I had my pretentious twat hat on when I decided the topic for my contest entry. That's my only defense for choosing to re-tool Jesus Christ Superstar with music more to my liking. That the lyrics don't always match 100% what's going on in the story, well, that's just to be expected.

Oh, and I've taken liberties with the track list - the musical has something like 30 songs going, and there's no way I'm making a mix like that. I wanted to include Mogwai - Like Herod instead of King Herod's Song, but at 11:39, I simply couldn't indulge myself like that.

Tellin' the world about the joy you bring
And you gave me a reason for livin'

And the plan mean nothing stays the same
