"Falling into You" is title track from Celine Dion's 1996 hit album Falling into You, released as the first single in Europe and Australia on 19 February 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][2]

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: Essential Collection (European edition) compilation 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.[3]
