Louis Daniel Armstrong (1900-1971) / What a wonderful world .(Post # 516)

The greatest American Trumpet virtuoso , a band leader and vocalist whose influence on the stature of jazz internationally , was perhaps greater than that of any other musician . He was the complete entertainer .He will always be remembered for his heartwarming and loving song .” What a wonderful world.”

l see trees of green , red roses too ,
l see them bloom for me and you.
And l think to myself ,what a wonderful world.

l see skies of blue ,and clouds of white,
The bright blessed day ,the dark sacred night.
And l think to myself, what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky,
Are also on the faces of people going by .
I see friends shaking hands ,saying” how do you do”‘
They’re really saying l love you.

I hear babies crying ,l watched them grow,
They’ll learn more than l’ ll ever know.
And l think to myself ,what a wonderful world.
Yes l think to myself what a wonderful world.

    I play this song in my shop sung by Lewis Armstrong every weekend and it is one of my favorite songs. I never knew who wrote it before tonight. ~Ginene

    “What a Wonderful World” is a song written by Bob Thiele (as “George Douglas”) and George David Weiss. It was first recorded by Louis Armstrong and released as a single in 1967. Thiele and Weiss were both prominent in the music world (Thiele as a producer and Weiss as a composer/performer).[2] Armstrong’s recording was inducted in the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999.

    I remember the movie good morning vietnam by this song.

      The song always provokes a memory of that scene in Good Morning Viet Nam, an otherwise silent scene of bombing and napalm attacks during that war. To me, very moving and touches a chord of our shared humanity.
