Wonderful Song

As we start yet another week of 2011, my song challenge continues and today calls for- A song that reminds you of someone.

I have to say that in my case I am posting a song that doesn't really reminds me of this particular person, but more makes me think of him... As he is a very important person in my life, so I think of him often (meaning I don't need a song to remind me of him!)

The song is a wonderful one and it goes well with how special and wonderful my world is because I have him in my life. I am talking about my stepdad/uncle/godfather Manrique.

And although he is not my "real father", I very well know that, "It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us father and daughter."


 

The song that makes me think of him is no other than 

What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong.


First time I ever heard that song, we were on a family vacation in the US and Manrique bought Louie Armstrong's cassette tape. 

During this month vacation we drove from Atlanta to New Orleans and in the car we were allowed to rotate music, so each one of us was allowed a cassette to play, he would only play this one...

Isn't this a wonderful song with an amazing message?!?!? A great one to start the week.

Now, have a wonderful day!!!

This song is a classic! I totally agree with you about a father being the person who holds your heart, too. In my case, I'm much closer to my grandfather than my "real" father.

I love this song, it is timeless, and always reminds me of the value of life. It carries so much wisdom and was sung by a man with a heart of Gold! :-))
