Sodomy

Album: Hair Soundtrack (1967)

Songfacts®:

  • Like the rest of the songs in Hair, "Sodomy" has lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni, music by Galt MacDermot.

    Very short and sung like a hymn in spiritual style, it asks why the word sodomy and several others have the connotations they do. Performed by Woof and the Tribe, this one is probably best forgotten. >>
