Notes: Also released on some 7” singles from other territories like the UK (including the promo release Vertigo 6059 206 DJ). USA and Japanese releases do not  have it for example. A rare 12” promo from United States has it aswell (Warner Bros. Records PRO-A-783). It has never been published on CD and it was released again in 1985 on the double 7” single pack Walk Of Life (Vertigo DSTR 12). This version was recorded because people at the record company considered the “original” too much clean and polished
