Forever Frantic

I had a screwy idea, Holy Week in Crime Jazz. After all, classical composers have been describing & commenting upon the events for centuries. What if the events took place in an American city circa 1960, which existed on TV mostly in black & white? The imperfectly Christ-like character is common enough in films. Decided it would seem  sacrilegious for those who would most appreciate it. Considered this number for Palm Sunday, Jesus as the Celebrity-of-the-Week, himself cool but being pressed by adoring mobs & chased by paparazzi.

What song would represent Easter?  Only one choice, the King of Crime Jazz themes,  "Peter Gunn."
