Black Backing Tracks – Wonderful Life

Colin Vearncombe, known by his stage name Black, was an English singer-songwriter. He achieved mainstream pop success in the late 1980s, most notably with the 1986 single “Wonderful Life”, which was an international hit the following year.

In 1982, Black played with the Thompson Twins on their ‘Quick Step and Side Kick’ tour.

After releasing a few low rated songs, Black released “Wonderful Life” in 1985 which reached number eight in the UK Singles Chart. “Wonderful Life” was later covered by singers including Kim Wilde and Tony Hadley.

Despite being considered by some as a one hit wonder, Black continued to record and release music until his death in a car accident in 2016.

Wonderful Life


Here I go out to sea again
The sunshine fills my hair
And dreams hang in the air
Gulls in the sky and in my blue eyes
You know it feels unfair
There’s magic everywhere

Look at me standing
Here on my own again
Up straight in the sunshine
No need to run and hide
It’s a wonderful wonderful life
No need to laugh and cry
It’s a wonderful wonderful life
