Songs that are better in the studio than live

Continuing my series of songs better in the studio than live.

Bryan Ferry's Slave to Love.
I have to say when I first heard this song ( I was watching Nine and a Half Weeks) I thought to myself this would be impossible to play well live mainly because of Phil Manzanera's magnificent playing of guitar and the many uses of it he uses in the production of the song.

Here is the studio version.

Here is a live version
