#SatchmoFactoftheDay 18


One of #LouisArmstrong’s most #famous songs, “What a Wonderful World” initially had a lot of pushback and issues from his record company. The boss of ABC Records hated it and did not promote it until it became a hit in #England. This remains the song that is most associated with Armstrong despite the fact it does not represent his body of work, which consists mostly of jazz. He broke the record as the oldest act on the top #UK Charts when this song reached #1. His record was not broken until 2009. Also, the song was surged back into popularity in 1988 when it was re-released in the #US after it was used in the Robin Williams movie, Good Morning, Vietnam.
