"He's So Shy" is a song recorded by American vocal group The Pointer Sisters for their seventh studio album Special Things (1980). Written, as "She's So Shy" and intended for Leo Sayer, in December 1979 by Tom Snow and Cynthia Weil, "He's So Shy" was released as the lead single from Special Things on July 23, 1980, by the Planet label.
"He's So Shy"'s fusion of classic girl group pop, new wave-styled dance music and R&B proved the right combination to effect a top-ten comeback for the sisters, the single reaching a peak of number three on the Billboard Hot 100 that October (it would hold that position during the same three weeks that "Woman in Love", by Barbra Streisand, held the number-one spot). "He's So Shy" set the prototype of the trademark Pointer Sisters sound which would afford the group its career peak in 1983–84 with their Break Out album.
