It is a wonderful world but this song is wonderful too - MatrixGuy

The combination of the beautiful and truthful lyrics plus Lousi Armstrong's unique voice makes this song one to remember and treasure.

2Hello Dolly!

His voice is so deep and so rich its just beautiful to hear, during this song. When he comes on stage, he just lights up the whole audience. He is truly one of the greatest singers ever!

It is the best

His voice is so rich and musical that I could die for the voice and the ablites to play the saxaphone and I think everyone would want that two

3Potato Head Blues

I really like it cause it's citysong like and makes you wanna dance!

When I first heard this piece, I was blown away. This is truly a masterpiece, and something that everyone should listen to.

Wonderful World is #1 without a doubt but this piece is amazing, I love the trumpet playing, one of Louis Armstrong's finest works - fidelcanojr

5La Vie En Rose

My son, who's three, and I love this song! He does because it's featured in the Disney movie Wall-E and myself because it is just such a great, emotive, heartfelt song!

I absolutely adore this song, I could listen to it all day! It is just so beautiful... My favorite song at the moment! Something tells me Louis Armstrong is the only singer I will be listening to for the next few days!

Beautiful song.. Could listen to it all day makes me feel like I am in France!

It simply makes me cry each time I hear it.

6Ain't Misbehavin'

I am a college student working on a podcast for an education class. I want to center it around introducing the topic of jazz/blues. Great song!

9St. Louis Blues

I'm currently play this at upper Darby high school, and it's by far my favorite Louis Armstrong song

Easily the greatest song of Louis Armstrong and also one of the 10 greatest songs of all time. The way he has sung the song and played the trumpet, just elevates this song to an ethereal sphere! WHAT AN UNALLOYED GENIUS?

I play the trumpet myself and this piece is incredible!

Check out the Tom JOnes version too, it's awesome

10All of Me

It was either this or A Kiss To Build A Dream On. But I've made my choice, I'm sitting right here. Love him in High Society.
Sweet! - Britgirl

The Contenders

11Gut Bucket Blues
12West End Blues
13A Kiss to Build a Dream On

The mix I have of this song is bad and the solo is way too forward, but this is still my #1 Louis Armstrong song. Louis' voice is just right for this love song and the tempo puts me in mind of watching the clouds on a sunny day - daydreaming. Wonderful World is right up there with this one.

Fallout 2... Turned out to be a pretty average game but when this song came on their great taste in music helped me forgive them.
This song is closely followed by "What a wonderful world" and "La vie en rose".

Just, a classic, a masterpiece, something to make you happy, cry or relax

What? This is the best song ever and I am only a 10 year old so ha to you suckers who don't like this song

15Go Down Moses
16Back Home Again In Indiana
17We Have All the Time In the World

Recorded in the late-60's as the B side of secondary Bond theme. It came to mainstream public attention in 1994 when it featured in a Guinness advertisment campagin and reached number three in the UK Singles Chart, his last UK hit to date.
Like 'What A Wonderful World' it's a great traditional sounding Jazz love song, I've got it on vinyl.
If you're Americian you may be be unaware of the song as it is best known here in the UK, click listen to sample before you make your mind up.

19'Zat You, Santa Claus?
20When You're Smiling
