Oldfield covered the tune for the final track of his Man on the Rocks
album. He explained to HMV.com
: "You know, I just heard that song by complete accident actually, but I sometimes find that, if I like a song, I want to get involved with it and I just decided to make my own version of it."
"It wasn't originally going to be on the album, we'd settled on ten tracks, but Stephen (Lipson, co-producer) liked what I'd done with it," he added. "I changed some of the lyrics to make it better represent everyday life, as opposed to being a song of worship that belongs in a church."
