Remember That Song – 3/18/20

Can you name the artist and song:

The spheres’re in commotion
The elements in harmony


Last Song: “What A Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong from the Good Morning, Vietnam Soundtrack (1988)

Great job Jim (@JimVilk), Lynne (@LynneAshton2), Lori (@ThreezkyMusic), and Miller (@MillerRobson)!!!

I see skies of blue
And clouds of white
The bright blessed day
The dark sacred night
