Videos of "The Lakes of Canada" on YouTube

In this year's first YouTube report you'll find Heyroro's fan version of "Happy, The End". The project was created at a New York Film Academy digital filmmaking course in London 2003 . Secondly, one of two MTV's 120 Minute interviews uploaded by Postingoldtapes. And lastly, there are two more live covers of "The Lakes of Canada" by Unusuality and Mgjohnsonstudios. My guess is that the Sufjan Stevens cover continues to be quite popular with the YouTube crowd. What do you think? Leave a comment and be sure to click the images below for the video links.
