|Best Of Sufjan|
Just missed the cut: The Upper Peninsula, Heirloom, rrNow that I'm Older, To rBe Alone With You
The Mistress Witch From Mcclure (Or, The Mind That Knows Itself)
Casimir Pulaski Day
Sad and beautiful.
|3||Sleeping Bear, Sault Saint Marie|
|4||For The Widows In Paradise, For The Fatherless In Ypsilanti|
I have called you children, I have called you son
What is there to answer if I'm the only one?
Morning comes in Paradise, morning comes in light
Still I must obey, still I must invite
If there's anything to say, if there's anything to do
If there's any other way, I'll do anything for you
When I first heard this song I thought I was having a revelation or something,
when compared to Sufjan's others songs I found out that the level of
and beautiful lyrics found in Chicago was normal.
|7||Decatur, Or, Round Of Applause For Your Stepmother!|
One of my all time favorite Sufjan lines: "...Stephen A. Douglas was a great
But Abraham Lincoln was the great emancipator..."
I don't even know why.
|8||Vito's Ordination Song|
This song could have really been one of Sufjan's greatest achievements, but it
dragged along in certain parts (like when his supporting singers take over).
|10||Concerning The UFO Sighting Near Highland, Illinois|
That flute is captivating.
