The difference between this A-side and the "Out Of The Blue" album version is that the 5 seconds of the sound of the tuning radio at the beginning is missing. Pretty minor difference, but it does seem to turn up on a lot of compilations. NB. The US 7" is a much shorter edit lacking the orchestral coda.
The difference between the B-side and the "Face The Music" version is that it's missing approx. 55 seconds of the orchestral intro. All the female backing vocals are missing and the song fades early. It appears to be the version of the song before the overdubs at Record Plant Studios in New York City.
