Thirteen Best Jesus Christ Superstar Song

Well, since this has been an obsession of mine for a while, and inspired by Darla's Thursday 13, I decided to grab my iPod and type out my 13 favorite songs from this play in order of appearance, mostly, I'm guessing:

1. Heaven on their Minds
2. Strange thing Mystifying
3. Simon Zealotes
4. Poor Jerusalem
5. Pilate's Dream
6. The Temple
7. Damned for all Time
8. The Last Supper
9. Pilate and Christ
10. King Herod's Song
11. Judas' Death
12. Trial before Pilate
13. Gethsemane

The last one was added out of place, because I had to go back in and add one at the end and I am too tired and lazy to place it in order.


  1. I'm flattered to have been an inspiration. And you're going to make me check these out! I only saw the musical once, several years ago, and my recall is foggy. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Neat! What is it about the play/musical that inspires you so?

  3. Dunno. It's good music. It's Andrew Lloyd Webber, if that means anything to you. I don't care one way or other about him, but he makes some good music. And I haven't listened to him enough to be able to hear that all of his songs are essentially the same, like so many other composers that I can think of (such as John Williams).

    It's just like crack to me, for some unknown reason.

  4. Like Darla said, a musical I've only actually seen once, so it was great to have the reminder!
