It’s a wonderful world

by | Saturday, July 12, 2008

My 12 year old son, Soham, has never been into music. An MP3 player I bought for him languishes somewhere in his room. So you can imagine my surprise when, a few months ago, he indicated an interest in a song, Louis Armstrong’s What a wonderful world. So this posting is for him, two very beautiful, yet very different renditions/representations of the same song, brought to you, thanks to YouTube.
