Day By Day

Well, Wikipedia has let me down. No one else knows much about this tune, either.

However, Ella Fitzgerald recorded this tune in 1953, which was six years after her famous Decca recording of Lady Be Good. This was also the year she divorced bass player Ray Brown, with whom she adopted a son.

Ella was not the first to record it, nor was she the last. She is, however, one of my long-time singing idols, so learning more about Ella is always a good thing for me.
