Steve Forbert (b. 1954, Meridian, Mississippi) achieved fame for his song Romeo's Tune, which reached #9 on the Billboard chart in 1980. The song, although "dedicated to the memory of Florence Ballard" on the sleeve of the album Jackrabbit Slim, is not about Supremes singer Ballard who died in 1976. "Forbert admits that Ballard became a timely connection for "Romeo's Tune", written about a girl from Meridian. "That seemed like such bad news to me and such sad news. She wasn't really taken care of by the music business, which is not a new story"
