SotD: Sufjan Stevens, “Concerning the UFO Sighting Near Highland, Illinois”

I wish this song were three-to-four times as long as it is.  The haunting piano line, the unusual time signatures, the understated vocals–it all adds up to one mesmerizing tune.  The images provided by the person who posted this to YouTube only enhance the experience.

There are several great tracks on Stevens’ Come on Feel the Illinoise–I’m suspecting others will appear in the space eventually.
