Sweet Music - 3 Super-Romantic Cover Songs For Your First Dance
Sometimes, original really is best. Other times? A work of art - whether that's a piece of music, a movie script or a novel - is reinterpreted through another's lens with wonderful, almost earth-shattering results! In the case of music, all too frequently cover versions make something totally and utterly different of the original. Take Tori Amos's version of Smells Like Teen Spirit: haunting and almost unrecognizable!
For your first dance, making sure your song is original isn't always the number one priority. Instead, you just want the best possible version for you. Here are a few suggestions!
Lennon and Maisy Stella - The Lumineers' Ho Hey
For a cute-as-a-button, upbeat first dance song, Lennon & Maisy's Ho Hey cover can't be beaten. The duo - who are 14 and 10, respectively - rose to prominence in ABC's Nashville, and their YouTube channel is full of great songs and really adorable sister-sister moments!
Ryan Adams - Oasis's Wonderwall
"I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now," croons Ryan Adams, in what is, arguably, the world's most beautiful cover (of Oasis's 1995 classic). In Liam Gallagher's distinctive rasp, it's an upbeat, singalong tune - while Adams brings the romance to a song whose lyrics are all about love.
Ingrid Michaelson - Elvis Presley's Can't Help Falling in Love
There are certain songs guaranteed to bring a tear to the eye of even the most hardened wedding-goer, and Ingrid Michaelson's cover of the Elvis Priestley song, Can't Help Falling in Love, is up there with the best of them. Perfect for the day the two of you start your lives together!
