My Favorite Music & Lyrics: Jesus Christ, Superstar

31 Aug

This could be filed under movies, plays, soundtracks, operas, live performances, etc, but it all comes down to music and lyrics. Regardless of what you believe, the story of Jesus’ betrayal by Judas is a powerful one. Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Weber take that power seriously and match it an amazing score.

Could We Start Again, Please is one of my all time favorite songs, filled with longing and resignation, while Simon’s Zealots- “You get the power, you get the glory” but with no mention of the kingdom- really highlights the difference between the religious and the political aspects.
