More Than This was the first single to be released from Avalon, the album that would eventually become Roxy Music’s biggest seller. It was not only Roxy Music’s most popular studio album but it was also their last. Though More Than This only reached #58 on the US Charts, it’s a song that’s endured. (It did much better in the UK, reaching #6.) The song was discovered by a new generation of listeners when Bill Murray sang it in Lost In Translation.
The video is simple and very much a product of its time. Ferry performs the song and then watches himself and the band performing in what appears to be a movie theater.
