"Fallin'" is a collaboration between hip hop trio De La Soul, and Scottish alternative rock band Teenage Fanclub, released in early 1994.

The song was recorded for the soundtrack to the action film Judgment Night, which featured other collaborations between well-known rock, metal and hip hop groups.

The chorus was sampled from the song "Free Fallin'" from Tom Petty's 1989 solo album Full Moon Fever.

The "Fallin'" music video was directed by Josh Taft. It features De La Soul and Teenage Fanclub wandering the hallways and classrooms of a high school while children dressed as angels dance around during a school play.
