Wedding Song Remake – Perfect by Conkarah

by

Conkarah is a Jamaican artist who is a prolific, reggae singer and songwriter whose singles and videos are staples at reggae clubs across the globe. Ed Sheeran of course has had many hits over the last few years with many songs being used extensively at weddings. “Perfect” was one such song and is still popular for weddings today.

Some time ago, Conkarah recorded a reggae cover of this song which I absolutely love and would be, dare I say it, perfect for a beach register signing or an upbeat first dance. There is also a duet version with Rosie Delmah. Check them both out below!

Wedding Song Remake – All Of Me by Ginny Blackmore & Barry Southgate

by

Kiwi artist Ginny Blackmore and fellow musician and friend, Barry Southgate deliver a stunning rendition of one of the most popular wedding songs from last year, John Legend’s, “All Of Me”. This is a great song for the register signing or for a first dance as it contains both female and male vocals – so it is as if the bride and groom are singing to each other. Accordingly, if you love the John Legend original version but wanted to put a different spin on an overly used song, this amazing cover would be just perfect! Only issue is, I was unable to find anywhere it could be purchased from. If you find somewhere, please be kind enough to leave a comment and let me know where.

All Of Me

What would I do without your smart mouth?
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
You’ve got my head spinning, no kidding, I can’t pin you down
What’s going on in that beautiful mind
I’m on your magical mystery ride
And I’m so dizzy, don’t know what hit me, but I’ll be alright

My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh oh

How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I’m around through every mood
You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you

My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh oh

Give me all of you
Cards on the table, we’re both showing hearts
Risking it all, though it’s hard

‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you

I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh oh

Wedding Song – Better Today by Coffey Anderson

by

Coffey Anderson is an American singer-songwriter and wrote the song “Better Today” for his own wedding. It is a beautiful song and would be just perfect for the register signing, recessional or a first dance. There is the original version which has a slightly country flavour and the wedding version which is the one I prefer and features a piano.

Better Today

To see your face, to hear your voice
And oh, to touch you is a dream come true
So I’m standing here, with my hand held out
Knowing that your love will never fade, I stand amazed without a doubt

And I wanna hear your voice, in the morning when I rise
I think I know I’m just a normal man, only made of sand except when you’re by my side
Will you love me, teach me, don’t leave me I pray
And when I, and I’m thinking of the times
Your hands in mine, together we will stay
You made me better today
Better than I was before
And now my heart can rest and I will search no more
You made me better today, today, today

My heart has wings
Oh you take me away
And every prayer I’ve ever prayed was answered today
So I’m standfing here, with my hand held out
Knowing that my love will never leave
My hearts on my sleeve and now I believe

And I wanna hear your voice in the morning when I rise
I think I know I’m just a normal man, only made of sand except when you’re by my side
Will you love me, teach me, don’t leave me I pray
And when I, and I’m thinking of the times
Your hands in mine, together we will stay
You made me better today
Better than I was before
And now my heart can rest and I will search no more
You made me better today

I stand proclaimed, true love is here to stay
I stand proclaimed, forever starts today
Today…
You made me better today
Than I was before
And now my heart can rest and I will search no more
Cuz you made me better today, than I was before
And now my heart can rest
And I will search no more
You made me better today
Today…
Made me better today.

Wedding Song Remake – I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) by Sleeping At Last

by

Chances are that this song and lyrics will ring a bell for most of you: “I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more.” Place the melody? It’s an incredibly popular song from the late eighties by The Proclaimers. Well, this cover by Sleeping At Last, which featured on “Grey’s Anatomy”, is so heartfelt and changes what some consider a cheesy song to one which has so much emotion and would be magical for a processional or first dance. Hope you enjoy it.

I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)

When I wake up, well I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who wakes up next to you.
And when I go out, yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who goes along with you.

And when I come home, yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s coming home to you.
And when I’m dreamin’, well I know I’m gonna dream
I’m gonna dream about the time when I’m with you.

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 1000 miles
To fall down at your door

When I’m workin’, yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s workin’ hard for you.
And when the money comes in for the work I do
I’ll pass along every cent of it to you.

And when I’m lonely, well I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s lonely without you.
And if I grow old, well I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s growing old with you.

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 1000 miles
To fall down at your door [x2]

When I wake up, well I hope I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s waking up to you.
And when I’m dreamin’, well I know I’m gonna dream
I’m gonna dream about the time I had with you.

Wedding Song Remake – You’re The One That I Want by Angus & Julia Stone

by

“You’re The One That I Want” is a well known song from the film Grease and originally sung by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. This remake by Angus & Julia Stone has been stripped back and been given a completely different treatment which gives the song a whole new feel and meaning. Perfect for a wedding ceremony, background music or even a first dance.

You’re The One That I Want

I got chills, they’re multiplying
And I’m losing control
‘Cause the power you’re supplying
It’s electrifying

You better shape up ’cause I need a man
And my heart is set on you
You better shape up, you better understand
To my heart I must be true

You’re the one that I want, ooh ooh ooh
Honey, the one that I want, ooh ooh ooh
Honey, the one that I want, ooh ooh ooh
Can’t you see, oh yes indeed, oh yes indeed

If you’re filled with affection
You’re too shy to convey
Meditate my direction
Feel your way

You better shape up ’cause I need a man
Who can keep me satisfied
You better shape up, you better prove,
That my faith is justified
That I’m sure down deep inside

You’re the one that I want, ooh ooh ooh
Honey, the one that I want, ooh ooh ooh
Honey, the one that I want, ooh ooh ooh
Can’t you see, oh yes indeed.
Oh yes indeed.
