10 – Louis Armstrong – I Wonder
Categories: MF2003

I can’t get over how well this follows “Pain”  It’s my favorite transition on the cake.  I remember when I first really got turned onto Satchmo…Good Morning Vietnam!  I had heard him before, but hearing What a Wonderful World in the movie really hit home for me.  I bought his greatest hits and listened to most of it, but somehow I always skipped past this track.  It wasn’t until I graduated college that I found myself really “hearing” this track for the first time.  It is like none other that he did.  The soulfulness of the loss, the perfectly crafted lyrics and that brilliant horn that he seems to push the exact same tears through as he does in the words.
