This page lists the chart runs for songs called "Wonderful World" in order of success. This list combines cover versions and distinct songs that happen to share the same title.
There are a number of songs with the words "Wonderful World" in the title. Sam Cooke wrote one (which is often refered to by the title "(What a) Wonderful World", Louis Armstrong had a big hit with one called "What a Wonderful World". We've attempted to split these songs correctly but have almost certainly mislabeled some entries, so when looking at the page for Wonderful World you should also consider the songs shown at (What a) Wonderful World.

#2 - Herman's Hermits
Title of this song is actually 'Wonderful World" rather than (What A) Wonderful world. Totally different song.
The Sam Cooke song "Wonderful World" is often known as "(What a) Wonderful World" (Wikipedia claims the Herman's Hermits song is a cover of that), menawhile "What a Wonderful World" (for example by Louis Armstrong) is as you say a different song.
We've made the correction you suggested, but that almost certainly means that at least one of the covers has also been misassigned. We've added notes to the two song title pages and hope that people will tell us which ones still need correcting.
Thanks for the suggestion
