Wow, I haven't heard this song in AGES until tonight's Idol. Here it is above (points up) from the 1973 movie musical version. (Which I haven't actually ever seen.)

And yes, I'm rooting for Carly and David C. No wonder they're keeping him for last!

Also new header. Josh and Foxy are back. :)

Oh man, I met the guy who played Jesus in the movie (Ted Neeley, I think?) some 20-odd years later, after a stage production of the musical (yep, he was still playing the same role). He was kind of... creepy. Creepy Jesus. *grins* But I loved that musical. And the movie's really quite good, typical of the era with the hippie vibe and all. :)

Oh wow, that would be creepy!

But yeah, that clip and the music is SO '70s! I don't think it's possible to top it!

You have to rent it!Jesus Christ Superstar is too awesome,and actually my favorite rock opera.I can even sing along to all the songs,lol.
Btw,the original 1973 movie was filmed in Israel,mostly in Dead Sea area and there is an ancient city and Beit Govrin caves,which is one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited:)

Oh,and are there new Foxy and Josh pics?
*is clueless*

Oh wow! That music still packs a punch, doesn't it? *scurries off to dig out original vinyl soundtrack*

Speaking of Jesus... If you are a fan of Desmond's lovely Henry Ian Cusick, you should check out the Gospel of John - an incredible tv movie in which HIC plays Christ. Very, very powerful performance, and, Heaven forgive me (and all the other fangirls who have watched it) possibly the most sensual movie I have ever seen. Lusting after the Lord will gain me entry into Hell, I'm sure, but it is so worth it!

Lovely new header! That pic of Josh just floored me, oh yes it did. Haven't seen much of Sawyer this season. I sure do miss the big lug!

Ooh, I didn't know he'd ever played Jesus. Too perfect!

And very glad you like the new header. Yay for new pics! Looking forward to seeing more Sawyer. Finally. I HOPE!

Love the header!!

See, I'm not too into David C. he has an affect that just rubs me the wrong way.

But I will say that him always going last lends itself to others that have left the show saying that "favorites" are treated a little bit differently.

Ahh, interesting. I didn't know you didn't like David C. So you're a David A. fan? I kind of like everyone but I do find David C. to be a cutie and I do like his voice. Brooke seems like a total sweetheart. And Jason, well, he has nice eyes? LOL.

And favoritism is never good. But then again, it is decided by the voters based on who they find attractive, I think, and not on actual vocal talent!

I like anyone that can sing well, some weeks it's David C. others it's David A. But I love love love the way David A sang that song, because in the movie, it's sung by a woman and it's faster and when you really listen to the words, it's a sad song, and he did it justice. David C can rub me the wrong way sometimes, and for me, and surprise surprise, I loved the way Gerry sang that song, David's didn't come close.

But that's just me, others really liked it, so it's not for me to say.

I swear sometimes those votes are like being in high school and it's a popularity contest.

The header - very yum!!!!! :)

As for Idol, I stopped watched after Michael John's left, my rockers always seem to get booted off early!

Thank you! It was time to rotate the boys back in!

And awww, yes, it's not a show for rockers to win, alas! But they often go on to do better than the actual winners!
