Songs I Love: I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)

Last night my husband and I drove down to College Park to see the Wake Forest/Maryland basketball game. That is not what is making me happy because that was a travesty of a basketball game. Both teams played horribly, but of course Wake played worse and lost by 11 points. It was ugly. Wake needs to work on their free throws, passing, shot clock management, and you know all other things related to basketball. I really hope they will finally fire Jeff Bzdelik after this season, but I’ve kind of given up hope on that one. Seems like Wake’s Athletic Director is digging in his heels on this one, and doesn’t want to admit he made a huge mistake.

Anyway, on the way home last night I heard “I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)” by Aretha Franklin and George Michael on the radio. I had kind of forgotten about the song until I heard it last night, but it made me really happy. I just kind of like the song in general, but also everything about it is so gloriously 80s that it makes it even better. I watched the video in preparing to write this blog post and that made it even better. Apparently the song was a much bigger hit than I remember winning a Grammy award and reaching the top of the charts both in the US and the UK. It’s a very joyous song and I hope it puts a smile on your face like it did mine.
