SATURDAY’S SCOTTISH SINGLE (Part 109)

Fallin'_single

Possibly the only time this series well feature an input from a hip hop act formed in Long Island, New York.

Fallin’ is a collaboration between De La Soul and Teenage Fanclub. Released in March 1994, it was recorded for the soundtrack to the action film Judgment Night and it reached #59 in the UK singles chart, which was marginally lower than TFC’s previous single, Norman 3, which reached #50 in September 1993.

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