“I Wonder” is an emotional anthem that deals with the introspective themes of ‘finding your dreams come true.’ Revered amongst fans, the song was inspired by U2’s “City of Blinding Lights.” Kanye had joined the Irish rock band on tour in 2005 and was envious of the stadium ovations U2 would receive when opening concerts. This led to West aiming for ‘stadium status’ on Graduation, combining grandeur with melody—the soulful piano that appears throughout the track is sampled from Labi Siffre’s 1974 folk-rock record, “My Song.”
