"More Today Than Yesterday" is a song written by Pat Upton and performed by Spiral Starecase. It reached number 6 in Canada,[1] number 7 on the Cashbox Top 100,[2] and number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1969.[3] It was also released in the United Kingdom as a single, but did not chart.[4] The song was featured on their 1969 album, More Today Than Yesterday.[5]

Produced by Sonny Knight and arranged by Al Capps,[6] it ranked number 50 on Billboard magazine's Top Hot 100 songs of 1969.[7]

The principal idea of the song was made famous at the turn of the 20th century in a poem by Rosemonde Gérard, the wife of the poet and playwright Edmond Rostand (Cyrano de Bergerac).
