Whilst the original versions of classic wedding songs, recorded by the artists that made those songs famous, will add a certain style to your wedding reception, there are quite a number of beautifully updated & modern interpretations of some of those classics songs, sung by today’s most popular artists, that can give a refreshing lift to your wedding reception. The Wedding Song Remake series of blog posts, over the next little while, will feature some of these remakes to inspire your selection and provide an alternative option for your wedding.

“Can’t Help Falling In Love” is a very popular song for weddings. The two most common versions that couples use for their special day are; the original, which was recorded by Elvis Presley and the 1993 reggae remake by UB40. Whilst many artists have recorded this song over the years, two versions which really stand out for me, and are absolutely perfect for a first dance at a wedding, are those by Ingrid Michaelson and The Eels respectively. Take a listen and feel the emotion in these renditions – beautiful!!

Can’t Help Falling In Love

Wise men say only fools rush in
but I can’t help falling in love with you
Shall I stay
would it be a sin
If I can’t help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand, take my whole life too
for I can’t help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand, take my whole life too
for I can’t help falling in love with you
for I can’t help falling in love with you
