Lunch Break: Elvis Costello and George Jones, “Stranger in the House”

This is an absolutely great song, and this is a killer version (even if the video is crap). Early. George Jones doesn’t look like he’s about to croak off.

Costello does look like he has mumps, which he apparently did have. Which makes his fantastic vocals here even more fantastic.

But Jones is the trick. That guy can sing. And this song is the answer. A great one.
