“Cupid, we don’t need ya now, be on your way…”

One of the most fun and beautiful songs to come out of the 60s, ‘More Today Than Yesterday’ by one hit wonders The Spiral Starecase is as sentimental as it is simple, and that’s why we love it so much! If you think about it, it’s perfect: it’s catchy without being overly repetitive but it’s been stuck in our heads since it was first released in 1969, and it expresses a simple sentiment that surely anyone who’s ever been in love can attest to – every day feels like a brand new day and thus, you love them even more than you did a mere day ago.

Written in 1969, ‘More Today Than Yesterday’ would go on to be The Spiral Starecase’s biggest hit to date, boasting both an impressive brass horn section and singer Pat Upton’s unique voice that are more reminiscent of something soul singer Stevie Wonder would have written early in his career.

Fun Fact: ‘More Today Than Yesterday’ has been covered by, among others, Sonny and Cher, Diana Ross and the band Goldfinger.

You know you’ve hit it big when people mistake you for one of the most legendary singer-songwriters in history! While The Spiral Starecase never quite achieved the same level of fame as their song due to poor management and squabbles over finances caused the group to splinter by 1969, at least they can say that they’ve left a legacy that’s brought together millions upon millions of couples and put words to a love that’s sometimes a little too hard to name!

+ More Today Than Yesterday lyrics +

I don’t remember what day it was
I didn’t notice what time it was
All I know is that I fell in love with you
And if all my dreams come true
I’ll be spending time with you

Every day’s a new day in love with you
With each day comes a new way of loving you
Every time I kiss your lips my mind starts to wander
And if all my dreams come true
I’ll be spending time with you

Oh, I love you more today than yesterday
But not as much as tomorrow
I love you more today than yesterday
But, darling, not as much as tomorrow

Tomorrow’s date means springtime’s just a day away
Cupid, we don’t need ya now, be on your way
I thank the Lord for love like ours that grows ever stronger
And I always will be true
I know you feel the same way, too

Oh, I love you more today than yesterday
But not as much as tomorrow
I love you more today than yesterday
But only half as much as tomorrow

Every day’s a new day
Every time I love ya
Every way’s a new way
Every time I love ya
Every day’s a new day
Every time I kiss ya
Every day’s a new day
