When I first heard this song, lo, so many years ago, I was absolutely blown away. It was first recorded by Brian Ferry‘s group Roxy Music, and that was the version I was looking for to play for you today. Having never heard of Jane Birkin, when I found this version I was hesitant. Then I listened.
This version is shorter and less manic, but I feel it still has the impact, and the lyrics, if you dare to listen, are amazing.
Take a listen to In Every Dream Home a Heartache performed by Brian Ferry and Jane Birkin.
