Waiting for a star to fall - Boy meets girl

I heard this song for the first time last year, twenty years after its release. It appeared regularly on the show 'Secret songs', which is presented by Kim Wilde on Magic FM in the UK. Magic FM actually doesn't broadcast abroad, but a kind friend from the UK has been sending me a recording of every show for months now.

Boys Meets Girl consists of George Merrill and Shannon Rubicam. 'Waiting for a star to fall' was their most successful single, taken from their second album 'Reel life'. It peaked at number 9 in the UK and number 5 in the USA. The song was originally written by the duo for Whitney Houston, but she rejected it. Belinda Carlisle did record a demo of the song while she was recording her 'Heaven on earth' album, but it didn't make the album.
