Wonderful World (Adler-Alpert-Cooke) by Sam Cooke

This simply-produced recording (co-written by Herb Alpert) achieved a respectable-but-unremarkable pop chart peak of #12 upon its initial 1960 release. But thanks to later hit versions by other artists and the song’s inclusion in some popular films, both the tune and this Cooke track have been elevated to “classic” status over the years.
