it don't get much better than Sufjan Stevens sitting on a fence wearing a hat and playing a banjo, does it? what a great song.
there is an interesting article that Sufjan wrote last year called 'what's in a name?' where he talks about his parents letting him choose a different name, and the subjects he used to write songs about when he was first starting out.
It's a really funny and sweet article, I wish he wrote more; and he even gives you a link to 'Sofia's song' which may or may not, be about Sofia Coppola....
