Falco's greatest hits

    I'm sort of partial to "Rock Me Amadeus" myself.

    Now that's funny.

    What about Der Karmissar? Or was it Der Komminsk, the ballad about the Braves prospect who never was? Whatever.

    Anyway, after further reflection, I have decided the soundtrack to 7th grade was "Knee Deep In The Hoopla." We built this website! We built this website! We built this website on big-dicked Asian male whores rock and roll HOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!"

    I'm surprised someone doesn't have five Falco songs on their iPod list on that thread. Some obscure shit on there; apparently, people won't admit to listening to hit songs, or at least songs that are widely known.

    Wasn't Der Kommisar by After the Fire or something like that?

    Yeah but I'm almost sure Falco was that band's lead singer.
  6. No, "Der Kommisar" was done by two different bands. After the Fire did the English version, and Falco did the German version.

    Falco also did for the song a video that might be the worst in MTV history -- him running in place in front of a film of a police car, sirens ablaze, driving through the streets of Vienna or some such place, giving the illusion that Falco was being chased by it. Yuck.

    Had the occasion to buy Falco's Greatest Hits CD whilst in Vienna a few years ago. Now that was 15 Euros well spent, let me tell you.

    This will not end well.

    At the rate this thread's going, it's only a matter of time before someone starts waxing rhapsodic over Nena and "99 Luft Balloons," or, worse yet, Rammstein. ::)

    I liked Peter Schilling ("Major Tom"), but he was Austrian.

    G'day mate!

    What, no love for "Puttin' On The Ritz" by Taco?

    He's no Golden Earring, that's for sure.

    Radar Love or Twilight Zone? I actually like both.
