5.0 out of 5 stars Defining Moments March 8, 2010
Most artist have a defining moment...a song or an album that they will be associated with for the rest of their lives.

Most of those artist's have written songs of empowerment and hope.


Sam Cooke and "A Change Is Gonna Come"

Marvin Gaye and "Whats Going On"

Curtis Mayfield "People Get Ready"

Bob Dylan "Blowin In The Wind"

Isaac Hayes and "Soulsville"

Bobby Womack and "American Dream"

Michael Jackson/Lionel Richie "We Are The World"

John Mayer reminds me of a few of these artist's all wrapped up in one

He has the Soul of Marvin Gaye

The Directness Of Sam Cooke

and the Finesse of Curtis Mayfield.

I love this song..truly with all of my heart..i fell in love with it the first time i heard it and i am still in love with it.

The music is mellow and the way JM phrases the melody he wrote combined with the bells playing the hook it almost sounds like a lullaby.

There is a new version on a CD Called "YES WE CAN VOICES OF A GRASS ROOTS MOVEMENT" that has excerpts of President Barack Obama's speech in it that i love.

It sent chills through me to hear his speech in the song just as Dr. MLK Jr. sent chills through me while he was speaking in Bobby Womacks song "American Dream"

I wish J-May the best of success and i feel that "Waiting On The World To Change" will be the song that will define him and his career for years to come.

Mayer's music is terrific. I love listening to him sing and play ... especially the song "Gravity". Will buy more of Mayer's music when I can.

5.0 out of 5 stars great song January 17, 2014
Verified Purchase
I first heard this song on a tv show and have really liked it ever since that first time of hearing it . I would recommend it to anyone who likes rock music but not hard rock . Myers has a great voice and does an excellent job on this . My husband says it is an anti war song but if you can get past that I think you will like it ! Try it , if you like John Myers music I believe you will love this song !

I like many songs by John Mayer. This one really has a deep meaning. I specifically bought this one for a friend to listen to. She also loves it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too slow to convey an effective message October 22, 2013
John Mayer is a decidedly `hit or miss' kind of artist. He's a soft-rocker who would be more at home on the Adult Contemporary charts. But, his sex appeal makes him a mainstream darling. The tradeoff with that is that he has some songs that are too slow and plodding to be properly enjoyed by some.

"Waiting on the World to Change" is just such a song. It wants to inspire people as one of those socially conscious songs about current events. Some people view this song that way. However, the music is just too dull for me to care much about the message.

I love this song. I first heard it on Evan Almighty. I encapsulates how I feel about the world the way it is now.
