Blake Shelton just discovered the song he and Gwen Stefani will participate in for their initial dance at their wedding ceremony, and it came straight out of a John Hughes movie.
The nation singer appeared practically on Jimmy Fallon’s “The Tonight Show” this week and divulged some insider secrets about his upcoming nuptials to his fellow “The Voice” co-host.
When Fallon requested Shelton what the couple’s to start with music would be, Shelton jokingly replied, “I imagine it is referred to as the ‘Wedding March.’”
“Not that music, not the procession,” Fallon said swiftly, in advance of jumping in with his personal eyesight of the celebration. “No, no. I want at the reception, you come out of a fog device … you know, it is like, ‘Here is Mr. and Mrs. Blake Shelton! … And now time for the couple’s first dance.’ And then, what do we listen to?”
Shelton shared that the tune he and Stefani chose is none other than “If You Leave” by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, introducing that it’s from the “Pretty in Pink” soundtrack.
Admirers of the legendary 1986 movie starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer will remember the tune enjoying in the course of the past few psychological minutes:
Fallon originally expressed disbelief at Shelton and Stefani’s song variety, expressing, “That’s not real at all.”
Shelton held up his cellular phone to confirm that he had the track pulled up, telling Fallon, “I swear, I have it appropriate here.”
“[Gwen and I] the two adore the song. We’re both fans of the ’80s. Why not?” he mentioned.
Anybody else suddenly feeling misty-eyed? We can only hope the wedding is also equipped with a handmade prom costume, a buddy named Duckie and a complete hell of a large amount of hairspray.
After five many years of dating, Shelton and Stefani announced to admirers again in Oct 2020 that they’d be tying the knot. The pair met when co-hosting “The Voice” in 2014 and started off relationship the next yr.
