Cover - Book of Love - Peter Gabriel

This is an instrumental cover of The Book of Love by Peter Gabriel - I think this originally appeared at the end of a movie starring J Lo and Richard Gere called Shall We Dance Recorded for a friends wedding for the bride to walk down the aisle to. Hope its enjoyed by all

Very nice. I love this song, and you have done it well.

You might be interested to know that Peter Gabriel's version is also a cover. The original is by The Magnetic Fields. Actually, your cover has a feel more like The Magnetic Fields original than Peter Gabriel's version.

Oh I do remember seeing something about that when I was researching the original music... thanks!

If you haven't seen them before, you'll be delighted to hear saulgoodman's version of the version posted here by sleepy pete. All between the family. I think this song might now be in a tie with "In An Aeroplane Over the Sea" and "you are my sunshine" as MefiMusic's most covered songs.

Nicely done, Admira. A loving cover. One of my favourite songs, and one of the most coverable. (In fact, it was a cover of this - that I've never been able to track down since I heard it on the CBC - that turned me on to Stephen Merritt in the first place.)
