Catch Me I'm Falling is the 1988 official debut album (second album overall after the Laced EP) by the American group Pretty Poison, who consisted of Jade Starling and Whey Cooler. It contains the title track "Catch Me (I'm Falling)", which was a top ten hit in the U.S. and also hit number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart the previous year. The second single off the album was a remix of their 1984 dance hit "Nighttime" which references Whodini's 1984 song "Freaks Come Out at Night" and was a top forty hit in May 1988. The third single, "When I Look into Your Eyes", peaked on the dance chart in September of the same year.
