“Fall Down” is a single by alternative rock band Toad the Wet Sprocket. The song is included on their 1994 album Dulcinea. “Fall Down” was co-written by Glen Phillips and Todd Nichols. The music video for the song was directed by Samuel Bayer. The song was featured in the film Drop Zone.
Dulcinea is an album by Toad the Wet Sprocket released in 1994. It is their fourth studio album with Columbia Records and the follow-up to their popular album fear, which was released in 1991. Two songs from Dulcinea reached Top 40 designation on the Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts: “Fall Down” and “Something’s Always Wrong”. Dulcinea was RIAA Certified Gold on September 1, 1994, and Platinum on July 31, 1995.
The album’s name is a reference to the love interest in Miguel de Cervantes’ classic Spanish novel, Don Quixote. At least two songs on the album allude to themes found in the novel. “Crowing” is a song about a person who does not know how to hold on to a lover. “Windmills” is a metaphorical song about how people spend much of their lives chasing absurd or impossible pursuits (the allusion being to a specific scene in Don Quixote where the title character uselessly attacks a windmill).
Dulcinea also delves into some spiritual themes. “Fly from Heaven” is sung from the perspective of James, who is portrayed as Jesus’ literal brother and is upset by Paul’s manipulation of Jesus’ word. “Begin” and “Reincarnation Song” each explore questions about death and the afterlife.
It reached number one on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart in June 1994 and remained there for six weeks before being supplanted by The Offspring’s “Come Out and Play” in July. The single helped to make Dulcinea Toad the Wet Sprocket’s first top 40 album on the Billboard 200.
