Chicago ♦ Sufjan Stevens
Any song that can inspire this cynical 40 year old crank into walking shirtless into the pitch black night and gazing heavenward, arms outstretched, soaking in the pouring rain and having a really good cry, just because we all need a really good cry sometimes you know, has achieved… something.

The catharsis on demand that is the single Chicago is off the 2nd album in Stevens ridiculously ambitious 50 States project, in which he intends to write an album for every state in the nation. Stevens has recently backed away from such a promise after a year in South Dakota left him with crippled with writers block.

With Chicago, he gave us what feels like the Act 2 closer for a rock musical yet to be written. Shit, if Green Day can have a Broadway musical, Theatre lovers certainly deserve Stevens to join composers Leonard Bernstein, Andrew Lloyd Weber & Billy Jo Armstrong. My advice to SS: abandon the 50 states project and turn your attention to writing the next great American musical. Because if it is one thing the world needs more than shirtless 40-year-old men crying in the rain it is a great American musicals!!!!

Cuz America sure has made a lot of mistakes.

We’ve made a lot of mistakes.
We’ve made a lot of mistakes.
We’ve made a lot of mistakes.
We’ve made a lot of mistakes.
We’ve made a lot of mistakes.

And with catharsis, I’m told, comes healing.
