Sufjan Stevens - "John Wayne Gacy, Jr."

"Music Video using educational films from the 50s and anonymous family footage. Dir: Claire Carré." In honor of the upcoming Halloween, here's a haunting song. It's from Sufjan Stevens' 2005 album Illinois, which is extremely varied and creative (and the rest isn't as dark as this song).

For an excellent response to this song -- and a pointed critique of Sufjan's perceived closeted self-loathing -- check out "Not Everyone, Not You" by my buddy Soren Andrew and The Staves.
