1 What a Wonderful World

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.

I love this song! We are learning about new orelans in school, my teacher popped his cd in, then I was instantly hooked!

Wonderul song for a project

2 Hello, 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

Nice song I love it

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

3 Potato 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

This was recorded in 1927 and was so ahead of it's time. Still sounds great today.

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!

9 St. 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

13 A Kiss to Build a Dream On

This is the most amazing song I've ever heard. fallout 2 is why I'm here

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
