Louis Armstrong – What A Wonderful World
Mannequin’s thoughts: There are many “classics” that take us back to our youth. To a time when things were more innocent. If not in the world, than at least in ourselves. What A Wonderful World was going to be a great and timeless song no matter who performed it, but Louis has a truth and sincerity in his gruff tones and delivery. With a peaceful and comforting delivery, Louis tells this story as if it really were from his own heart. As if he weren’t just singing lyrics, but recalling a life rich with observation and love.
