"What A Diff'rence A Day Makes ("Cuando Vuelva A Tu Lado")"

OK, back to the 30's: Mexican composer Maria (Mendez) Grever wrote this pop standard in Spanish in '34. Stanley Adams added English lyrics. First recorded by Stanley Roy & His Orchestra. Dinah Washington's '59 version won her a Grammy for Best R&B Performance and was her 1st hit, peaking at #8. It was inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame in '98. Part of the "Casino" soundtrack ('95). Spanish and English titles?

Yesterday's answer: "Chirpy, Chirpy, Cheep, Cheep". From Dan Rogers: Oh, Ick! That had to be the low point of music in the 70s. And there were so many to choose from. I had to go find a video on Youtube: "Window" format for them to stand, the whole works. My eyes and ears really hurt now! "Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep" is the (hurl ... cough ... gag) song.
