Sufjan Stevens: “Ding Dong! That Was the Worst Christmas Ever!”
In 2001, Sufjan Stevens decided to embark on a project. No, not the now famed ‘50 States Project‘ declaration Stevens made early in his career – this project entails releasing a Christmas EP each year.
And except for an off-2004, Stevens held up his promise. And in 2006, Steven’s label Asthmatic Kitty compiled those EPs into a Christmas Box Set.
This song, ‘Ding Dong! That Was the Worst Christmas Ever!‘ showcases Steven’s distinct, beautifully melancholic instrumentation and lyrics, and is a great end to the holiday week.
