People fall for and into all sorts of things, as this list of songs about falling tells us. Love, fear, hate, redemption; these are all feelings that put people into emotional freefalls. Sometimes a song about falling is about failure, about falling down and attempting to pick ourselves up. Whatever incarnation the term “falling” takes, it’s ripe for musical and lyrical interpretation, as seen in these great falling songs. Tumble into this list and see where you land.

“Free Fallin’” is one of Tom Petty’s best known songs, with evocative imagery about “free fallin’” through his past, and out over the sprawl of Los Angeles. Duran Duran wrote their single “Falling Down” in collaboration with Justin Timberlake, Timbaland and Danja.

“The Sky is Falling” is a popular term for groups to turn into a song title. Queens of the Stone Age, Hall & Oates, Insane Clown Posse and Ian Gillian all have songs with the phrase in the title.
