I got an early birthday present today…the widescreen 1973 version DVD of Jesus Christ Superstar. I *love* this movie. Probably because my Mom really loved the soundtrack when I was a kid, so I feel asleep to it frequently…it was a big soundtrack to my childhood. Once, before I knew that nuns had no sense of humor, I tried out for my 4th grade talent show singing “I don’t know how to love him” from this soundtrack. Needless to say, I didn’t get into the show. heh. In high school I auditioned for the role of Judas for the roadshow version…but the director said that a woman couldn’t play the role…and I sing second alto to tenor, so I couldn’t do the Mary role, which is first soprano.
I’ve skipped around the DVD a couple of times to play my fave songs, and now I’m just running it from the beginning. Man, I’m so tickled. Whoo hoo!
