Hostility Much?

Seems like everyone is a little on edge around here lately. Or maybe I've just been looking at too many user lists and their respective comments. Regardless, here is Michigan ranked.
1Sufjan Stevens
Romulus

Yeah it's probably everyone's favorite song off of this album, but for a damn good reason. Hauntingly simplistic lyrics and beautiful instrumentation make this a sure winner.
2Vito's Ordination Song

This one just slowly builds into a really incredible song. The acoustic version is awesome, as well.
3For the Widows in Paradise, for the Fatherless in Ypsilanti

I love the banjo part in this song. It really sets the mood well.
4Holland
5Oh Detroit, Lift Up Your Weary Head! (Rebuild! Restore! Reconsider!)

This song has a really sick 9/8 groove.
6Flint (For the Unemployed and Underpaid)
7The Upper Peninsula
8Say Yes! To M!ch!gan!

I really dig the cascading piano in this song.
9Oh God Where Are You Now? (In Pickerel Lake? Pigeon? Marquette? Mackinaw?)

This song would be one of my favorites if it was like 5 minutes shorter.
10Sleeping Bear, Sault Ste. Marie
11All Good Naysayers, Speak Up! Or Forever Hold Your Peace!

I like the bouncing 5/4 groove but this track doesn't really do anything for me.
12They Also Mourn Who Do Not Wear Black (For the Homeless in Muskegon)

Groove is a little too similar to Naysayers and the song isn't nearly as good.
13Redford (For Yia-Yia and Pappou)

Best of the instrumentals.
14Tahquamenon Falls
15Alanson, Crooked River

This really wasn't needed.
