The 7" single was released as the "Special Single Mix", which includes an alternate intro, this version appears as a B-side on the 1994 CD single "The Red Shoes".
The UK & US 12" EPs also include an additional non-LP track: an extended version of "The Big Sky" called the "Meteorological Mix". The song is about remembering some of the simple pleasures enjoyed as children that most no longer find the time for, such as spending the afternoon looking at the sky, watching the clouds take on shapes.
The B-Side is a song called "Not This Time" and it's about a woman who declares her independence from her possessive, domineering, abusive lover.
