8. "Everything's All Right" Jesus Christ Superstar
Biblical allegory notwithstanding, "Everything's All Right" pretty much violates my rule for this list in that it's an extended musical sequence for three principals and a chorus — an essential chunk of the libretto of Jesus Christ Superstar, but not really a song that can function out of context. Still the main section (the "everything's all right" section) attaches itself tightly to a commonplace phrase and coins a hook you're not likely to forget. And just as Mary sings it to comfort Jesus, out of context the song is still comforting — a modern lullaby with rhythm.
