The end of this track is used in the end of Peter Kay’s charity single for Children In Need UK 2009.

The One Day Like This Songfacts reports that this won the award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically at the 2009 Ivor Novello awards. It was a double whammy for Elbow at the ceremony as another of their songs, “Grounds for Divorce,” won the gong for Best Contemporary Song.

Elbow performed “One Day Like This” at the London 2012 Olympics Closing Ceremony, which saw the track re-enter the UK singles charts to peak at No.4 in Aug 2012. The band also composed and produced the BBC Olympics Theme featuring the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and the Olympic Choir.
