The most lovely song for singing your itty bitties to sleep could arguably be "What A Wonderful World." It's a purty tune with a lovely sentiment and it's been covered from here to the moon and back. Yesterday I posted on Victoria Williams (and I heard from no one thankyouverymuch) and she covered this tune on the very same CD I nabbed those two songs from. But I'm not posting it here. Instead, I've chosen another six versions, each wildly different. For just listening pleasure, I'll take the Shane and Nick or the Flaming Lips version but for soothing babies? The Innocence Mission wins hands down. Although there is no arguing with Louis.
Louis Armstrong, "What a Wonderful World"
Dan Zanes & Lou Reed, "What a Wonderful World"
Shane MacGowan & Nick Cave, "What a Wonderful World"
Ruth Brown, "What a Wonderful World"
The Flaming Lips, "What a Wonderful World"
The Innocence Mission, "What a Wonderful World"
Other people who have covered WAWW: Willie Nelson, K.D. Lang, Joey Ramone, BB King, Etta James, Glen Campbell, Gloria Gaynor & more.
