    This is my favorite song ever. I'm not sure why, but this song puts me in a good mood and the melody and harmony are just so fucking great. Everyone loves the 'Stephen a Douglas/Abraham Lincoln' line but for me, the way he sings 'we go riding on the abolition grain train' gives me chills every time. Favorite song ever on one of my favorite albums ever. Sufjan is the Paul Simon of our time.

    I agree, sweet vocal harmonies. I love to sing and play along with the little lead guitar part in the vocal breaks. So simple but perfect. Great song :)

    Matt Morgan's vocals were recorded in Redhook, Brooklyn, minutes before the firemen arrived, wielding their axes, in order to address the problem of the gas leak.

    We saw the lion and the kangeroo take her down to the river where they caught a wild alligator. So good! One of my favorites!
