BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985
Boy Meets Girl is an American pop music duo consisting of keyboardist and vocalist George Merrill and singer Shannon Rubicam. They are perhaps best known for their hit song “Waiting For a Star to Fall” from 1988. As songwriters, the duo composed a pair of #1 hits for Whitney Houston, “How Will I Know” and “I Wanna Dance With Someone (Who Loves Me)”. They also provided backing vocals on “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” by Deniece Williams.
The duo’s first album was self-titled, and its lead-off song, “Oh Girl”, a bitter tale of a failed relationship was released as a single by A&M Records. The song reached #39 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart on June 4, 1985.
