The version available on the Paranoid Android CD1 and the US Airbag EP is considered the original, and the remix is available on the No Surprises/Running From Demons EP. The latter has clearer production values and a slightly louder guitar at the beginning; Jonny plays a different ending on the guitar. Both versions open with both Phil and Ed on drums. 'Pearly*' made it onto the band's live set on the latter half of the OK Computer tour.
Part of the performance of 'Pearly*' from january 18th 1998 in Tokyo can be seen in Meeting People Is Easy:
