Rumors go Colin Vearncombe, alias Black, wrote this sarcastic little tune due to his marriage failing, a few car crashes and no breakthrough as a musician.
Vearncombe was a gifted songwriter and died only 53 years old of injuries inflicted by a car accident.
While there are many cover versions of Wonderful Life the German interpretations are rather … erm … interesting … Do you dare?
Black – Wonderful Life
Colin Vearncombe – Wonderful Life
Peaky Blinders – Wonderful Life
Katie Melua – Wonderful Life
These are the German bands that needed to cover this song in absolutely particular order.
Seed – Wonderful Life
Blutengel – Wonderful Life
Scooter – The Sound Above My Hair
Have a wonderful Sunday.
One thought on “Schlager Sunday – Wonderful Life”
My favourite Black song is
‘No-one, None, Nothing’
His voice is so unusual 🖤
