CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD
“…I see friends shaking hands,
saying how do you do?
They’re really saying,
I love you...”
The beauty of "What A Wonderful World" is in the simplicity of its lyrics. This has given it a timeless quality that ensures the song will resonate with future generations.
Louis Armstrong's measured and distinctive vocal adds to the track's majesty. It was first a hit in Britain, reaching #1 in 1968. That recording was re-issued 20 years later after its inclusion in the box office hit film 'Good Morning, Vietnam'.
A new version of the song,recorded by Katie Melua and Eva Cassidy, returned the song to the top of the UK charts in 2007.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
