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

5 La 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!

Heard this recently. Just gorgeous. I love this man. MatrixGuy, check out my list of Best Male Jazz Singers Of All Time if and when you feel like it. - Britgirl

I think this song is the best.

I like the name

This song is swag

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

10 All 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

11 Gut Bucket Blues
12 West End Blues

Might be the best song ever recorded

Changed the way music was made


13 A 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

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