The Top Ten

What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong
This is a beautiful, really really beautiful song. Just listening to it makes me so happy and if you search the video on youtube Louis Armstrong also sings it so beautifully, smiling the whole time. Beautiful Lyrics, great, soulful singer.

2Take Five - Dave Brubeck
This was a defining song, it was the first time a white person had created a successful jazz song.It issued the style of modern Jazz, Paul Desmond's solo is a catchy but skilful masterpiece in a 5/4 format and not to mention the cheekiness of Dave out weighs everything.
It's got a memorable piano riff, an excellent drum solo and an all around relaxing vibe to it. I love it.


Best song... no more

3Acknowledgment - John Coltrane Quartet
Just the best one. What a wonderful world is beautiful, but is not jazz, is pop.


4My Favorite Things - Dave Brubeck

5All Blues - Kenny Burrell

6So What - Miles Davis
A classic from a classic album. This song is new every time I listen to it. It is not the only song from 'Kind of Blue' that should be on the list but it is my favorite. This song, and the album it is on, influenced multiple jazz, pop, and rock musicians.


I love this song.

7Birdland - Maynard Ferguson

8Strange Fruit - Nina Simone

9Song for My Father - Hermao Feriera

10Sing, Sing, Sing - Benny Goodman and His Orchestra

The Contenders

11Feeling Good - Nina Simone
Very smooth; very sexy; very soulful and VERY Nina Simone.


One of the best Songs ever

Masterpiece from Winehouse! Missed her so much :(

13My Funny Valentine - Marian McPartland

14Since I Fell for You - Gladys Knight

A variational song that can make you feel, calm, cool, happy, sad, angry and stressful. Yes all in one
Starts slow, then upbeat and then irritating. A mix of drums, electric guitar and a trumpet later on. A more calmer one is Life In A Glass House

16Sooner or Later - Madonna

17Moondance - Van Morrison

18Mr. Bojangles - Robbie Williams

19I Only Have Eyes for You - Harry Connick, Jr.

20Take the A Train - The Dave Brubeck Quartet
