The song's most famous version was recorded by Oleta Adams in 1990, reaching number 4 in the UK [ [http://www.chartstats.com/songinfo.php?id=18463 Song record, Chartstats.com] ] and number 5 in the USFact|date=June 2008. Others to have covered the song include Paul Anka, Jennifer Rush. Q feat Tracey Ackerman and Justin Guarini. A humorous cover, which featured comedy sound effects after each method of transport mentioned, was performed by fictional singer Michelle Coffee in the Peter Kay series Phoenix Nights.

The Beautiful South's album Gaze included a song with the same title and, partially, similar lyrics - but reversed the theme, with Paul Heaton protesting his unwillingness to travel any distance at all for his lover. (Sample lyric: "You can get here by helicopter"/"I can barely make Blackpool sands").
