Biography

Hailing from Philadelphia, PA, Pretty Poison started out as a new wave outfit in 1981. Fronted by the diminutive and gorgeous Jade Starling, they signed to Svengali Records 1n 1982, and enjoyed regional success, especially with the regional dance hit “Nighttime.” Their music in the early part of the 1980’s was dark and atmospheric, sounding nothing like the dance pop which was to follow.

However, in 1987, Pretty Poison signed to Virgin Records. With heavy MTV exposure, “Catch Me, I’m Falling” became a top ten U.S. Billboard Hot 100 hit, peaking at number eight. The song also went to number one on the dance chart, as well as being featured in the film “Hiding Out.” The B-side contained a shorter Spanish vocal. A re-recorded version of “Nighttime” became their second Hot 100 hit, climbing to number thirty-six.

Pretty Poison had several more dance chart entries, the most recent being a new version of “Catch Me (I’m Falling)” which hit number forty-three in 1998.

    "Catch Me (I'm Falling)" was only used on the single so I think we should stick with "Catch Me I'm Falling" which is used on the album. :)

    Stumbled over their "No Tears" cover by accident ... the cover is awesome. Other songs of this band seem to be pretty good, too ...

    > Should it be "Catch Me I'm Falling" or "Catch Me (I'm Falling)"? I think the latter is correct.

    Catch Me (I'm Falling) is one of the best songs of all time.
