! In general
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: There are arguments to be made for, depending on the production/performers, "Alas for You", "Save the People", and "Day By Day", but the one song ''everyone'' agrees is amazing is the "Crucifixion/Long Live God" finale.
** What, no love for "Bless The Lord" or "We Beseech Thee"?
* EarWorm: Most of the songs are immensely singable, but the crown has to go to:
-->''"Day by day, day by day/Oh, dear Lord, three things I pray/To see thee more clearly, love thee more dearly/Follow thee more nearly day by day..."''
** I'd beg to differ:
--->''"Some men are born to live at ease/Doing what they please/Richer than the bees are in honey"...''
*** Not to mention
----> ''"We can build a beautiful city/Yes we can..."''
* GeniusBonus: For those not in the know, the song "Day by Day" is based on a prayer spoken by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_of_Chichester St. Richard of Chichester]]:
-->Thanks be to Thee, my Lord Jesus Christ\\
For all the benefits Thou hast given me,\\
For all the pains and insults Thou hast borne for me.\\
O most merciful Redeemer, friend and brother,\\
May I know Thee more clearly,\\
Love Thee more dearly,\\
Follow Thee more nearly.
* OlderThanTheyThink: Many of the lyrics that aren't from Literature/TheBible are from old hymns and prayerbooks.

!For the film
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Jeffrey Mylett (Plays the recorder, wears the derby hat) has a surprisingly sizable fanbase. Unfortunately, he died of AIDS in 1986.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The movie features a lot of dancing in front of and on top of the World Trade Center.
** In his first column after 9/11 sex columnist Creator/DanSavage said:
-->''All I can think about is the cast of Godspell on top of the World Trade Center and singing "All for the Best"!''
* RetroactiveRecognition:
** Victor Garber is immensely recognizable nowadays from ''Series/{{Alias}}'', ''Film/{{Titanic}}'', and ''Film/{{Argo}}''.
** Of all the cast, Lynne Thigpen - in her film debut - has had the most success, earning several awards.
** Sonia Manzano of the original Broadway production went on to a little show called ''Series/SesameStreet''.
