“Hosanna, Hey-sanna…”

If you haven’t gotten enough “Hosannas” today, here are a couple more.

The top clip is from the 1973 movie version of “Jesus Christ, Superstar.”  The second clip is from the 2000 stage revival, which was later adapted for video.

The two make for an interesting comparison — different “Superstars” for different generations and different audiences. I suspect the director of the 2000 version saw “Rent” more times than is healthy, and it seems clear that the bad guys are all, regrettably, bald. (Judas, a symbol of ambiguity, is only balding, though).
