The Top Ten
Best song ever
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.

Stunning song that makes me feel happy.
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.
His raspy voice makes the song even more beautiful...
A very happy song for a not very happy world..V 23 Comments
Just the best one. What a wonderful world is beautiful, but is not jazz, is pop. - dibildox912
This has got to be one of the best songs ever recorded. It's just do beautiful and expressive. Trane was so beautiful.
It is impossible to hear this song without wanting to get up and dance. The thump of the drums, the edge of the brass, and the melodic sound of the saxophones come together beautifully in this instantly recognizable piece.
It's just impossible not to dance to this piece of art
We should have credit for Louis Prima who wrote and preformed it in 1933 - nimamoradi
So much energy. This piece really stands out.V 5 Comments
it is ok
This song has a great bass riff, excellent solos on multiple instruments and a very memorable 'chorus.' It's an enjoyable listen and Ferguson's outstanding trumpet playing makes it all the more so.
This song makes my chops hurt just by listening to it! Maynard Ferguson is one of the best trumpet players! - Phillip873
I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH!
This song makes sence. Or what I mean is that it's good.
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. - mgenet
After you listen to this song you can't help but be more knowledgeable about music.
As a trumpeter, there's no argument here. It's Miles.V 2 Comments
One of the best voices forgotten today. Real diva of blues/jazz when the word "Diva" meant something
This song is very rhythmic also has a great melody. Gets my vote
My favorite piece. That's it.
Great piece, but Horace Silver wrote it
Masterpiece from Winehouse! Missed her so much :(
Died too young with such talent and great voice. Love it when they redo oldies
Dead but not forgotton RIP amy she was too young to die a
What this is jazz? I came here because I've been wanting to get more into jazz. Great song, but I feel like while it's jazzy at parts, its overall genre would be more akin to experimental rock. - chevygolderado
Bass rock, psychedelic and jazz if you ask me. Yes, not jazz only but as a whole builds up with jazz music and a jazzy feel. Both the calm kind to the more stressful kind. Another jazz tune by them is Life In A Glass House and Pyramid Song (Egyptian Song) is inspired by the works of none other than Charles Mingus and his song Freedom.
A variational song that can make you feel, calm, cool, happy, sad, angry and stressful. Yes all in one
Calm, stressful, rocking, swingingV 6 Comments

Greatest jazz song by the greatest pianist ever.
I love this song! Morrisons piano work and the diversity of instruments are amazing. A+ to that sax solo to!
Harry Connick, Jr., does great work with vintage music; he's only the latest in a long line of great performers covering this beautiful song. "I Only Have Eyes for You" is a popular romantic love song by composer Harry Warren and lyricist Al Dubin, written in 1934 for the film DAMES where it was introduced by Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler. According to Billboard magazine, the song was a #2 hit for Ben Selvin in 1934. It was used the following year in the film, THE WOMAN IN RED, produced by Warner Bros., starring Barbara Stanwyck and Gene Raymond. It was also used in the 1950 film TEA FOR TWO, where it was sung by Gordon MacRae. It was also used in the 1980 musical 42ND STREET. The song was recorded in 1945 by Frank Sinatra, in 1947 by Peggy Lee, and in 1959 by the Flamingos, becoming one of their most popular hits. Rolling Stone magazine ranked the Flamingos' version #157 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. This version peaked at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 ...more
Seriously?! Since when was Madonna and radiohead Jazz? This is the most idiotic jazz list I've ever seen. Where the hell is metheny, mehldau, monk, corea, Davis, Coltrane, Evans, etc? This is incredibly stupid.
