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

    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

    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

    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.
