American duo George Merrill and Shannon Rubicam achieved their biggest success with this single, which reached #5 in the U.S. and #9 in the UK. Lifted from their second studio album Reel Life (the first was self-titled) the song was a one hit wonder in the UK, but one of two Top 40 hits in America, the other being Oh Girl which reached #49 in 1985.

The follow-up single to Waiting For A Star To Fall was Bring Down The Moon, which peaked at #49 during 1989. A reissue of Waiting For A  Star To Fall reached #76 in the UK in 1991, and this featured as the closing track to the movie Three Men and a Little Lady.

Merril and Rubicam also penned hit singles for Whitney Houston, Deniece Williams and Bette Midler during the 80s.
