Without a hint of irony, malice, or contempt Sufjan has taken it upon himself to pen a biographical snapshot of Tonya Harding. In the most direct way possible; this is the type of song writing that Sufjan is known for. He does his research, he’s meticulous, and above all else he’s earnest in his endeavor. Both versions of the track are great (although my personal favorite is Tonya (In Eb Major) which is listed first below.
Before you skip down and listen I encourage you to read the post Sufjan wrote about the song. It can be found here http://music.sufjan.com/album/tonya-harding.
