John Darnielle = God

A few weeks ago in a thread on the Mountain Goats message board, some one was asking about an older, obscure song (shocking, I know).

The part that actually IS shocking is that this prompted John Darnielle (who frequently reads and posts there), to try to remember the old song, and subsequently record a new version and post it on the thread. Seriously, is it possible to be any more connected and dedicated to your fans?

So here is the song, and of course, it is amazing.

Counting Song for Bitter Children
