fanmixes; eight ~ i'll watch the world tear us apart

The Bible; Jesus/Judas/Mary

Made for waywardmixes round 9: angst


About: The inspiration for this mix came from watching the Stratford Shakespeare Festival's 2011 production of Jesus Christ Superstar (which actually turned into the 2012 Broadway revival version because it was just that epic) featuring Josh Young as Judas, Paul Nolan as Jesus and Chilina Kennedy as Mary Magdalene. The production leaned really heavily on the threesome angle. I mean, I think the original script leans on it quite a bit, but this production just emphasized it that bit further.

The show is the story of Jesus in his last days, focusing particularly on Judas and Mary's parts in his life. It shows the reasons for Judas' betrayal and how it came out of a place of love rather than anything else. It follows the relationship between the three of them among other things and their importance to each other. And of course, given the story a fair number of us are familiar with, it ends in death and angst.

Dear Fellow Traveler | Sea Wolf
you spoke my language / and touched my limbs
it wasn't difficult / to pull me from myself again
and in our travels  / we found our roads
you held it like a mirror / showing me the life I chose

(Judas ↔ Jesus)
The Dress Looks Nice On You | Sufjan Stevens
i can see a lot of life in you
i can see a lot of bright in you
and I think the dress looks nice on you
i can see a lot of life in you

(Jesus → Mary)
Lay Down Your Lonesome Burden
| Daniel Martin Moore


(Mary → Jesus)

Heaven On Their Minds | Josh Young
and all the good you've done / will soon get swept away
you've begun to matter more / than the things you say
i remember when this whole thing began
no talk of god then, we called you a man
and believe me, my admiration for you hasn't died

(Judas → Jesus)
All The Way Down | Glen Hansard
you have broken me all the way down / down upon my knees
and you have broken me all the way down
you'll be the last, you'll see
some fight you gave, when i pushed you away from me

(Jesus → Judas)
Haunt | Bastille
and thoughts come to mind / that our short little lives
haven't left the path that they will tread
i'll come back to haunt you / memories will taunt you
and i will try to love you /  it's not like I'm above you

(Judas  Jesus Mary)

Reminder | Mumford & Sons
so i watched the world tear us apart
a stoic mind and a bleeding heart
you never see my bleeding heart

(Judas → Mary + Jesus)
Speaking a Dead Language | Joy Williams
oh, i wonder /  when did it all stop making sense?
i don't understand /  i remember we were so sure, so innocent
oh, but that was then / can we ever go back again?

(Mary Judas Jesus)
Where I Stood | Missy Higgins
i don't know what i've done / or if i like what i've begun
there were sounds in my head / little voices whispering
that i should go and this should end / oh and i found myself listening

cause she will love you more than i could
she who dares to stand where i stood

Jesus + Mary)

Forgiveness | Sarah McLachlan
loving lying enemy / i have seen your face before
never thought again i’d see / didn’t want to anymore

and you ask for forgiveness / you’re asking too much
i have sheltered my heart in a place you can’t touch

(Jesus + Mary → Judas)
The Wolves (Act I and II) | Bon Iver
someday my pain, someday my pain / will mark you
harness your blame, harness your blame / and walk through

(Jesus  Judas Mary)

Nineteen | Tegan & Sara
i felt you in my legs / before i even met you
and when i laid beside you / for the first time i told you
i feel you in my heart / and i don't even know you
now we're saying bye, bye, bye

(MaryJesus + Judas)
Cold Is The Night | The Oh Hello's
many are the days i've wanted to cease
lay myself down and find some relief
heavy is the head that gets no sleep
we carry our lives around in our memories

take this burden away from me
and bury it before it buries me
