Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Musicals) for Thursday, January 7, 2021 (Season 37, Game 74):
4 songs from this 1968 musical made the Billboard Top 10, including one with an astrological theme that was No. 1 for 6 weeks
(correct response beneath the contestants)
We may have lost Alex, but the show must go on. Alex wouldn’t want it any other way. Please, let’s remember him over this final week of banked episodes, and then afford him the same respect to his successors that we afforded Alex when he replaced Art Fleming in 1984. Alex’s last episode airs Friday, January 8, 2021; Ken Jennings’ first episode as guest host airs on January 11. Please also remember that no permanent replacement has been named as of yet and that we will be seeing multiple guest hosts before the end of the season, including Ken Jennings and Katie Couric.
Today’s episode was originally scheduled to air on December 24; it was moved back two weeks in order to avoid having Alex’s final episode air on a date with significant pre-emptions (the show on December 25 was pre-empted significantly by the NBA on both the East and West Coasts.)

PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to abide by physical distancing guidelines and when you are not able to do so, properly wear a mask. Ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical is a famous late-1960s musical about the counterculture of that era; set in New York City, it details a group of politically active hippies living their pacifist bohemian lifestyle and fighting against Vietnam conscription.
The four songs from the musical to chart inside the Billboard Top 10 were Three Dog Night’s version of “Easy to Be Hard” (No. 4), Oliver’s “Good Morning Starshine” (No. 3), The Cowsills’ “Hair” (No. 2), and The 5th Dimension’s “Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In”, which went to No. 1 for six weeks and won the Grammy for Record of the Year.
