"As the World Falls Down" is a song from the movie Labyrinth.
David Bowie performs the song as the Goblin King, trying to seduce Sarah. After Sarah bites into an enchanted peach, she slips away into a dream world created by Jareth. In this dream, Sarah is dressed in a beautiful gown, pursued by Jareth at a Masquerade Ball. The two eventually meet, and dance together.
The track was to be released as a single but it was shelved at the last minute. A music video to accompany the single was also made and featured a girl, not unlike Jennifer Connelly (Sarah), who appears to be infatuated with Bowie. Although never released on any Labyrinth video or DVD, it can be found on the VHS and laserdisc "Bowie - The Video Collection" and the DVD "David Bowie - Best Of Bowie". It was also released to David Bowie's official YouTube channel but later privatized.
