, heres one of the dancing videos for you at the start of the movie.

You can also buy the movie if you like.
