A cover of this song was recorded by Audio Adrenaline, with the interpretation of "my love" referring to God's love. This may be consistent with the composer's intent: In the liner notes of Townshend's Gold (Remaster) CD, he refers to this song as "Jesus sings." It was also covered by M. Ward (for the 2005 Starbucks compilation album, Sweetheart 2005: Love Songs), and by Townshend's own band The Who. Sherie Rene Scott covered the song on her 2001 album ...Men I've Had. A cover of this song was also recorded by Michael Cavanaugh.
Steve Carell and Dane Cook are credited with a cover version featured in the 2007 film Dan in Real Life. This version was arranged by Sondre Lerche, who also recorded a cover for the soundtrack of the film.
In July 2012, the Honda Motor Company used this song in their latest TV commercial advertisement campaign.
