"Waiting for a star to fall"
Last week, a song came on the radio that brought back a lot of old memories from my high school days. You know, the Stone Age!
Anyway, it was by a one-hit-wonder husband/wife duo called "Boy Meets Girl."
You socks are no doubt familiar with the one hit: "Waiting for a Star to Fall."
But, there are some other pretty good songs on the self-titled album, too.
I used to play it over and over again in the cassette deck of my old 1979 Honda Civic as I scooted around the dirt and cotton fields of West Texas. So many times in fact, that the tape wore out and the lyrics became warped and I eventually had to trash it.
Fortunately, nowadays, folks like me who are still lost in the 80s can now get the soundtracks to their youth on CD!
Mine arrived today, and I've really been enjoying the good non-warped quality of the sound. And, something I almost forgot: I no longer have to sit thru a song I don't like. I can just hit the "skip" button on my CD-player. Back in the day, you either had to endure it or try to time your "fast forward" button just right, and that was next to impossible.
Anyway, if there's anything that's better than modern technology, it's an old song on the radio . . ."
I Can't Stop!

"I still love this album after all of these years. Me & a friend listened to the album more times then I can remember on a long drive years ago. "Waiting For a Star to Fall" still haunts me and I can *never* listen to it enough to get sick of it. Call me a fool, but I can listen to this whole album over & over again without getting bored. It is still as fresh as the first day I heard it. Man, what happened to Boy Meets Girl?"
