This song might not be the quintessential hippie song. However it's a song that I associate with Woodstock -- especially its laid-back rural theme. It's anthmeic in its own subtle way.

The two obvious ones for me are San Francisco and All You Need is Love. Both are spreading the hippie message overtly in a way the others are not.
Since I could only vote for one, I reluctantly chose the Beatles one because it's a little more universal. The Scott MacKenzie seems to relate particularly to the USA, although I know it was embraced by young people worldwide.For example it was No. 1 for eight weeks in a row in Melbourne. I don't think All You Need Is Love was on top for quite that long.

Donovan was known as something of a flower child in the sixties. Maybe this one could have been considered.
