An annual tradition for my wife and I (her father began it when they were children) is to play, very loudly the soundtrack from Jesus Christ Superstar. I am always moved to tears at many moments and filled with energy and joy at others. But Herod’s Song is just a riot. I have never seen the movie in full, but thanks to YouTube I can now see this ragtime ode in all its 70’s splendor.
So, you are the Christ, you’re the great Jesus Christ.
Prove to me that you’re no fool; walk across my swimming pool.
What is your favorite line or song from JCSS?
