Saturday Night Live Music: "Wrapped Around Your Finger"

Stumbled on to this one by accident, and it's brilliant. I could do without the background orchestration, but man: Rufus Wainwright deeply mines this old Police tune, bringing to life from within its lyrics and chords a glorious, smooth, mature passion and soul. And let's be honest: his falsetto is better than Sting's ever was. (Rufus, do "Roxanne" next!)
