The song, a midtempo ballad, was released as a single which reached No. 14 in the UK, and No. 32 in the US. The song later appeared on Bowie’s greatest hits compilation Best of Bowie, appearing on all but the Australian and Japanese pressings of that album.
Metheny later noted that Bowie’s words were “profound and meaningful – and absolutely perfect for the film.”
