Since it is almost Christmas I thought I should highlight a couple Christmas songs. Sufjan is awesome, he can sing about weird, depressing, and morbid things and make them sound lovely. For example, the 2 songs below. I love the mood and emotion that he brings with his songs. It is beautiful and sad all at once. Don't get depressed... here is my Christmas pick for this week:
"That Was The Worst Christmas Ever"
For a few years, he made a Christmas album each year for the "Songs For Christmas" collection. Check them out HERE. They are "real" carols and Christmas songs, done in Sufjan's style.
Here is a bonus song for you, non-Christmas.
"John Wayne Gacy Jr."- "Illinois"
