Jesus Christ Superstar

It's Easter Sunday. I am not a religious person however I bow at the altar of popular culture. I bring you Jesus Christ Superstar, one of the finest musicals by Andrew Lloyd Webber and the wonderful Tim Rice. When I was a youngster, Easter Sunday was often spent at my mum's cousin's family who lived in Kent. It may have only happened once but I distinctly remember watching JCS and being stunned and amazed at its genius. Did a film sum up the 70s as beautifully as this one? The costumes are amazing. And I loved the bus with the kids in Coca Cola t-shirts.

Here are my favourite songs.

King Herod's Song:


I Don't Know How To Love Him:

Everything's Alright:

I could listen to these songs all day long. Say what you like about Andrew Lloyd Webber but he knows how to write a catchy tune. For me, it's all about the finale. Check out the white fringing! And the wigs! Fantastic.

Happy Easter.


  1. That is too funny! I am watching my JCS dvd (yes, I am THAT cool!) right now!
    I love all the songs but my faves are Geshsemane and This Jesus Must Die
