Cruise, 56, picked the track after DJ Mark Ronson started to play it.
“It is a little scary because you’re in this tiny room, it was in this Italian castle in Rome and I was like, ‘I’ll rehearse a couple of cool mixes that Tom will dig and appreciate the thought’ because I know he likes hip hop,” Ronson, 43, said.
Ronson played the Top Gun theme over the drums from a hip-hop record before playing “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling.”
When he was playing that, he said “I thought would be cute and then I thought, ‘That’s completely the wrong song to be playing at a wedding.’”
Former Scientologist Leah Remini said Holmes, 40, and Cruise “lost that loving feeling” the moment they tied the knot.
“We’re like, ‘That’s an interesting song to sing to your bride,’” she joked.
Radar readers recall Cruise sang the song to Top Gun co-star Kelly McGillis in the 1986 hit.
He married Holmes in a Scientologist ceremony at 15th Century Odescalchi Castle in Bracciano, Italy on November 18, 2006 after one year of dating. Soon, they welcomed daughter Suri, whom the actor reportedly tried to raise as a Scientologist.
After six years of marriage, Holmes had had enough. The pair were last photographed together in Iceland in June 2012 and Holmes filed for divorce 10 days later.
