British singer Maria Lawson revealed on her 2008 autobiography Life Starts Now that she recorded a version of the song in 1996 which was scheduled to be her debut solo single, produced by XL Records. This version also featured British rapper, 'Dark Man' who at the time was signed to Polydor Records. After much delay, the track was never released. However, the song might be featured on Maria's forthcoming 2009 album Emotional Rollercoaster.
The demo however sounds like the others, and since Barry sings it in falsetto throughout he had probably not yet decided to make it a duet, (By contrast parts of "What Kind of Fool" are natural voice.) It was said to have been the last song submitted for the album.
