Martin Gore explained in the May 2003 issue of D-Side magazine (translated from French):

"If it weren't for some composers, I could never have learnt to write any of the songs that I composed. John Lennon is one of the best examples of that. I love the sensitivity that he has transmitted through his music and that is what I am trying to do too. There are probably other songs by John Lennon that I could have chosen [for Counterfeit²] but I particularly like the sensitivity of this song."

Gore continued in the April 2003 issue of Rolling Stone France (translated from French):

"I feel like I'm going to get a lot of trouble with this cover. Going electronic with Lennon was a bit of a sacrilege, and when you cover Lennon, everyone has a say. It was one of the most complicated songs to record. We worked hard on it. We had to find the right tone."

Gore touched on the versatility of the song in an interview for Alerte magazine: "I could reduce 'Oh My Love' to a fraction of the original chords and it was still the song."
