Tag Archives: What A Difference A Day Makes


25 Jun

What a difference a day makes.  Such a completely simple thought, but one that everything boils down to, no?  “What A Diff’rence A Day Makes,” the song, was actually originally a Spanish language song and the original lyrics are completely different (diff’rent?) than they are in English.  So even with the song itself, look at the difference a day makes! It was written by Maria Grever in 1934 and was called “Cuando Vuelva A Tu Lado” and I guess for the sentiment I want to convey, I should really be posting the English song.  But I just love the Spanish version too much not to go with it.

Maria Grever was the first successful female Mexican composer. It’s said that she composed her first music at age 4. I scoffed at that tidbit when I first learned it, but I had my first blog at age 4, so maybe that’s true. Well, that’s not true.  But had there been internet, I totally would have, so I still believe the Maria Grever story.

But I digress.

Back to what a difference – or diff’rence – a day makes. For those of you who have been sending those positive vibes and good thoughts, thank you. The vibes in question have apparently reached their intended destination and things are looking up. Still not out of the woods, but the forest has gone from redwoods to white birches so it’s way easier to navigate. For those who are reading and don’t know what on earth I’m talking about, don’t worry. It won’t affect your enjoyment of the amazing song that’s just waiting for your ears.  Let’s just leave it as good thoughts were direly needed and good thoughts have been wholly received.

Apparently I have friends with super powerful good thoughts ability.  And, you know, that’s even a more basic truth that ‘what a difference a day makes.’
