Birthday is The Association's fourth album. Despite the ostensibly psychedelic cover, the album was even lighter on psychedelic influences than their first three, with "The Time it is Today" being the sole representative of conventional psychedelic rock. Most of the album, including the two hit singles, "Everything That Touches You" (which hit number 10 in the charts) and "Time For Livin'" (which reached number 39) is in the easy-listening symphonic pop vein.

Birthday is The Association's fourth album. This was the last LP by the group that spawned Top 40 hits.

Birthday is a strong record. Vocally, the intricate harmonies shine, and there is a lyrical depth on some songs that challenge the Association's reputation as a mere pop group. Granted, there are some light moments, such as the opening cut, "Come On In" (though the vocals do stand out on this cut).

Birthday Morning Lyrics. Birthday Morning (Jim Yester). Night has cried Her dewdrops in the grass The dark has passed And now it's morning A birthday morning. Now the dawn is waking In her hands Awaiting plans Of ribs and apples To find the love way This happy birthday. Got the feel of sunrise In her hair God unwinds her halo To the stairway To the moon Just for this morning A birthday morning. Now the dreams Are dancing candlelight That end the night To bring her day dreams And show the love way This happy birthday.
