George Michael & Aretha Franklin- I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)

George’s second appearance on the blog was his second UK#1. The duet was at the top for 2 weeks, but was already in the chart for the last time on this day in the 80s, at #58. It was his 3rd of 7 #1s from ’84-’96.

It was Aretha’s only UK#1, and it’s her fourth time on the blog, putting her at joint eighth most appearances.

It was a US#1 as well, Aretha’s second and last after ’67’s “Respect”, and George’s 2nd of 8 from ’84-’91.


Looking back, when I think of all those disappointments, I just laugh
