That Day

Waiting for That Day

Waiting For That Day was a song performed and largely written by George Michael which was released on Epic Records in 1990 in the UK and on Columbia Records in 1991 in the US.

The song was the third US single from Michael's "Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1" album. Waiting For That Day peaked at #23 in the UK in October 1990 and was followed in the UK by three more singles from the album, all of which peaked slightly lower than that of its predecessor. In the US the song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 on February 9, 1991, appeared on the chart for five weeks, and peaked at #27.

Although George wrote it alone, his decision to use the line "you can't always get what you want" at the very end of the song meant a co-writer credit was given to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

While the song did not enjoy great chart success in the United States, the single's b-side, "Mother's Pride" achieved airplay success during the Gulf War.

This song title is also the title of the twelfth episode in the first season of ABC's ''Eli Stone.
