Okkervil River: The President's Dead

 
A strange and compelling dream of a song, delivered with breathless uneasiness by Will Scheff, Okkervil River's masterful singer and songwriter. A supporter of an unnamed president pours out his stunned feelings upon hearing of the assassination; the song's inherent emotional (not to mention political) complexities are underscored by the way Scheff's torrent of words overspill the container of the simple but affecting melody. Unusual and memorable.
