Additional information about this, Boy Meets Girl vinyl art.

Boy Meets Girl – The Artist

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 and for writing two of Whitney Houston’s number one hits: “How Will I Know” and “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)”.

Waiting For a Star to Fall – The Song

Waiting For a Star to Fall is a song by American pop music duo Boy Meets Girl in 1988, written by the duo’s members, Shannon Rubicam and George Merrill. They wrote the song after witnessing a falling star at a Whitney Houston concert and originally offered the song to Houston, but Arista Records CEO Clive Davis rejected it. American singer Belinda Carlisle then recorded the song but denied its inclusion on her 1987 album Heaven on Earth, so Rubicam and Merrill decided to record and release the song themselves.
“Waiting for a Star to Fall” was released in June 1988 as the second single from Boy Meets Girl’s second studio album, Reel Life (1988). The song became a chart hit in several countries, reaching number five on the US Billboard Hot 100, number two in Canada, number five in Ireland, and number nine in the United Kingdom. Since its release, it has been remixed and covered by many artists, including Cabin Crew and Sunset Strippers, who experienced concurrent success with their reworkings in 2005. After the song was used as the closing theme to the 1990 movie Three Men and a Little Lady, the single was re-released with a new picture sleeve featuring the actors of the film. 

The five-pointed Star – The Shape

This record is modelled into a five pointed star. A star is type of astronomical object consisting of a luminous spheroid of plasma held together by its own gravity. The nearest star to Earth is the Sun. Many other stars are visible to the naked eye from Earth during the night, appearing as a multitude of fixed luminous points in the sky due to their immense distance from Earth.
