Godspell Lyrics

Godspell Videos

A stirring rock/pop score by Stephen Schwartz and a strong lead performance by Victor Garber make a success of this film version of the stage hit emphasizing the religious nature of Christ (as opposed to the secular Jesus Christ Superstar). Robin Lamont's rendition of "Day by Day" was a Top 15 hit.

- William Ruhlmann, The All-Music Guide to Rock, 1995.

Bonus Review!

We beseech thee: dance, dance, dance, mismatch your socks and think '70s with this instant Bible that even atheists find fun to sing along with. The lite-rock hippie classic is often overshadowed by its Hair-ier cousin, but Stephen Schwartz's retelling of Matthew's gospel is great for high schools 'cause it's tuneful, youthful and inspired. So prepare ye the way for a heartfelt if dated recording. * * * *
