Song of the day: Black- Wonderful Life

black wonderful world

When at first you don’t succeed, you try again. That must have been the strategy of Black. He had written a song after divorcing his wife, which he recorded solo under the name of the group he had first been in (which was a trio called Black). The first release of his single, in 1986, had no success. So he thought: “let’s release it again.” And he did so in 1987, causing a massive success. As far as I know, he only changed the record compagny. There were some other, small (bottom of the 100 single chart in the UK) hits, but this one really made it, making it to number 8 in the UK.
