    Louis Armstrong - What A Wonderful World ABC Records 1967, 1970

    3:37

    What a Wonderful World [1970 Spoken Introduction Version] along with Oliver Nelson's Orchestra is a song written by Bob Thiele (as George Douglas) and George David Weiss. It was first recorded by Louis Armstrong and released as a single in 1967. Thiele and Weiss were both prominent in the music world (Thiele as a producer and Weiss as a composer/performer). Armstrong's recording was inducted in the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999. Intended as an antidote for the increasingly racially and politically charged climate of everyday life in the United States, the song also has a hopeful, optimistic tone with regard to the future, with reference to babies being born into the world and having much to look forward to. The song was initially offered to Tony Bennett, who turned it down. Thereafter, it was offered to Louis Armstrong.

    Louis Armstrong (August 4, 1901 -- July 6, 1971), nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, was an American jazz trumpeter and singer from New Orleans, Louisiana.

    Coming to prominence in the 1920s as an inventive trumpet and cornet player, Armstrong was a foundational influence in jazz, shifting the focus of the music from collective improvisation to solo performance. With his instantly recognizable gravelly voice, Armstrong was also an influential singer, demonstrating great dexterity as an improviser, bending the lyrics and melody of a song for expressive purposes. He was also skilled at scat singing (vocalizing using sounds and syllables instead of actual lyrics).

    Renowned for his charismatic stage presence and voice almost as much as for his trumpet-playing, Armstrong's influence extends well beyond jazz music, and by the end of his career in the 1960s, he was widely regarded as a profound influence on popular music in general. Armstrong was one of the first truly popular African-American entertainers to cross over, whose skin color was secondary to his music in an America that was severely racially divided. He rarely publicly politicized his race, often to the dismay of fellow African-Americans, but took a well-publicized stand for desegregation during the Little Rock Crisis. His artistry and personality allowed him socially acceptable access to the upper echelons of American society that were highly restricted for a black man.

    Armstrong died of a heart attack in his sleep on July 6, 1971 at the age of 69, 11 months after playing a famous show at the Waldorf-Astoria's Empire Room. He was residing in Corona, Queens, New York City, at the time of his death. He was interred in Flushing Cemetery, Flushing, in Queens, New York City. His honorary pallbearers included Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Pearl Bailey, Count Basie, Harry James, Frank Sinatra, Ed Sullivan, Earl Wilson, Alan King, Johnny Carson and David Frost. Peggy Lee sang The Lord's Prayer at the services while Al Hibbler sang Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen and Fred Robbins, a long-time friend, gave the eulogy.

    Armstrong was posthumously awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1972 by the Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. This Special Merit Award is presented by vote of the Recording Academy's National Trustees to performers who, during their lifetimes, have made creative contributions of outstanding artistic significance to the field of recording. Recordings of Armstrong were inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, which is a special Grammy award established in 1973 to honor recordings that are at least twenty-five years old, and that have qualitative or historical significance.

    Some of you young folks been saying to me
    Hey Pops, what you mean 'What a wonderful world'?

    How about all them wars all over the place?
    You call them wonderful?

    And how about hunger and pollution?
    That ain't so wonderful either.

    Well how about listening to old Pops for a minute.
    Seems to me, it aint the world that's so bad
    but what we're doin' to it.

    And all I'm saying is see what a wonderful world
    It would be if only we'd give it a chance.
    Love baby, love. That's the secret, yeah.
    If lots more of us loved each other
    we'd solve lots more problems.
    And then this world would be gasser.

    That's wha' ol' Pops keeps saying.

    I see trees of green, red roses too
    I see them bloom, for me and you
    And I think to myself
    What a wonderful world

    I see skies of blue, and clouds of white
    The bright blessed day, dark sacred night
    And I think to myself
    What a wonderful world

    The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces, of people going by
    I see friends shaking hands, sayin', How do you do?
    They're really sayin', I love you

    I hear babies cryin', I watch them grow
    They'll learn much more, than I'll ever know
    And I think to myself
    What a wonderful world

    Yes, I think to myself
    What a wonderful world
    Oh yeah!

    Intended as an antidote for the increasingly racially and politically charged climate of everyday life in the United States, the song also has a hopeful, optimistic tone with regard to the future, with reference to babies being born into the world and having much to look forward to. The song was initially offered to Tony Bennett, who turned it down. Thereafter, it was offered to Louis Armstrong. The song was not initially a hit in the United States, where it sold fewer than 1,000 copies because the ABC Records head Larry Newton did not like the song and so did not promote it, but was a major success in the United Kingdom, reaching number one on the UK Singles Chart. In the US, the song hit #116 on the Billboard Bubbling Under Chart. It was also the biggest-selling single of 1968 in the UK where it was among the last pop singles issued by HMV Records before becoming an exclusive classical music label. The song made Louis Armstrong the oldest male to top the chart, at sixty-six years and ten months old. Armstrong's record was broken in 2009 when a cover version of Islands in the Stream recorded for Comic Relief -- which included 68-year-old Tom Jones -- reached number one.

    ABC Records' European distributor EMI forced ABC to issue a What A Wonderful World album in 1968 (catalogue number ABCS-650) which did not chart in the US due to ABC's non-promotion of it, but did chart in the UK where it was issued by Stateside Records with catalogue number SSL 10247 and peaked on the British chart at #37.

    The song gradually became something of a standard and reached a new level of popularity. In 1978, Armstrong's 1968 recording was featured in the closing scenes of the first series of BBC radio's cult hit, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and was repeated for BBC's 1981 TV series of the same. In 1988, Armstrong's recording was featured in the film Good Morning, Vietnam and was re-released as a single, hitting #32 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in February 1988. The single charted at number one for the fortnight ending June 27, 1988 on the Australian chart.

    In 2001, rappers Ghostface Killah, Raekwon and The Alchemist released The Forest, a song which begins with three lines of lyric adapted from What a Wonderful World, altered to become an invitation to get high on marijuana. The rappers and their record company, Sony Music Entertainment, were sued by the owners of What a Wonderful World, Abilene Music. The suit was thrown out of court after judge Gerard E. Lynch determined that the altered lyric was indisputably a parody, transforming the uplifting original message to a new one with a darker nature.

    The song used in this video is not of my own. It belongs to Louis Armstrong.

    LOUİS ARMSTRONG -- WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD

    Yeşil ağaçları görüyorum, kızıl gülleri de
    Sen ve ben için açtıklarını
    Ve düşünüyorum kendi kendime ne harika bir dünya diye.
    Mavi gökleri görüyorum ve beyaz bulutları
    Işıkla kutsanmış gün, karanlık kutsal gece
    Ve düşünüyorum kendi kendime ne harika bir dünya diye.
    Gökkuşağının renkleri ne güzeller gökyüzünde
    Ve bir de geçip giden insanların yüzlerinde
    Nasılsın diyerek el sıkışan dostları görüyorum
    Gerçekten seni seviyorum diyorlar
    Ağlayan bebekleri duyuyorum, büyümelerini izliyorum
    Hiç bilmeyeceğim kadar çok şey öğrenecekler
    Ve düşünüyorum kendi kendime ne harika bir dünya diye
    Evet düşünüyorum kendi kendime ne harika bir dünya diye.

    Isso também não é maravilhoso!

    Bom, que tal ouvir o velho Pops por um minuto?
    Me parece que o mundo não é tão ruim,

    E tudo o que estou dizendo é:
    Veja que mundo maravilhoso!
    Só vamos poder ver se nós nos dermos essa chance
    AME meu querido, AME!
    Ta ai o segredo, yeah!
    Quanto mais de nós amar uns aos outros
    Mais nós iremos resolver os problemas
    Dai então, esse mundo vai ser absurdamente incrível!

    What A Wonderful World was a song written by Bob Thiele (as George Douglas) and George David Weiss. It was first recorded by Louis Armstrong and released as a single on January 1, 1968. Armstrong's recording was inducted in the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999.

    «Wonderful World» redirige aquí. Para otros usos, véase Wonderful World (desambiguación).
    What a Wonderful World es una canción jazz escrita por Bob Thiele y George David Weiss, estrenada por Louis Armstrong y editada por primera vez como single a principios del otoño de 1967. Con la idea de ser un antídoto al clima político y racial de la década de 1960, fue escrita especialmente para Louis Armstrong, que le imprimió especial atractivo.
    La canción describe la delicia del cantante por las cosas simples de cada día, y mantiene un tono optimista con esperanza en el futuro, incluyendo una referencia a los bebés que nacen en el mundo y tendrán mucho para ver y crecer. No fue inicialmente un éxito en los Estados Unidos, donde vendió menos de 1000 copias, pero sí logró mayor recepción en el Reino Unido, hasta alcanzar el primer puesto de ventas en 1968.
    La difusión mundial de la canción tuvo lugar a partir de su inclusión en 1987 en la banda de sonido de la película Good Morning, Vietnam, dirigida por Barry Levinson y protagonizada -entre otros- por Robin Williams. Fue la banda sonora del inicio de las primeras temporadas de la serie norteamericana Cosas de casa.

    Louis Armstrong: What a wonderful world

    2:17

    What a wonderful world (traduzione in Italiano)

    Vedo alberi verdi, anche rose rosse
    Le vedo sbocciare per me e per te
    E fra me e me penso, che mondo meraviglioso

    Vedo cieli blu e nuvole bianche
    Il benedetto giorno luminoso, la sacra notte scura
    E fra me e me penso, che mondo meraviglioso

    I colori dell'arcobaleno, così belli nel cielo
    Sono anche nelle facce della gente che passa
    Vedo amici stringersi la mano, chiedendo come va?
    Stanno davvero dicendo Ti amo

    Sento bambini che piangono, li vedo crescere
    Impareranno molto più di quanto io saprò mai
    E fra me e me penso, che mondo meraviglioso
    Sì, fra me e me penso, che mondo meraviglioso

    What a Wonderful World (dall'inglese letteralmente: che mondo meraviglioso) è una famosa canzone in lingua inglese. Scritta da Bob Thiele (con lo pseudonimo George Douglas) e George David Weiss, fu interpretata per la prima volta da Louis Armstrong, e pubblicata come singolo agli inizi di autunno del 1967. Il significato simbolico del brano What a Wonderful World è stata intesa dai suoi autori come un invito alla scoperta del piacere della vita: dai toni ottimistici e rilassati, esalta la bellezza del mondo e della diversità fra i popoli, oltre a costituire un invito a non diffidare del futuro. Fu pensata come una sorta di antidoto al crescente clima di tensione politico e razziale negli USA e scritta appositamente per Armstrong, il quale faceva presa sul pubblico.

    What a Wonderful World is a song written by Bob Thiele (as George Douglas) and George David Weiss. It was first recorded by Louis Armstrong and released in 1967 as a single, which topped the pop charts in the United Kingdom. Thiele and Weiss were both prominent in the music world (Thiele as a producer and Weiss as a composer/performer). Armstrong's recording was inducted in the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999. Intended as an antidote for the increasingly racially and politically charged climate of everyday life in the United States, the song also has a hopeful, optimistic tone with regard to the future, with reference to babies being born into the world and having much to look forward to. The song was initially offered to Tony Bennett, who turned it down. Thereafter, it was offered to Louis Armstrong. George Weiss recounts in the book Off the Record: Songwriters on Songwriting by Graham Nash that he wrote the song specifically for Louis Armstrong. Weiss was inspired by Armstrong's ability to bring people of different races together. The song was not initially a hit in the United States, where it sold fewer than 1,000 copies because ABC Records head Larry Newton did not like the song and therefore did not promote it, but was a major success in the United Kingdom, reaching number one on the UK Singles Chart. In the US, the song hit No. 116 on the Billboard Bubbling Under Chart. It was also the biggest-selling single of 1968 in the UK where it was among the last pop singles issued by HMV Records before becoming an exclusive classical music label. The song made Louis Armstrong the oldest male to top the UK Singles Chart, at sixty-six years and ten months old. Armstrong's record was broken in 2009 when a cover version of Islands in the Stream recorded for Comic Relief—which included the 68-year-old Tom Jones—reached number one in that chart. Tony Bennett did go on to cover What A Wonderful World several times, as in 2003 with K.D. Lang, paying homage to Bennett's friend Armstrong.

    The song has been recorded by many artists including: Rod Stewart, Katie Melua (with Eva Casidy), Tony Bennet (including duet with K.D. Lang), Joey Ramone, Anne Murray, Roy Clark, The Clarks, Ministry, Israel Kamakawiwo'ole and many more.

    What A Wonderful World

    I see trees of green, red roses, too

    I see them bloom, for me and you
    And I think to myself
    What a wonderful world.

    I see skies of blue, and clouds of white,
    The bright blessed day,
    The dark sacred night
    And I think to myself,
    What a wonderful world.

    The colour of the rainbow,
    So pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces,
    Of people going by
    I see friends shaking hands,
    Saying How do you do?
    They're really sayin': I love you.

    I hear babies cry,
    I watch them grow,
    They'll learn much more,
    Than I'll ever know
    And I think to myself,
    What a wonderful world,
    Yes, I think to myself,
    What a wonderful world

    Louis Armstrong (1901 – 1971), nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, was an American trumpeter, composer, singer and occasional actor who was one of the most influential figures in jazz. His career spanned five decades, from the 1920s to the 1960s, and different eras in jazz.

    Coming to prominence in the 1920s as an inventive trumpet and cornet player, Armstrong was a foundational influence in jazz, shifting the focus of the music from collective improvisation to solo performance. With his instantly recognizable gravelly voice, Armstrong was also an influential singer, demonstrating great dexterity as an improviser, bending the lyrics and melody of a song for expressive purposes. He was also skilled at scat singing.

    Renowned for his charismatic stage presence and voice almost as much as for his trumpet playing, Armstrong's influence extends well beyond jazz, and by the end of his career in the 1960s, he was widely regarded as a profound influence on popular music in general.

    Intended as an antidote for the increasingly racially and politically charged climate of everyday life in the United States, the song also has a hopeful, optimistic tone with regard to the future, with reference to babies being born into the world and having much to look forward to. The song was initially offered to Tony Bennett, who turned it down. Thereafter, it was offered to Louis Armstrong. The song was not initially a hit in the United States, where it sold fewer than 1,000 copies because the head of ABC Records did not like the song and so did not promote it, but was a major success in the United Kingdom, reaching number one on the UK Singles Chart. In the U.S. the song hit #116 on the Bubbling Under Charts. It was also the biggest-selling single of 1968 in the UK where it was among the last pop singles issued by HMV Records before becoming an exclusive classical music label. The song made Louis Armstrong the oldest male to top the charts, at sixty-six years and ten months old. Armstrong's record was broken in 2009 when the cover of Islands in the Stream recorded for Comic Relief - which included 68-year-old Tom Jones - reached number one.

    ABC Records' European distributor EMI forced ABC to issue a What A Wonderful World album in 1968 (catalogue number ABCS-650) which did not chart in the US due to ABC's non-promotion of it, but did chart in the UK where it was issued by Stateside Records with catalogue number SSL 10247 and peaked on the British chart at #37.

    The song gradually became something of a standard and reached a new level of popularity. In 1988, Louis Armstrong's 1968 recording was featured in the film Good Morning, Vietnam and was re-released as a single, hitting #32 on the US Billboard chart in February 1988. The single charted at number one for the fortnight ending June 27, 1988 on the Australian charts.
