“Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Sufjan Stevens
Originally by Judy Garland
During the recent performance of their Planetarium show at the Sydney Vivid Festival, Sufjan Stevens, Nico Muhly, and Bryce Dressner (The National) closed out the show with this lovely cover of the classic, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”.
If I saw this live I’d probably be dead today. I’m a super super super huge Sufjan Stevens fan—to the point that he’s slowly been creeping into number one favorite artist for the past few years; really, the only thing keeping him back is the sheer wealth of material The Mountain Goats have, so poor old Suffy can’t compare, but still, he’s coming up up up—and I still very much so want to see him live. I don’t know if I ever will, but shit I hope I do. I might cry. I’ll probably cry. He’s that good.
