Morning Song – What A Wonderful World

November 25, 2016

(One in a series of songs for this Thanksgiving week.)

Ask the old folks and they’ll tell you: the smooth and simple sentiments expressed—both musically and lyrically—in “What A Wonderful World” are hard-earned wisdom, barely hinting at the harsh and dreadful costs this life can impose.

If you don’t know what I mean, watch the expressions (all of them) flitting across Louis Armstrong’s face as he sings his last hit single during what would prove to be his final year on this earth. To live the life he did and be able to sing that song at the end of it…now that’s a triumph worth giving thanks for.
