Roadhouse singer

Julee Cruise singing "Falling"

"Falling" was a song by Julee Cruise.

History Edit

On the night of February 24, 1989, Cruise performed "Falling" at the Roadhouse in Twin Peaks, Washington.[1]

Behind the scenes Edit

"Falling" is a song composed by Angelo Badalamenti with lyrics by David Lynch, originally recorded by Julee Cruise for her debut album Floating Into the Night. The instrumental version of "Falling" was used as the opening theme for Twin Peaks and its 2017 continuation.

Cruise, as the Roadhouse singer, performs "Falling" in the pilot episode. The instrumental version recurs throughout the series and in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me.

When Cruise originally recorded the song, she was told to think about the person she loved most. She later admitted that rather than thinking about her husband, she thought about her cocker spaniel, Rudy.[2]

In 2017, Chrysta Bell released a cover version of the song.[3]

LyricsEdit

Don't let yourself be hurt this time
Don't let yourself be hurt this time

Then I saw your face
Then I saw your smile

The sky is still blue
The clouds come and go
Yet something is different
Are we falling in love?

Don't let yourself be hurt this time
Don't let yourself be hurt this time

Then your kiss so soft
Then your touch so warm

The stars still shine bright
The mountains still high
Yet something is different
Are we falling in love?

Falling
Falling
Are we falling in love?
