Saturday Nine: I Don't Know How to Love Him (1971)

Saturday, March 26, 2016
This week's Saturday Nine:

(Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.)

  1. This song is from Jesus Christ, Superstar. Though now a beloved classic, the play was controversial when it first premiered. Can you think of something else that originally made people uncomfortable, but went on to be accepted? LGBT. I mean, it's not fully accepted everywhere yet, but I think we're getting there. I hope one day there won't be such a thing as "coming out."

  2. Jesus Christ, Superstar was originally developed as a "concept album," a collection of songs written to sequentially tell the story of The Crucifixion and Resurrection. Do you remember the first album you bought? Did you download it, listen to it on a CD player, your cassette deck, or record player? The first album I bought was No Doubt's Tragic Kingdom on cassette in 1996.

  3. When the album's songs were performed live in concert at the Pennsylvania Civic Arena, producers decided to stage it as a play and the rest, as they say, is history. Tell us about a really good idea you've had recently. I had an idea for my workplace that was implemented recently to make workflow more efficient.

  4. Jesus Christ, Superstar is a truly international phenomenon. During a revival tour that began in 2011, it's been a hit with audiences in the United States, Canada, Britain, Ireland, Brazil, Hungary, India, New Zealand, Italy, France, Mexico, Chile, Bulgaria, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Iceland, Russia, Poland, Czech Republic, Greece, Australia, The Philippines, South Africa, Panama, Colombia, Croatia, Bolivia, The Netherlands and Portugal. Which of those countries have you visited? United States, Canada, Italy, France, Mexico, and The Netherlands.

  5. Peeps are big sellers every Easter. Would you rather have yellow chicks or pink bunnies? I don't eat Peeps, but I choose pink bunnies over yellow chicks any day.

  6. Jelly beans are also popular this time of year. One theory says they were introduced in Boston during the 19th century. What else comes to mind when you think of Boston? Boston cream pie, Boston cream doughnut, Parker House rolls, Harvard, Bruins, Red Sox, Boston Tea Party, Aerosmith...

  7. We've been talking a lot about sweets this morning. The only holiday that generates more candy sales is Halloween. When do you eat more candy: Easter or Halloween? I don't eat a lot of candy in general, but I'd have to say Halloween. Though I really enjoy a Mini Egg or two.

  8. Easter lilies will adorn many churches this Sunday. What's your favourite flower? Waterlily dahlias.

  9. Easter is considered the season of rebirth. What makes you feel refreshed or rejuvenated? A good night's sleep.
