"Falling and Laughing" is the debut single by Scottish post-punk band Orange Juice. It was the first single released by the independent rock label Postcard Records. "Falling and Laughing" marked a new shift of the post-punk sound in genera, by using themes that were not normally used in the genre: such as love and innocence. It also had a brighter sound, contrasting with the music that their contemporaries, (including Joy Division and Echo & the Bunnymen), were making at the time, while still maintaining its roots in the experimentalism of the genre.
