but never [...] heard any of the music
Really?

Are you sure you've never (The Age of) Aquarius, which got to number 11 in the UK, or Good Morning Starshine, which got to number 6 in the UK. Both have been performed by lots of popular artists (at the time and since).

^^ Not to mention 'I Got Life', that (a version of) was used a few years ago for the muller yoghurt advert...

The title song was featured as background music advertising a men's hair replacement service for a time. The first time I saw the movie I was quite bewildered when the television announcer didn't cut in and start his sales pitch.

Well, that makes at least 6, which is better than I feared. Chances are you've heard some of the music, Your Honor, and not recognized it for what it was...3 of the songs below.

Acquarius/Let the Sunshine In (more than likely, I'm guessing)

Good Morning Starshine (less likely)


Edit: Ooops, caught by the dreaded "more posts lurking" trap once again. Apologies for redundancy!
