Sufjan Stevens – Come On! Feel The Illinoise! (2005)

The title track from Sufjan‘s 2005 masterpiece (to give the full track title: “Come On! Feel The Illinoise! (The World’s Columbian Exposition / Carl Sandburg Visits Me In A Dream)“) is like a microcosm of the album, showcasing his precocious song-writing and arranging talents in all their virtuosity. It doesn’t stick to one time signature, of course, but the first two minutes or so are joyously orchestrated 5/4 before the song settles into 4/4 for its remaining sections.
