Recorded in early september 1995 during a session which also produced 'Lucky'.. The original version, on the Street Spirit (Fade Out) CD1, is the most guitar driven of the versions released. The band has never articulated the song's meaning.

The next version released was the Nellee Hooper remix on the William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet soundtrack, which differs from the original in that it includes various backing sounds and far less guitar, giving it a mysterious feel.

The most unusual version is the Black Dog remix, in which the instrumental part and the vocals are played at different tempos than they are on the original.
'Talk Show Host' was not performed during the first half of touring for The King of Limbs, but made two appearances during the second half (#220 and #221):
