Music sample

"Falling into You" is a 1994 single by Argentine singer Marie-Claire D'Ubaldo, which was her biggest hit. A Spanish version, called "Y Caigo un Poco Más," was also recorded. The song subsequently became the title track from Celine Dion's 1996 hit album Falling into You, released as the first single in Europe and Australia on February 19, 1996. In other parts of the world "Because You Loved Me" was released as the lead track.

The song reached number 1 in Spain and in Greece, and became a top 10 hit in Norway (number 8) and in the UK (number 10). The single has sold 170,000 copies in the UK and 165,000 in France, where it remains undercertified (should be silver).[1]

This song became part of 1999 All The Way... A Decade of Song (Australian edition), 2000 The Collector's Series Volume One and 2008 My Love: Ultimate Essential Collection (European edition) complication albums.

American singer Belinda Carlisle recorded a version of "Falling into You" for possible inclusion on her 1996 album A Woman and a Man, but reluctantly gave up on the song after a disagreement with Miles Copeland.[2]
