I Want You - Fiona Apple and Elvis Costello

Some performances are so packed with raw emotion that they leave you completely breathless and feeling not just a little violated (in a good way). This is one of those performances.

I Want You was written by Elvis Costello (credited under his real name, Declan MacManus) and included on his 1986 album "Blood and Chocolate" (Elvis Costello and the Attractions) and has since become one of Costello's signature concert songs. In 2006, Fiona Apple joined Elvis Costello onstage for VH1's "Decades Rock Live" for this stunning performance. Her version of this song was subsequently released as an iTunes single, also in 2006.
