|Diana Ross singles chronology|
"I'm Still Waiting" is a popular song written and produced by Deke Richards and recorded by Diana Ross, which first appeared on her 1970 album Everything Is Everything. It reached #1 on the UK singles chart in 1971.
"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 #63 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and #40 on the R&B chart.
Although initially intended only as an album track, BBC Radio 1 disc jockey Tony Blackburn featured it heavily on his morning programme and persuaded EMI, who then issued all Tamla Motown material in the UK, to release it as a single. On the UK singles chart, it reached #1 for four weeks in August 1971, prompting a retitle of the album Surrender in the UK to the title of I'm Still Waiting.
The track was remixed by DJ Phil Chill in 1990 and was released as a single, reaching #21 in the UK Singles Chart. It is one of the few Ross remix songs to be released as a single.
