What A Wonderful World (2/31)

31 Days of Promise, Day 2

What A Wonderful World, Louis Armstrong

Why this song? I think that even the pre-heart-growth Grinch couldn’t make it through this song without getting a lump in the throat. It speaks to us at a basic, universal level that’s almost as deep as Louis’s voice. The world – our world – is filled to overflowing with wonder. This song reminds us of that. And the spoken intro at the beginning of this version is a reminder that it’s all still there.
