[absolutely random]

[absolutely random]

Hm, absolutely random post. We have been having trouble with internet at our office for the last two days and since my job is directly connected to internet (websites, online business network, and e-publications), I was basically jobless. I don’t like that condition because I become lazy and can’t concentrate. Eh.

During one of the network outages, I was listening to Nightmare before Christmas soundtrack… and thought… the lyrics from Oogie Boogie Man’s song really correspond to the lyrics from Jesus Christ Superstar when Jesus is standing before Pilate and Herod.

See for yerselves.

Oogie Boogie (NBC):

Well, well, well, what have we here?
Sandy Claws huh?
Oh, I’m really scared
So you’re the one everybody’s talkin’ about, ha, ha

You’re jokin’, you’re jokin’
I can’t believe my eyes
You’re jokin’ me, you gotta be
This can’t be the right guy.
He’s ancient, he’s ugly
I don’t know which is worse.
I might just split a seam now
If I don’t die laughing first.

Pilate (JCS):

Who is this broken man?
Cluttering up my hallway
Who is this unfortunate?

GUARDS
Someone, Christ King of the Jews

PILATE
Oh so this is Jesus Christ
I am really quite surprised
You look so small
Not a king at all
We all know that you are news
But are you king
King of the Jews?

Herod (JCS):

Jesus, I am overjoyed
To meet you face to face
You’ve been getting quite a name
All around the place
Healing cripples
Raising from the dead
Now I understand you’re God
At least that’s what you’ve said

So you are the Christ
You’re the great Jesus Christ
Prove to me that you’re divine-
Change my water into wine
That’s all you need do
Then I’ll know it’s all true
C’mon King of the Jews

Like I said, this is all quite random. But considering that I love Jesus Christ Superstar rock opera and NBC, it kinda dawned on me.

Oh well. Time to go home.

  • Random is a good word – lol – 😉

    • haha, yeah, no kiddin'. I am not sure why i thought about that in the first place… i call these times "thought attacks"… this was a classic.
