Sometimes it takes a friend to remind me what is important to me. This post was inspired by a Facebook comment by JaneGS.
I have always had trouble with the Easter season, especially Good Friday. When I first saw Jesus Christ Superstar as a teeny bopper it was pretty heavy stuff. I grew to appreciate it more by listening to the music (my older sister had the album). Fast forward years later, and my son discovered the music from a High School music class. So I bought him the DVD one Easter. What followed was an Easter tradition for quite a few years that we both enjoyed.
There are so many songs I love from the 1973 production (that was the one my son preferred as well). This one must have been very difficult to perform, not only for its subject matter. I don't think anyone could do a better version of this song than Ted Neeley.
Thanks for the reminder Jane! :)
