What a Difference a Day Made played on chromatic harmonica: HOHNER CX-12 Jazz in C.
"What a Difference a Day Made" is a popular song originally written in Spanish by María Méndez Grever (a.k.a. María Grever), a Mexican composer, in 1934. Originally, the song was known as "Cuando Vuelva A Tu Lado".
The English lyrics were written by Stanley Adams, made famous by Harry Roy & his Orchestra. It was published in late 1934. The song is in the Bolero romantic style and it is also known as "What a Difference a Day Makes".
This song is one of the most popular boleros of all time, and the signature recording of the song belongs to that of Dinah Washington, who won a Grammy Award in 1959 for Best Rhythm and Blues Performance with this song, and her version was also inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998. Esther Phillips discotized 1975 remake was a top 20 hit.
It was recorded by Diana Ross in 1972, but not released until thirty-four years later when her Blue album was discovered in the Motown vaults and released in 2006. Other artist versions include Sarah Vaughan, Renee Olstead, Eydie Gorme in 1964 album titled Eydie Gorme canta en español con Los Panchos, Luis Miguel in his Romance album 1991, etc. Jamie Cullum's 2003 debut album, twentysomething, also features a remake of this song. In 2007 R&B/Dance singer Deborah Cox made a remake of this song on her album Destination Moon. Also in 2007, Peter Criss covered the song on his album One For All.
