The Birthday Playlist: #20 What a Wonderful World
This song is dedicated to Beth K.
"What a Wonderful World" is performed by the inimitable Louis Armstrong. The song was written by Bob Thiele and George David Weiss.
"The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night" ---- how lovely! Many years ago, I remember reading a picture book for children that was based on the lyrics to this song. I long for the place of this song's simple beauty -- and oh, the way that Mr. Armstrong sings it!!!
