I heard this one on Friday Night Lights and when they replaced it on the home DVD I was incredibly disappointed (but not totally surprised). I love both the original and this version for completely different reasons, and yet it all boils down to the rainy-day melancholy you can feel in both of them. Massive Attack achieves it with the ambient background, low-frequency tracks, and that awesome ticking-heart drumbeat. Jose Gonzalez manages it with a guitar and echo. And the voices on both perfectly suit the mood.
