"Blood Money" as written by and Tim Rice Andrew Lloyd Webber....
Judas:
I don't need your blood money!

Caiaphas:
Oh that doesn't matter our expenses are good

Judas:
I don't want your blood money!

Annas:
But you might as well take it - we think that you should

Caiaphas:
Think of the things you can do with that money
Choose any charity - give to the poor
We've noted your motives - we've noted your feelings
This isn't blood money - it's a fee nothing
Fee nothing, fee nothing more

Judas:
On Thursday night you'll find him where you want him
Far from the crowds in the Garden of Gethsemane

Choir:
Well done Judas
Good old Judas

    General Commenti love this song, well the full version anyway. the musical and this song make Judas' pain far beyond that of Jesus. This and Gethsemane (i only want to say) are two of my favourite songs from musicals.

    General CommentI think at heart, Jesus Christ superstar is more about the story from Judas' view than a retelling of the crucifixion. I think that by far the best version was a movie done of this rock opera that was made in 1973, its got ecxellent symbollism as well as brilliant preformers. The man playing Judas for instance, Simon Lewis, was in my opinion the best one, and no one has been able to match him yet.

    General CommentSorry, It was Carl Anderson. Simon Lewis was the fat idiot who kept missing notes. Though i probably just dont like him because he didnt measure up to anderson when i saw JCS preformed a few years ago.
    Carl Anderson was the best judas
