The Top Ten

1 What a Wonderful World 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!

We are not living in a wonderful world right now but listening this will make it better for at least a few minutes

2 Hello, Dolly! 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!

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

5 La Vie En Rose 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!

Its classical!

8 St. Louis Blues 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

9 All of Me 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

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!

I am 12 and doing a podcast for my social studys and to me this is the best song, I love this song, but I'm still a big fan of pop, this is a really good song though no mistakes or doutes about it

12 A Kiss to Build a Dream On 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

Like this it make's me want to kiss someone

pure class

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.
