Falco – Rock Me Amadeus

This was a bit of a departure for me. In a more Euro-friendly, why-not-try-something-different vibe, I bought Falco’s Rock Me Amadeus. ‘Ooh, Rock Me Amadeus.’

This was an absolutely huge world wide hit in English and German speaking countries. It made #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and was also a number one in the UK singles chart – thus making him the first Austrian to have a UK number 1 single.

In a pointless piece of pop trivia, I feel obliged to tell you that Rock Me Amadeus was succeeded at number 1 in the UK singles chart by Spitting Image with their Chicken Song.

Sadly, Falco died in a car accident in the Dominican Republic in February 1998. Ruhe in Frieden.
