"I'll Never Be The Same" is a popular song based on an instrumental called "Little Buttercup" written by Matty Malneck and Frank Signorelli. After several musicians had recorded the instrumental version, lyrics were written by Gus Kahn.[1] The completed song was introduced in 1932 by Mildred Bailey and Paul Whiteman; their version rose to number fourteen on the charts. The same year, Guy Lombardo recorded the song; his version rose to number eight. It is ranked 210 in JazzStandards.com's listing of the 1000 most-frequently recorded jazz standard compositions.[2]
