My first ever swag!!!
I am a swag-virgin no longer. Our dear Dr. Monkey has sent me my first-ever piece of swag and it's a doozy! Thank you so very much Dr. Monkey.
He sent me the Jesus Christ Superstar DVD. He and my readers must have picked up on the fact that I just love this movie and it's music.
In the 1970's, my mother brought home the Broadway soundtrack on vinyl. We moaned and groaned about the "church music" she had purchased. But then we listened and we were hooked on the hard driving bass and screeching vocals. Very soon after, my sisters and I had memorized every single note and lyric. Unbeknownst to each other, we were each putting on the entire show in the living room, playing every part, when we had that rare hour alone. Now we sing along together with abandon.
I know Melinda June also shares a love of this movie. The dancing is worth every minute. If you've never seen it, what in the WORLD are you waiting for? You don't have to be a Christian to love this interpretation. I think it's time for a sing-along-JC-Superstar night at my house.
THANKS DR. MONKEY!
