Sufjan (ultimate gig)

Sufjan Stevens is coming to Melbourne.

And we are going to see him.


My ultimate Sufjan gig would include the following songs (regardless of whether they ‘go’ together)

  • From the Mouth of Gabriel – All Delighted People
  • John Wayne Gacy Jnr. – Come On Feel the Illinoise
  • The Predatory Wasp of the Palisaides is out to get us! – Come On Feel the Illinoise
  • Casimir Pulaski Day – Come On Feel the Illinoise
  • Chicago – Come On Feel the Illinoise
  • The Dress Looks Nice On You – Seven Swans
  • To Be Alone With You – Seven Swans
  • He Woke Me Up Again – Seven Swans
  • The Transfiguration – Seven Swans
  • A Good Man is Hard to Find – Seven Swans
  • Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing – Songs for Christmas
  • Sister Winter – Songs for Christmas
  • Star of Wonder – Songs for Christmas
  • Holy, Holy, Holy – Songs for Christmas
  • Futile Devices – The Age of Adz
  • No Man’s Land – The Avalanche
  • Romulus – Greetings from Michigan
  • For the Widows in Paradise, For the Fatherless in Ypsilanti – Greetings from Michigan

So… mostly all of Seven Swans (really) and although ‘A Sun Came’ is not bad at all and A Winner Needs A Wand is pretty decent it’s not the best of the best. I haven’t listened to The Age of Adz quite enough yet to fully make up my mind.

I really think that Sister Winter and He Woke Me Up Again come in on top of my list.

What’s on yours?
