"John Wayne Gacy, Jr." Music Video

This music video is complete with old footage of safety videos for children, images of clowns, and photographs of John Wayne Gacy himself – a little disconcerting to say the least.

Sufjan Stevens performing "John Wayne Gacy, Jr."

Great video of Sufjan performing the song live and on radio station KCRW. This live version contains an especially beautiful outro.

Sufjan playing "For the Widows in Paradise, For the Fatherless in Ypsilanti"

An utterly gorgeous video of Sufjan playing this song from his album Michigan. It seems fitting that he is performing this at a farm.

NPR segment for Sufjan Stevens song, "The Lord God Bird"

Sufjan was asked by NPR to compose a song about the town of Brinkley, Arkansas, where a bird that was thought to be extinct was rediscovered. This is an interesting segment that gives a good glimpse of how Sufjan writes his music.
