Radio XX, side A, track 5: “Waiting For A Star To Fall” by Boy Meets Girl, #84 on The Top 88 of ’88

Boy Meets Girl - Waiting For a Star To FallOh, Boy Meets Girl, so good to hear from you again!  I’m so proud of you kids making it into the year-end roundup of awesome tunes for 1988.  True, it would have been great to see this one a little higher, but it was a pretty tough field that year, ya know.  Very tough competition.  Regardless of your chart position, it was just great to be able to record this one again and of course listen to it again.  And again.  And yet again.  Can’t get enough of this song, Boy Meets Girl, it’s just a great pop song that perfectly captures that terrible/wonderful longing feeling as you wait for “the one” to come into your life or as you gaze longingly at some girl who just doesn’t know she’s “the one” yet but you know in your heart that some day you will be her prince and she will continue to be a shining star, only she’ll be your shining star.  Mm mm mm.  It’s ridiculous how much this song makes me feel like a teenager again.  And reminds me of why I’m glad I’m not one anymore.

“Waiting For A Star To Fall”

I hear your name whispered on the wind
It’s a sound
That makes me cry

I hear a song blow again and again through my mind
And I don’t know why

I wish I didn’t feel so strong about ya
Like happiness and love revolve around ya
Tryin’ ta catch your heart is like
Tryin’ ta catch a star

So many people love ya, baby
That must be what you are

Waiting for a star to fall
Carry your heart into my arms
That’s where you belong, in my arms, baby, yeah

Waiting for a star to fall
Carry your heart into my arms
That’s where you belong, in my arms, baby, yeah

I’ve learned ta feel what I cannot see
But with yoooooou
I lose that vision

I don’t know how to dream your dream so I’m all caught up in superstition

I want to reach out and pull ya to me
Who says I should let a wild one go free
Tryin’ ta catch your heart is like
Tryin’ ta catch a star

I can’t love you this much, baby
And love you from this far

Waiting for a star to fall
Carry your heart into my arms
That’s where you belong, in my arms, baby, yeah

Waiting for a star to fall
Carry your heart into my arms
That’s where you belong, in my arms, baby, yeah

(Waiting)
(However long)
I don’t like waiting
(I’ll wait for you)
It’s so hard waiting
(Don’t be too long)
Seems like waiting (waiting)
Makes me love you
Even more-woah!

<awesome Boy Meets Girl jam>

Waiting for a star to fall
Carry your heart into my arms
That’s where you belong, in my arms, baby, yeah
(Yeah)

Waiting for a star to fall
Carry your heart into my arms
That’s where you belong, in my arms, baby, yeah (yeah)

Waiting for a staaaaarrr!
Carry your heart into my arms
That’s where you belong, in my arms, baby, yeah (yeah)

Ohh, waiting for a star to fall
Carry your heart into my arms
