Song Background

When Love Is All Around was originally released by The Troggs, it peaked at number 5. However, when Wet Wet Wet released their cover of the love song, it got the number 1 spot on the UK singles chart and subsequently stayed there for 15 weeks. It was 2 weeks away from beating Bryan Adams’ record of longest time at the top spot with (Everything I Do) I Do It For You. Wet Wet Wet lead singer Marti Pellow insisted on the deletion of the song as he heard that people were bored of its chart domination. After its deletion, it dropped to number 2 in the charts.

Wet Wet Wet’s version of Love Is All Around was used as the soundtrack to the hit film Four Weddings and a Funeral which brought the song more commercial success. The Troggs’ version of the hit was used in the smash film Love Actually as a parody when pop star character Billy Mack, played by Bill Nighy, released it with the lyrics changed to “Christmas is all around” and “come on and let it snow” aiming to reach the Christmas number one spot. When the soundtrack to the movie was released, Christmas Is All Around appeared in the top 40 of the Billboard charts and actually managed to achieve gold record status in Australia and Mexico.

Lead singer of Wet Wet Wet, Marti Pellow, released an album in 2002 called Marti Pellow Sings the Hits of Wet Wet Wet & Smile in which he recorded his own version of the song as a solo artist. Love Is All Around writer actually used a lot of his royalists from Wet Wet Wet’s success with the song to fund alien research subjects, such as spacecraft, crop circles, alchemy and lost civilisations. He wrote a book with his findings in 2002 titled Wild Things They Don’t Tell Us.
