Guess what day it is today? pic.twitter.com/GpzqGyOZTMYes, it is really August 22! But this was posted in UK time which is 6 hours ahead of me (that is why the date stamp is incorrect).

So... I was thinking about what was going on in England that day 43 years ago when little Richie came in to the world. Oh sure, there was probably a lot on the news and depressing stuff like that, but what I'd like to remember is what was playing on the radio! I looked up UK hits from 1971, and during the month of August it was this song that was the big hit. Even though I consider myself a fairly knowledgeable pop music fan, I had never heard of I'm Still Waiting, by the former Supreme - Diana Ross. Apparently it was huge in Europe and didn't even register on the charts in North America. I have to admit I didn't really like it at first, but after repeated listenings it is growing on me.
This is a nice recording here, but I wanted to include this UK concert footage to show how popular this song is with her fans.
I'm Still Waiting / Diana Ross
As the lyrics go:
It made me wonder if there is someone waiting for Mr. Armitage, or if he is waiting for someone... I guess I'm just a romantic at heart, but I wish that everyone will some day find someone to share their love.
