4:24 Elliott Smith – Jealous Guy (Lennon, Live 1998)

I was feeling insecure
You might not love me anymore
I was shivering inside

This is very familiar ground to anyone even only slightly acquainted with pop music. Besides Julia probably my fave song by John Lennon. The acoustic cover version by Elliott Smith is even more intimate than the original. Smith’s subdued way of singing while articulating each word very clearly gives it an extra pound of weight which then vanishes into thin air due to the feathery whistle solo.
