Welcome to the 60s--from Hairspray

With music by Marc Shaiman and lyrics by Scott Wittman, Welcome to the 60's is one of the most memorable songs from the Broadway musical Hairspray.  The variety of songs include 1960s-style dance, R&B, and rock and roll.  Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan wrote the accompanying book.  Both Shaiman and Wittman have won multiple awards for their work in theatre.

Originally a 1988 film by John Waters, Hairspray was turned into a Broadway musical production in 2002.  Produced by Margo Lion, the show won 8 Tony Awards, (including Best Musical),10 Drama Desk Awards and a Grammy Award in 2003.  It ran for 2,642 performances, one of the longest runs Broadway history.  The London production was nominated for a  record-setting eleven Olivier Awards.
