With the popularity of the movie “I, Tonya” & it being nominated for/winning Academy Awards, Tonya Harding’s life has been thrust back into the spotlight. Sufjan Stevens created a tranquil, almost lullaby-like song about the infamous figure skater. Some of the content is heavy, but the low key sound of the song makes me feel like I’m having a dream about her life story. I have it on my chilled out playlist for cloudy Mondays like this one.
*Fun Fact: Although, Sufjan's intentions making the song came from a place of love, Tonya herself was not pleased it was created (she’s never heard it!)
