"Falling" is the first single from Julee Cruise's 1989 debut album Floating into the Night. The instrumental version of the song became more well known as the theme for the cult television series, Twin Peaks, and won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental.
The song itself reached number 11 on the Billboard Modern Rock charts, number 7 in the UK, and number one in Australia. A remixed version was also released. It is arguably the most successful (at least in commercial terms) of any song of the dream pop genre. The genre is generally viewed as not radio friendly hence commercially accessible. Even now the song is featured on well over 50 compilations and is widely viewed the pinnacle of Julee Cruise's career.
