Lyrics: I'm only one step ahead of heartbreak one step ahead of misery one step is all I have to take backwards, to be the same old fool for you I used to be I'm only one step ahead of your arms one kiss away from your sweet lips I know I can't afford to stop for one moment Cos I'm just out of reach of your fingertips Your warm breath on my shoulder Keeps reminding me That it's too soon to forget you It's too late to be free, can't you see? I'm only one step ahead of your love I try and yet I can't take two Seems like I'll have to take that one step backwards Cos one step ahead is a step too far away from you... Cos one step ahead is a step too far away from you... Just one step ahead is a step too far away from you...

Aretha Franklin - What A Diff'rence A Day Made (Columbia Records 1964)

"What a Diff'rence a Day Made" is a popular song originally written in Spanish by María Méndez Grever (María Grever), a Mexican composer, in 1934. Originally, the song was known as Cuando Vuelva A Tu Lado ("When I Return To Your Side"). The song is also known in English as "What a Diff'rence a Day Makes". Aretha's rendition as well as many other can be found on 'Unforgettable: A Tribute to Dinah Washington' which is a studio tribute album dedicated to the recently deceased singer Dinah Washington whom passed away in December 14, 1963. This album was recorded in less than two months after Dinah's death on February 7th to 10th, 1964. Aretha would later recant, "I first heard Dinah when I was just a kid," she said, "back around the time she made 'Fat Daddy.' I never got to know her personally in those days, though she and my father were good friends. "The idea of recording a tribute to her grew out of the way I've always felt about her. I didn't try to do the songs the same way she did them, necessarily - just the way they felt best, whether they happened to be similar or different." The sessions were recorded in New York. A few tunes were cut with strings in order to bring out the essential ballad character of the songs (with the help of Bob Mersey's arranging); most of the tracks, though, were made with the assistance of a small and sympathetic accompanying group for which Mersey supplied minimal written guidance.
