just revealed the song he and Gwen Stefani
will play for their first dance at their wedding, and it sounds like it could have come straight out of a John Hughes film.
This week, the country singer appeared virtually on Jimmy Fallon
's "The Tonight Show
" and revealed some wedding-related details to his fellow "The Voice" co-host.
When Fallon inquired about the couple's first song, Shelton joked, "I think it's called the 'Wedding March.'"
“Not that song, not the procession,” Fallon said quickly before jumping in with his own vision of the party. “No, no. I want at the reception, you come out of a fog machine... you know, it’s like, ‘Here is Mr. and Mrs. Blake Shelton!... And now time for the couple’s first dance,’ and then what do we hear?”
Shelton revealed that the song he and Stefani chose is "If You Leave" by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, which is from the soundtrack to the film "Pretty in Pink
Fans of the 1986 film starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy, and Jon Cryer will recall
the song that played during the final few emotional minutes:
Fallon was initially taken aback by Shelton and Stefani's song choice, saying, "That's not true at all."
“I swear, I have it right here,” Shelton said as he held up his phone to show Fallon that he had the song pulled up.
“[Gwen and I] both love the song, and we're both '80s fans, so why not?” he explained.
Anyone else getting teary-eyed? We can only hope the wedding includes a handmade prom
gown, a friend named Duckie, and a lot of hairspray.
Shelton and Stefani announced their engagement to fans in October 2020, after five years of dating. The couple met while co-hosting "The Voice" in 2014, and began dating the following year.
