In popular culture[edit]

In a 2006 episode of British soap opera Emmerdale, the chorus was played as characters Viv Windsor and Bob Hope rekindled after he failed to make it to their wedding due to a vasectomy reversal and was found by Viv with his ex-wife Vonda Lockhart, who was actually just giving a lift to the venue.
