'cause since here I'm famous and stuff my italian literature teacher told me to find three songs representing or including many characteristics of the hippy movement.

Bonus is if they're easy 'cause I also gotta play them.
Name's Luca.

In-a-gadda-da-vida (Iron Butterfly), White Rabbit (Jefferson Airplane), and People are Strange (The Doors)

Hippies? How about "If you're going, to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair...."

Or... Most of the score from "Hair".....

Songs from We're Only In It For The Money by The Mothers of Invention (1968) will give you answers, especially 'Who Needs The Peace Corps'
A poem.

"She lives on love street, lingers long on love street, she has a house and garden, I would like to see what happens. La lalala la. Lalalalaa

Also "Give Peace A Chance" "Blowing In The Wind" "White Rabbit" "Somebody To Love" and "Little Wing" come to mind.

By The Plastic Ono Band, Bob Dylan, Jefferson Airplane and Jimi Hendrix respectively.

Axis: Bold as Love - Jimi Hendrix.
'And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

'You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'

Canned Heat (Let's Work Together, Up the Country: which is like the OG Woodstock theme), The Zombies (Time of the Season), Steppenwolf (Born to be Wild, Magic Carpet Ride), Hendrix (Purple Haze, If Six Was Nine), Strawberry Alarm Clock (Incense and Peppermints), Beatles/John Lennon (I Am the Walrus, Lucy in the Sky, All You Need Is Love, Give Peace A Chance), Country Joe McDonald (The "Fish" Cheer), The Doors (Light My Fire, The End), The Byrds (Mr. Tambourine Man, Eight Miles High), early Floyd stuff (Arnold Layne, anything off their first album), the Mamas and the Papas (California Dreaming, Monday Monday), Crosby Stills & Nash (Wooden Ships, Woodstock, Love the One You're With), Cat Stevens (Peace Train), Aquarius / Hair Theme (from the musical Hair), Bob Dylan (Blowin' in the Wind, The Times They Are A Changin', This Land Is Your Land - a Woodie Guthrie cover by the way), Donovan (Wear Your Love Like Heaven, Sunshine Superman, Season of the Witch), Joan Baez (Kumbaya), perhaps some instrumentals (Santana - Jin-Go-Lo-Ba, Hendrix - Star Spangled Banner, Allman Bros. - Revival, anything by Ravi Shankar...)

So yeah, that kinda stuff

Keep in mind that a lot of these artists weren't or didn't necessarily identify as hippies (Dylan, Floyd, Hendrix) and the ideology. When it comes to hippie-ish artists who kept the campfire burning after the early 70's there's The Greatful Dead, Phish, the Magic Numbers (kinda neo Hippie-stuff)

It sort of is. That album was liked by some hippies, well that song anyways. But also a lot of the Hippies parents liked it, so not really.

Grateful Dead is the only correct answer.

Besides that try Jefferson Airplane and Buffalo Springfield. It may not be the kind of 'hippy' music you're looking for but they were pretty relevant in those days.

Cuz its old and terrible, like hippies.

Seriousness aside, this is very much what my mum and her hippy friends listened to in the late 60's/early 70's, along with the usual Hendrix, Stones, Beatles, Santana and a bunch of other 'dad rock' I don't have any affiliation with.

Steppenwolf- Born to be wild- Easy
Animals- We gotta get out of this place- Easy
Hair- From the musical
Animals- Don't bring me down- Easy
Aquarius- The 5th Dimension

Not Zappa. He was far too cynical cerebral and introverted for the Hippy movement. It was more about peace, love and understanding; or sex drugs and rock & Roll.

Grateful Dead, Phish,

Grateful Dead has lots of songs that could fit into your agenda

phish has a lot more goofy hippy jams then serious hippy jams
