Ceremony and Vow Ideas

Bridal Entrance Song - Need Help Deciding Which Version to Use

I have an outdoor wedding ceremony in a rustic-themed venue/historical museum.

I am planning to walk down to Aqualung’s “Brighter than Sunshine” original version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpDNfwIrx1M

I found this cover today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VpPyjQiT9sA&index=54

I am torn between both of them. Which one should we play?  I was invested in the original version because of his voice and because it’s the Original, but with the cover rendition, you can really hear the lyrics and piano.

Thoughts? Your selection and why?

    I really like the cover version.  You chose the song because the lyrics spoke to you, so it makes sense you want the lyrics to be clear to your congregation.

    I am so old :-(  I originally could not fathom why you would want (the song, Aqualung) to play this song at your wedding!  I love it, and it brings back my youth, to be sure, but it is definitely NOT ceremony material.

    LOL I thought the same thing at first. Saw them in concert at the Capitol Center.

    Me three. Would be an interesting wedding processional. 

    I don't know, OP. I love the original version, but the cover sounds tender and weddingy. You can't go wrong either way.
