Presented here is Roxy Music performing “In Every Dream Home A Heartache”, an additional track not broadcast on Jonathan Ross’s final Friday Night show that aired on Friday 16 July 2010.
From the Guardian:
“Having told the audience at the final Friday Night With Jonathan Ross that he was determined not to get emotional – his exact words were “I promised Morrissey I wasn’t going to cry” – Ross did indeed manage to hold it together for the whole show. Until, that is, his final musical guests, Roxy Music, came on to perform two of their biggest hits, Virginia Plain and Love Is The Drug.
At the recording on Wednesday night, Ross sat on the edge of his desk, blissfully frugging away to this rare live performance from one of his all-time favourite bands, while David Beckham sat on the sofa smiling serenely. As Bryan Ferry signalled the climax of their performance and took a bow, Ross walked over to the stage and was about to thank the band when drummer Paul Thompson oddly started up again.
It suddenly dawned on the host on this momentous night that he was being treated to a surprise third song. They were in fact playing In Every Dream Home A Heartache, which Ross had previously explained would be his dream song choice until his wife pointed out he should get them to play “the hits” rather than an intense six-minute fanboy favourite.”
