JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR

March 2012 at Musical Cyberspace is all about songs with people’s names in the title.

One of the most disturbing parts of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Jesus Christ Superstar, “Judas’ Death” documents Judas’ descent into a suicidal mania following an epiphany of what he has done in betraying Jesus. Featuring reprises of “Damned for All Time”, “Blood Money” and “I Don’t Know How to Tell Him”, the song builds into a frenzy of rock guitars and riffs until Judas hangs himself. After a brief moment of silence, the chorus intones his name profoundly and we are left to experience the outcome of the pact that has been sealed. Chilling stuff.
