Even the non-religiously inclined have to admit, the Jesus Christ Superstar soundtrack is pretty catchy. The rock opera really changed the game in terms of appropriate material for Broadway. Instead of drawing from works of literature or dated mythology, Jesus Christ Superstar tapped directly into the Judeo-Christian cultural bank and made a show of literal Biblical proportions. Much like Milton deconstructed the story of Adam and Eve in Paradise Lost, Jesus Christ Superstar creators put their own spin on the Bible. With a sympathetic Judas and a down to earth Jesus, who wouldn't be curious to give this musical a viewing? At a Broadway singalong, what Jesus Christ Superstar songs would grace your playlist? Here, you'll find all the Jesus Christ Superstar songs ranked by singability.
