I'm Still Waiting
"I'm Still Waiting" is a popular song, written and produced by Deke Richards and recorded by Diana Ross; it first appeared on Ross's 1970 album Everything Is Everything. The song reached No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart in August 1971. It also reached number one in Ireland.
"I'm Still Waiting" continued the vein of sophisticated soul as heard on Ross's breakthrough solo hit "Ain't No Mountain High Enough". However, it was only a modest success in the US, reaching No. 63 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, and No. 40 on the R&B chart.
Although it was initially intended only as an album track, BBC Radio 1 disc jockey Tony Blackburn featured it heavily on his morning programme, and persuaded EMI—which at the time issued all Tamla Motown material in the UK—to release it as a single. It reached No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart for four weeks in August 1971; this prompted a retitling in the UK of the album Surrender as I'm Still Waiting.
