Freeeeeeeee Fallin

Just a few short tour dates ago, the Mountain Goats covered Tom Petty's "Free Fallin" (the video's sadly mislabeled)

John Darnielle - "Learning to Fly" from Joel Gillespie on Vimeo.

And while we're at it, another classic tMG cover:
Suedehead - The Mountain Goats (Morrissey cover)

Hey guys,

I recently e-mailed you asking for re-uploads of a bunch of Sufjan Stevens rarities I found in some of your olders posts. After my frenetic gotta-have-everything-he's-done weekend I found most of the stuff I was looking for in a couple of links. I'm sending them over in case you guys want to share this on your blog. The quality of all the files is quite decent. What's included is:

1. I Can’t Even Lift My Head
2. Woman at the Well
3. The First Full Moon
4. You Are The Blood
5. Opie’s Funeral Song
6. God’ll Ne’er Let You Down
7. She Is
8. The Lord God Bird (live on NPR)
9. The One I Love (live)
10. Variation on ‘Commemorative…
11. The Avalanche (original version)
12. Borderline (original version)
13. Bushwick Junkie
14. All Delighted People
15. Damascus
16. Marching Band
17. Pickerel Lake
18. Niagara Falls
19. Presidents & Magistrates
20. Wolverine
21. The Star-Spangle Banner (live)
22. The Friendly Beast
23. Adlai Stevenson (original version)
24. Free Man In Paris
25. In the Words of the Governor
26. Majesty Snowbird (live)
27. The Lakes of Canada (live on rooftop)
28. Worried Shoes (with Daniel Smith)
29. Waste of What Your Kid’s Won’t Have
30. Barn Owl, Night Killer
31. Far Physician’s Son
32. How Can the Stone Remain
33. I Went Dancing With My Sister
34. Jacob (live)
35. Many Guides
36. Say Hello (with Rosie Thomas)
37. Casimir Pulaski Day (original demo)
38. Chicago (solo banjo demo)



What I'm still looking for is the acoustic version/demo of Vito's Ordination Song from the Michigan b-sides. Do you guys have it by any chance and would be willing to post it/share it? And if you still have them, could you please re-post the covers people have done of his songs:

Indie Blockapella - Come On! Feel The Illinoise!

Indie Blockapella - Decatur, or, Round of Applause for Your Step-Mother!

David Crowder Band - O God Where Are You Now (In Pickerel Lake? Pigeon? Marquette? Mackinaw?)

Brad Mehldau - Holland (Live Sufjan Stevens cover in München, Deutschland)

If you could help me out with this I'd be so grateful. Thanks for the links I found on your site, I really appreciated them.
