The musical theme used in “To France” was also used on the first track on side two of the Discovery album, “Talk About Your Life”. It references Mary, Queen of Scots, in its chorus. The B-sides for the single are the non-album tracks “In the Pool” and “Bones”. The B-sides later reappeared on the reissue of the “Moonlight Shadow” single in 1993.
The music video that appears on the Elements – The Best of Mike Oldfield video for “To France” is a mock-live performance of the song. Oldfield plays a Fender Stratocaster in the video.
