heyyy i think falco was great!!he must!!!!!!!

He is, by no stretch of the imagination, Rock and/or Roll (maybe if there was a "one hit wonder hall of fame")

Posted by toyologist on Thursday, 10.4.07 @ 16:21pm


You forgot that Falco wrote "Der Kommissar" and had another hit of his own with "Vienna Calling." "Der Kommissar" was the only hit for the British band After The Fire (which included former Yes guitarist Peter Banks)

Just because he hasn't been famous in america, doesn't mean that he did not have a big influence on music. In Europe and Asia he's been one of the best selling artists of the 1980's and for sure he has been one of the most talented at this time.

That's why I've been voting Yes.

Posted by **** Hall Of "Fame" on Monday, 12.22.08 @ 02:32am


Johann Hölzel, better known by his stage name Falco, was an Austrian, pop and rock musician and had four #1 Hits - "Der Kommissar", "Rock Me Amadeus", "Jeanny", and "Coming Home (Jeanny Part 2)". With "Rock Me Amadeus" he is the first and so far only artist to score a #1 Hit in the U.S. with a German language song. His albums and singles have sold about 80 million copies worldwide.
Falco must be inducted into the Hall of Fame!

"In Europa und Asien ist er heute noch ein gefeierter Pop-Superstar, obwohl er schon Jahre tot ist; seine Musik ist und bleibt einzigartig. Durch sein Musikalisches Werk hat Falco es geschafft, ewig zu leben!"

Posted by Robert B on Thursday, 12.31.09 @ 09:33am


"Rock Me Amadaeus" was in English... and I believe you're thinking of "99 Luftballoons" as that #1 song... that was by Nena, not Falco.

Posted by Philip on Thursday, 12.31.09 @ 11:23am


Falco is unique. I vote YESSSS !

Greetings to all European Fans!!

Posted by Steve Mills on Sunday, 01.3.10 @ 07:03am


Falco hatte immer schon 2 Seiten:

- Kunstfigur Falco: neurotisch, exzessiv, abgehoben - einer, der selbst auf Kollegen oft präpotent und unnahbar wirkte.

- Und das des privaten Hans Hölzel: sensibel, verletzlich, liebenswert

Es ist unumstritten, dass Falco ein einzigartiger Popstar ist!

Posted by Reinhard Kranz on Monday, 01.4.10 @ 11:35am


Il a une voix hypnotique. Ne parlons pas de son? sourire et et de son regard ravageur. Merci Falco de nous avoir laissé ce bel héritage de mélodies.

Il est une légende !!!

Als ich Falco mit seiner roten Uniformjacke das erste mal im Tv performen sah, da dachte ich mir "DAS IST EIN POPSTAR".
Das war das Lied Sound of Musik - Falco ist so cool, unnahbar und sexy, dass er jeden anderen Popstar blass aussehen lässt.

I love him !!!

Posted by Mandy Oberdorfer on Wednesday, 01.6.10 @ 06:02am


He is one of the most talented artists!

I agree that he is (was) unique. The problem is, of the above songs, the vast majority have only heard of the first two (if that many). Not exactly a one-hit wonder, but close enough.


Posted by Joe on Saturday, 01.9.10 @ 17:41pm


Following his breakthrough hit single "Don't turn around, the Commissar's in town" and the overwhelming success of "Come on and Rock me Amadeus," the first German language song ever to hit number one on the US Billboard Charts in March 1986, he proceeded with the alienation of empty notions by filling them with new life. In 1986 he used the Trapp family musical "The Sound of Music" for a song title, shortly followed in 1988 by the use of the Strauss-operetta "Wiener Blut (Viennese Blood)" for his own song composition. One of Falco's trademarks was his English-German-Viennese word mix. He had been ahead of his time as one of the first rappers, although some would call him stutterer instead. His arrogance was legendary!

With worldwide sales of over 80 million records in total, Falco would become the biggest-selling Austrian pop musician of all time. As one of his most quoted song lyrics puts it: "What's typical about me is, I'm untypical by all means."

I think Falco ist the European "King of Pop"

Rock Me Amadeus(「ロック・ミー・アマデウス」)は発売と同時にオーストリアでNo.1になり、アルバム『Falco 3』、続くシングルの「Vienna calling」(「ウィーン・コーリング」)、もオーストリアを始めヨーロッパ各地でヒットした。そして、86年の3月、アメリカでもリリースされた「アマデウス」は全米チャートで4週間連続トップを独走した。英語圏以外の出身アーティストによる外国語の歌が全米チャートで1位になったのは坂本九以来、史上2人目である。アルバム『Falco 3』も全米チャートで3位にランクされた。また、同年、WEA移籍後に発表された4作目のアルバム『Emotional』(「エモーショナル」)のリリースに伴い、ワールドツアーも行われた。86年12月にはツアーのために初来日を果たした。

86年のファルコの来日公演、実は私は観に行っているのです(ちなみに私が観たのは福岡公演)。しかも、会場の入りがいまひとつだったので、前の方の結構いい席で観る事ができました。もう、昔の話なので、当時の覚え書きや、来日当時の資料の助けを借りながら記憶を辿ってみることにします。

We love Falco !!

FALCO UNICO!! R.I.P

Posted by Liv on Wednesday, 01.13.10 @ 10:26am


Falcos musik war schon immer weit seiner Zeit voraus. Ich bin mir sicher wenn Falco damals den entschluss gefasst hätte nach Los Angeles zu ziehen, dann würden ihn die Amerikaner vergöttern. Für amerikanische verhältnisse hat er zu viel "Deutsch" gesungen, aber wie er einst sagte "entweder so, oder gar nicht!"

Würde Falco heute noch leben würde er vor 200,000 Leuten in Stadien spielen, weltweit. Was für Musik.

Mit ihm starb einer der größten Popstars den wie Welt hatte.

Jeder, der Falco nur ein bisschen kennt muss hier unweigerlich "YES" voten.

Falco, we´ll never forget you. R.I.P.
Your German Fans.

Posted by Theodor Gross on Wednesday, 01.13.10 @ 10:35am


Ich habe Falco immer bewundert wie er auf andere Menschen wirkte. Er hatte eine gewisse arroganz an sich aber das zu 100% nicht negativ - er stand immer irgendwie über den dingen. Selbst für Musikerkollegen wirkte er oft unnahbar.

Rein musikalisch finde ich das er im grunde seit den frühen 80ern einen gewissen Stil beibehalten hat - für mich war es schon immer unverständlich dass er in den 90ern nicht mehr so erfolgreich war wie in den 80ern. Seine Musik übertrifft einfach alles. Da könnten sich die aktuellen sogenannten "Popstars" mal n scheibchen abschneiden.

Falco is definitive unique !!

Posted by Stefan Wein on Thursday, 01.14.10 @ 09:36am


Falco was a great artist!
His music was huge in the North America as well as South America.

I like "Sound of Musik", "Emotional" and "Junge Roemer" ... and "Vienna Calling" ...and and and :-))
Super talented - he will be so missed!!!!!!!!!!!!

Falco, i love you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Mandy Lo. on Thursday, 01.14.10 @ 09:55am


@ Philip: nur weil im Lied "Rock me Amadeu" die englischen Wörter "Come on Rock me" vorkommen, ist das lied noch lange nicht in englisch!!!
Auch ist der Name Amadeus kein englischer, er leitet sich vom Deutschen Namen Gottlieb ab (belehre ich euch hiermit ;-) ).

Rock me Amadeus ist offiziell der erste Deutsch sprachige song der in den Billboard Charts ein Nummer 1 Hit war - Falco schrieb damit Popgeschichte.

Greetings from Germany

...why wasn't this man bigger in America?

Falco is amazing! Most of his songs were tbh. I wish they'd have his cds here. Ditto with any books/documentaries that were made about Falco. Not saying he has millions of fans in America but I'm sure he has enough fans to have this stuff here.

I love him - he is amazing...

POPSTAR FALCO

Posted by J. on Saturday, 01.16.10 @ 11:03am


@ Monika: Nur weil das Lied oft sang "Amadaeus", und "Amadaeus" eine deutsche Name ist, dass das Lied eine "deutsches Lied" nicht macht. Amadaeus is eine Name. Wir nennen ihn nicht die englische Meinung der Name "Amadaeus" (auch, glaube ich, es gibt keine englische Meinung der Name "Amadaeus"), aber das macht nicht das ganzes Lied "deutsches Lied". Die Geschichte der Leben des Mozarts is auch auf Englisch. Nur die Name "Amadaeus" ist in dem ganzem Lied auf Deutsch.

Vielleicht gibt es eine andere Lied (version?)... eine auf English fuer die Vereinigten Staaten und eine auf Deutsch fuer Europa. In der Vereinigten Staaten, nur Amadaeus is auf Deutsch. Alle sonst sind auf Englisch.

Auch, entschuldigen Sie mir mein Deutsch. Ich habe kein Deutsch seit achte Jahre studiert, und ich habe nur halb, was Sie sagen, verstanden.

It all has to do w/the power of the powdered wig...

Anybody rockin' the power of the powdered wig bespeaks the truth. Of course, since you are corresponding from the Rocky Mountain regions, where there is a distinct conflict of interest between substances (i.e. powder vs snow), you are forgiven for this transgression...

Seine Bühnenpräsenz war einfach phänomenal - ich habe ihn einmal live sehen dürfen und dieses Erlebnis hat sich in meine erinnerung gebrannt, wie keine andere. Gänsehaut pur! Falco Tour 1993,1994

Posted by Hans Kern on Wednesday, 01.27.10 @ 07:28am


Bei uns in Deutschland ist und war Falco schon seit 1982 ein Superstar. Er hatte in den 80er Jahren großartige Hits und in den 90er Jahren auch viele tolle Lieder. Er ist eine Legende!!

Wir vermissen ihn - er hinterließ in der deutschen Popwelt eine große lücke.

RIP

Posted by Daniel Maier on Wednesday, 01.27.10 @ 10:20am


Falco war einer der besten Musiker im Deutschsprachigen Raum, ein wahres Genie was Songwriting und Komposition anging. Seine Musik war abwechslungsreich, voller versteckter Botschaften und machte ihn unsterblich. Kein anderer Musiker heutzutage (jedenfalls aus Deutschland und Österreich) kommt an ihn heran, mit Falco verlor die Musikindustrie einen begnadeten Künstler und ich erwische mich manchmal, wie ich darüber nachdenke, was für geniale Songs er noch gemacht hätte... WE MISS YOU FALCO!

Posted by Keebord on Friday, 01.29.10 @ 12:04pm


Well, he died recently. Anyway, I'd like to know what the foreign language posts say. Probably about the same as what the Perryphiles say, but I'd still like an accurate translation.

Posted by Paul in KY on Friday, 01.29.10 @ 12:53pm


I thought he died 11 years ago?

Posted by Keebord on Friday, 01.29.10 @ 14:34pm


Falco was killed in a car accident in February, 1998. He was an interesting character....

Posted by Gitarzan on Friday, 01.29.10 @ 17:35pm


I like "Vienna Calling" and "Out of the dark".

I can't believe that more people (americans specifically) don't know who Falco was...

easily top ten artists of the 80's

its too bad that most of his american exposure was through crappy and usually nonsensical translations of his original tunes.

Posted by Ken on Sunday, 01.31.10 @ 04:31am


My bad on thinking he died recently. So I guess I don't know why we have had an infusion of Falcoites recently.

Posted by Paul in KY on Monday, 02.1.10 @ 06:25am

Awesome song, I wish we had heard more of his music like this in the USA! This song is super uplifting and puts me in a happy mood.

Hi !

For all European Fans: ich kenne Falco seit 1990, war damals mit meine Schulklasse in Germany und Schweiz. Falco lief damals immer im Radio mit dem Sound "Neo Nothing" - seitdem liebe ich Falcos songs und höre ihn fast täglich.

RIP

Posted by Steven on Tuesday, 02.2.10 @ 10:58am


He's one of the greatest rock personnality, has great songs, is very good looking.

I hope he will enter one day

...people still love him!

Posted by Sandy on Friday, 02.5.10 @ 10:16am


Falco - Neo Nothing

Ich sprech mich aus dafür -
Nimm die Luft weg und flieg durch die Tür
Was will mein Radar blos von Dir?

Am Screen erscheint nur schwer -
Die Minusdichte bedaure ich sehr
Hof' das Orientierungsfeuer her

Du meinst es wäre hier?
Im Overground ist kein Platz dafür
Das heisst: Kommando back zu Dir

Don't you know
It's the "NOTHING" I won't let you go
The "NEO" is a sample of your soul
Wir überholen und längst wieder
sind "POST OF ALL"

Du - den Klang der Farbe kennst nur Du
Colours folding all over you
'Cause you turn the black into the blue

Dann - fällt die Nummer aus der Wand
Fällt und liegt fest in deiner Hand
Wer ist die Schönste im ganzen Land?

Don't you know
It's the "NOTHING" I won't let you go
The "NEO" is a sample of your soul
Wir überholen und längst wieder
sind "POST OF ALL"

My theory is that it all has to do w/the climate changes around the world. As more people have been snowed in due to these changes, they have more time to ponder artists like Falco.

For instance, here in Philadelphia we have had close to 70 inches of snow this winter. The city is in a state of emergency, the National Guard has been called in, & I'm sitting here commenting on Falco.

And so I say to one & all, Rock Me Amadeus.

Hallo / hi to everyone.

Hier kurz eine mögliche erklärung warum Falco plötzlich wieder in allermunde ist. Vor kurzen wurden verloren geglaubte Songs von Falco gefunden und diese veröffentlicht. Darunter auch der No.1 Hit "The Spirit never dies".

Falco has actually a no.1 hit in Austria - "The spirit never dies"

That is awesome!!

Posted by Gerhard Herrers on Friday, 02.12.10 @ 11:09am


Falco war schon immer seiner Zeit voraus; einerseits war das "Pech" für ihn, denn er hätte zu lebzeiten viel mehr Tonträger verkaufen können, andererseits machte ihn dieser umstand zur legende. Erst nach seinem Tode erkannte man sein Genie und schlagartig verspürte man wie sehr er der Musikwelt fehlte.

Seine Texte sind Lieratur und sein Stil, Wiener Dialekt mit Englisch zu kreuzen ist einzigartig.

Er ist zweifelsohne einder der größten Deutschsprachigen Künstler in Europa.

Falco hat es durch seine Musik ein Denkmal gesetzt, durch das er ewig leben wird!

Posted by Franz Becker on Saturday, 02.13.10 @ 01:43am


Hi!

To Germany: Ich hoffe mein deutsch ist einigermassen gut. Ich war 1994 mit meine Eltern in Wien, Paris und Berlin. Mein Vater ist ein grosser Falco Fan und wir besuchten damals ein Konzerz. Ich weiss noch dass er eine ausstrahlung und eine buehnenpresenz hatte die einfach phänomenal war. Seitdem bin auch ich ein groser fan.

I love him - i miss him...

Schade für diese Leute!! Ich war 1993 bei der Nachtflug Tour dabei und bin seitdem ein riesen Fan. Falco hatte eine Bühnenpräsenz, eine Ausstrahlung und ein wirken auf sein Publikum wie ich es sonst nirgenst erlebt habe.

--> and now a little bit German (i try):
Liebe Leute so meine ich das Falco hundert mal mehr als "only" 60 Millions Tonträger verkaufen können, hätte er seine songs nur in english gesungen, aber er liebte sein land und sein sprache, das muss ma akzeptieren und mehr noch ihn zu gute halten denn gerade das machte ihn einzigartig!!!!!!!!!!!
Gibt es einen geileren Typen auf der Bühne???

Falco war/ist eine große Persönlichkeit, nicht zu vergleichen mit heutigen "Künstlern", die kaum untereinander zu unterscheiden sind.

Er war ein Gott unter den Musikern, schade dass er sich mitte der 90er in die Domrep zurückgezogen hat, aber es sei ihm vergönnt mit seinem vielen Geld auch mal einfach nur zu genießen...

Ich bewundere seine übermenschliche Art heute noch!!

Wir sehn uns...

Gegen Flaco kommt niemand an, schade um diesen intelligenten außergewöhnlichen Künstler! Gerade, weil er so ehrlich war und sich nix "geschissen" hat, war er jeden anderen in jeder hinsicht absolut überlegen!

Falco, du fehlst

Posted by Severina on Friday, 03.26.10 @ 11:13am


Hi everyone,

Ich war damals beim Donauinselfest 93` live dabei, und kann nur sagen, ich danke Gott dafür, das ich das sehen durfte......

Er ist einer der besten "Live Performer" die es gibt, oder geben wird, und dieser Mann hatte solch ein "Charisma" er hätte irgendwas singen können, und die Leute wären trotz strömendem Regen geblieben......

Coming soon: a Falco wax figure in Madame Tussauds Vienna.

Great !!

My favorite song is "Emotional"

oooh !!

A superb song and video from the legendary Falco. I am a Falco fan from Malaysia.

Posted by Sam on Wednesday, 03.31.10 @ 10:12am


In 1986, the album Emotional was released, produced by Rob and Ferdi Bolland (Bolland & Bolland). Songs on the album included "Coming Home (Jeanny Part 2)," "The Kiss of Kathleen Turner", and "Kamikaze Capa" which was written as a tribute to the late photojournalist Robert Capa. "The Sound of Musik" was another international success, and a Top 20 U.S. dance hit, though it failed to make the U.S. pop charts.

My favourite: Sound of Musik

I have the Cd and DVD from Amazon Germany

Great Falco !!

Ich war damals bei dem Symphonic Konzert 1994 in Wr. Neustadt dabei - mir kommen heut noch die Tränen wenn ich das seh - er war der genialste Musiker den Österreich je hervorgebracht hat!

In 1992, he made a mid sized comeback with Nachtflug, which went to Number 1 in Austria. The single "Titanic" remained in the charts for 18 weeks, the album for 17. For the first time in 6 years, Falco went on tour again. After that, he again concentrated more on his private life for a couple of years, until he had another hit with the Techno-style single "Mutter, der Mann mit dem Koks ist da" (1995), which was especially successful in Germany.

In 1996, Hans decided to leave his beloved Vienna behind and moved to the Dominican Republic, fleeing from the ever indiscreet media in Austria. After another single release in 1996 ("Naked"), he worked on his next (and, as it turned out, final) album. It was almost finished and supposed to be released under the title "Egoisten".

Sadly, Hans Hölzel died in a fatal car crash in the Dominican Republic on February 6th 1998. A coach ran into his Mitsubishi Pajero while he was coming out of a parking lot. The new album was released post-humously as Out Of The Dark. So far, two singles have been released: Out of the Dark" and "Egoist", both of them entered the charts.

In order to make the most of the temporary craze, there have been quite a few releases of Falco-related stuff: a couple of books, videos, a previously unreleased single in January 1999 (Push Push) and yet another Best Of album (The Final Curtain), as well as a collection of video clips.

RIP FALCO
Awesome Popstar

Falco war berühmt für seine Arrogante art, aber gleichzeitig war er irrsinnig charmant und kultiviert. Dafür liebten ihn millionen Fans und auch wenn nicht jeder seine Platten gekauft hat - gehört haben ihn alle!

Falco konnte sich niemend entziehen. Er war der inbegriff eines Popstars, der mit heutigen "Stars" nicht zu vergleichen ist. Einen wie ihn wird es nie wieder geben.

Falco, wir lieben dich !!

Falco hat so viele Menschen Weltweit beeinflusst, er ist zweifelsohne einer der größten Popstars. Vor allem im Deutschsprachigen raum ist Falco nicht wegzudenken.

Posted by Jason D on Monday, 04.19.10 @ 02:24am


Johann (Hans) Hölzel (19 February 1957 – 6 February 1998), better known by his stage name Falco, was an Austrian, pop and rock musician and had six #1 Hits - "The Kommissar", "Rock Me Amadeus", "Jeanny", "Coming Home (Jeanny Part 2)", "Vienna Calling", "Body next to Body (with Brigitte Nielsen) and "The Spirit never dies (Jeanny final)". With "Rock Me Amadeus" he is the first and so far only artist to score a #1 Hit in the U.S. with a German language song. His estate has sold 40 million albums and 20 million singles to date, which makes him one of the best selling European singers ever.

I love his songs !!!

Falcos musik war nicht 100% auf den Geschmack der breiten masse ausgelegt, sie war sehr eigen und speziell - und trotzdem oder vielleicht gerade dennoch verkaufte sich Falcos musik weltweit extrem gut.

Niemand hat Falco zu Falco gemacht, er war einzigartig. Mit seinem charisma das er an sich hatte kann bis heute kein anderer Popstar mithalten...

Posted by ZappiZZ on Friday, 05.7.10 @ 14:19pm


Hi!

I think Falco is unique!
In Europe and Asia he's been one of the best selling artists of the 1980's and for sure he has been one of the most talented at this time.

Falco was from Austria - i love Austria!!!

Posted by Gitarzan on Sunday, 05.16.10 @ 08:30am


Thanks for that comment Gitarzan, I must say that all these people making statements like "Falco is so underrated," "He deserves to be in," "Legendary" or "He must be in" without backing it up with any sort of proof has begun to get on my nerves. This is exactly why fans aren't allowed to vote who gets in and who doesn't

Is Falco dead??

Posted by Roadrunner on Sunday, 05.16.10 @ 10:29am


Falco died of severe injuries received from a collision with a bus in his Mitsubishi Pajero near the city of Puerto Plata, in the Dominican Republic on 6 February 1998, just two weeks before his 41st birthday. It was initially reported that the autopsy showed high blood levels of alcohol and cocaine, however this was later dismissed. At the time of his death, he was planning a comeback. He was buried in the Zentralfriedhof (Central Cemetery) in Vienna, Austria.

Where are all of this Falco votes coming from? This reminds me of the Coven page. Perhaps the oddest page on this site (1500 comments, really?). But seriously folks, is somebody rigging the voting here? There is no way Falco can have so many different fan websites out there in the cyber world where someone has put a link to this page and encouraged voting. If that is the case I believe half the people here probably think they are voting Falco into the RRHOF

Posted by Gis. on Tuesday, 07.6.10 @ 03:49am


I think some of the past inductees to the Hall Of Fame have proved that it is for much more than just rock-n-roll. In America, Falco may have been a one-hit wonder, but in Europe, he brought attention to Germany, Austria, and other parts of Europe who idolized him. He helped the proud people of those countries hold their heads up high and say "Our music matters too!" To the culture of Europe, he made a difference. Based on album sales, he made a difference. To me, an American fan, he made a difference.

Posted by Syd on Sunday, 07.11.10 @ 19:57pm


His style, specialy the way he was talking and playing with words and sounds was unique!

Falco died 10 years ago, the RIPs are getting pretty tiresome. Why don't you all head over to the Fugs' page and pay homage to a REAL rock 'n' roll legend/rebel/innovator, the late, great Tuli Kupferberg. RIP Tuli.

Posted by Jorg on Sunday, 07.18.10 @ 00:20am


Falco was definitely not a rocker...but if more people weren't lazy and actually dug into his vast catalog of songs you can see he wasn't a 'one hit wonder'. Maybe here in the US (I'm a Falco fan in the US) he was a one hit wonder but elsewhere he was a legend. Sure he sings in German but music is universal, if you let language be a barrier than you're not a true music lover. RIP to him and good day!

Posted by AJ on Wednesday, 07.21.10 @ 12:16pm


Falco ist noch immer der Monolith mit den Superlativa in der österreichischen Popgeschichte. Aus dem gewitzten Hans Hölzel formte er eine facettenreiche Kunstfigur mit bahnbrechender Wirkung. So war er der erste erfolgreiche weiße Rapper und schaffte es mit „Rock Me Amadeus“ als erstes und bisher einziges deutschsprachiges Lied die Spitze der US-Billboard-Charts. Bis zu seinem Ableben anno 1998 verkaufte er über 60 Millionen Platten.

Unerwartet gab es 2009 mit „The Spirit Never Dies“ einen starken Nachschlag. Die durch Zufall wieder gefunden Masterbänder aus dem Jahr 1987 wurden liebevoll in das digitale Zeitalter gerettet. Was damals als zu schwach bewertet wurde und damit in der Schublade landete, klingt heute im Vergleich zu anderen Werken der späten Phase durchaus akzeptabel. Diese Erfolge stammen von einem eigenwilligen Wiener Bassisten, der im Underground bei Bands wie der Hallucination Company oder Drahdiwaberl gerlernt hatte, zeitlebens seine Verbundenheit zu seinen Wurzeln demonstrierte. So sehr der „Falke“ mit Stimmungsschwankungen und wankelmütigen Aktionen seine Karriere immer wieder ins Wanken brachte, die Kraft des musikalischen Erbes steht ungebrochen in der vordersten Reihe Österreichischer Qualitäts-Arbeit eines besonderen Ausnahme-Könners.

Wenn man angesichts dessen was er geschaffen hat, heutzutage von irgendjemand hört das Falco ein - one hit wonder ist- dann fragt man sich leise wer das sagt, bestimmt jedoch keiner der Falco auch nur annähernd kennt, aber bestimmt jemand der zumindest ein Lied von ihm gehört hat :-)

Als, in diesem sinne liebe Freunde...

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 08.5.10 @ 11:47am


Watch what you're saying, Gassman. Falco was Austrian, not German.


Come to think of it, so were the Von Trapps. And Julie Andrews' character was called Maria. Coincidence?

Posted by The_Claw on Thursday, 08.5.10 @ 11:53am


@ Gassman:

The Scorpions haben zwar bislang mehr Platten als Falco verkauft und sind demnach logischerweise auch Weltweit bekannter, aber bestimmt nicht beliebter - das kann ich die als Deutscher verraten!!

Kraftwerk reicht keinesfalls an Falco heran, da war Falco doch um einiges besser.

Falco ging 1996 ins exil nach DomRep, weil ihn die "Austrian Press" ständig verfolgte, im grunde war Falco in Europa ständig präsent und das von 1981 bis 1996 - produziert hat er aber bis zu seinem Tod 1998.

SO BELIEVE ME: FALCO is the sound of music !!!

Posted by FRanK on Friday, 08.6.10 @ 09:45am


The song "Rock Me Amadeus" was in German... Just the chorus was in English and this song was the (and is still) only German song which was #1 in the US. Falco was a great musican and he made his own kind of music. And he's not a "one-hit wonder" he could have been more successfull but he didn't want to do concerts in the US. And the USA is not the whole world, in other countries he had a gread success. I'm thinking about Europe and Asia!

Falco was so talented but had such a great sense of humour too and enjoyed performing and acting and being fun and silly.
Such a great loss of talent - what a character!

He goes onto the street
doesn't say where to,
His brain's full of heavy Metal,
and his liver is gone
His veins are open,
and he reeks of formaldehyde,
but he doesn't worry
because he's in Vienna...

Posted by Sceneman on Sunday, 09.19.10 @ 10:44am


Falco was ahead of his time, a visionary.
He hit International charts with his music, filled stadiums, and wrote songs that will live on. How many musicians have been so well immortalized on The Simpsons?
He deserves this. He lives on.
Falco Forever. ♥

I didn't understand a word of this! however It was still nice to see him as a person. The impression I got was of a man who takes his music and art very seriously, but probably did not take himself too seriously,probably had a great sense of humour. ...and he was sooo gooood looking ;-)

What a tragedy he died so young!!

"In America, Falco may have been a one-hit wonder, but in Europe, he brought attention to Germany, Austria, and other parts of Europe who idolized him. He helped the proud people of those countries hold their heads up high and say "Our music matters too!" To the culture of Europe, he made a difference."

Hi!

Ich als Deutscher Falco Fan muss hier mal ein kommentar posten, dass ich auf einer Fanpage gefunden habe - ist richtig richtig geil und es passt 100% zu Falco...

Falco wollte gegen den Strom schwimmen, sagen was keiner sagen will und einfach seine Mucke machen. Damals angegeckt und heut von seinen damaligen Kritikern in die höchsten Töne gelobt sobald sein Name fällt.

Was ich damit sagen will ist das die besten immer erst nach ihrem Tod als Genies gefeiert wurden.

Und ich glaub Falco würd sagen:
"Jetzt wo ihr mir den Arsch küsst mach ich lieber was anderes, weil mir eure Liebhudelei zwar genehm ist aber nicht konform mit meinem Lebensstil"

...GENIAL ...like Falco was!

If you wouldn't think of stooping to the Abba, Michael Jackson or Backstreet Boys pop level, Falco remains a confident (if temporary) exception for die-hard Rock `n Roll fans.
Yes, still with a commercial edge incorporated to the sound, but nevertheless a good career representation of a man who certainly gave his most with the relatively short time he had to live.

Posted by Jackie on Tuesday, 01.4.11 @ 08:18am


Falco was a austrian german hip hop king, pop and rock star. His albums and singles have sold about 65 million copies worldwide - he was the first white rapper with commercial success!!

Posted by AtariST on Tuesday, 01.4.11 @ 10:16am


Very sad that he did not live to see the huge success he had with his last record. Looking back now having 'grown up' with his music, Falco deserved a lot more recognition...
Very charismatic man too!!

2.7.1998:
Austrian Pop Star Falco has a deadly accident Santo Domingo (AP) -Austrian pop star Falco died in a car accident in the Dominican Republic. As the Dominican police indicated on Saturday, the jeep controlled by the 40 year-old collided on Friday with a bus. The accident occurred on a road between the most popular tourist places of the Republic, Puerto Plata and Sosua.
Falco, which was the stage name of Johann Hoelzl, succumbed to the injuries in a hospital. The cause of accident was not immediately known. The bus driver was interviewed by the police; no charges were filed against him.
In the 80's Falco had a series of hits, including "Der Komissar", "Rock Me Amadeus", "Jeanny" and "Vienna Calling". The music was some of the first to be an individual mix of rap, rock, and disco music, in which synthesizer played a basic role. On February 19, he would have been 41 years old."

Posted by SanD on Tuesday, 01.11.11 @ 09:25am


FALCO was born as Johann Hoelzel on February 19, 1957 and died on February 6, 1998. He was an Austrian classical musician and turned to hip hop, pop, and rock. He sold over 60 million copies of his records worldwide. Falco was born in Vienna and was the only survivor of triplets. He graduated from Vienna Music Conservatory in 1977. He was a member of the groups Spinning Wheel and Hallucination Company. He was also a bass player in the punk rock band, Drahdiwaberl from 1978 until 1983. He wrote and performed the song Ganz Wien. This song was also included on his debut solo album, Einzelhaft.

Falco’s first big hit was, Der Kommissar, which was taken from the album, Einzelhaft, in 1982. His record was about drugs and was in German. It was a combination of rap and sung chorus. The song made it to number one in many countries but failed in the United States. The group, After The Fire, recorded an English Cover version of the song and this time it reached number three on the U. S. Charts in 1983.

Falco released a second album called, Junge Roemer, and the record was a hit in Austria and Germany but failed in other countries. Falco began to work on songs with English lyrics. This resulted in his releasing of his most popular and successful album and single of them all. In 1986 he released the record, Rock Me Amadeus and it reached number one in the United States and also a hit worldwide. It stayed in the Top Hot 100 Billboard in the United States for 3 weeks. His album called, Falco 3 reached the number 3 position on the Billboard Albums chart. Rock Me Amadeus made it to number one in over a dozen countries. His follow up single, Vienna Calling reached number 18 on the U. S. Billboard charts and number 17 on the U. S. Cash Box Charts in 1986. His double A- side 12" single, which featured re-mixes of those two hits, reached number 4 on the Dance/Disco charts in the United States. His 3rd single release from the album was called, Jeanny, and it also reached the top of the charts but some radio stations refused to play it because it was told from the point of view of a rapist and murderer. Falco went on to release other albums and singles.

In 1998, Falco died from injuries from a collision with a bus, near a resort called Puerto Plata. He would have been 41 on his next birthday which was only two weeks away.

Falco was buried in the Zentralfriedhof (Central Cemetery), in Vienna, Austria. --> Visit his grave - it is a fantastic magical place!
He released a total of 18 albums and 35 singles during his musical career.

Bought Falco 3, Emotional and Wiener Blut back in the 80s, when I was still at school, and collected the singles for a while. Didn't understand a word, still don't, but there are some great pop songs on those albums. And thanks to Youtube I've seen he did a fair few killer videos too!!! My favourite song is his last; "Out of the dark"
RIP Falco

Ahh I can't put it into words, he was a music genius and I cannot think of anyone who was his equel, I know he would think me crazy to say that but it is true. Also his personal coolness with the slicked back hair and the shades and his suits and the way he rolled his words of his tongue, every guy who wants to be cool should emulate him, the music world lost a genius!!

What does it mean? I think he was intentionally exposing a lot.

Falco, like others have the ability to re-create themselves anew over and over . One style fits as good as anyother on some people. Falco had his own photogentic mystique but many men in one. His Own Style that said "Top That !"
Just look at all his music videos - they are ALL awesome..

He is genius of music . I love his beautiful voice and charismatic look . His songs have spirit.R.I.P Falco . We miss you :)

Posted by KaterineStar on Sunday, 08.28.11 @ 08:59am


He was and still is awesome - he does not get the appreciation or credit that he should as an artist. I think Falco is unique; a great songwriter, a great performer.

Rock me Amadeus is my all time fav.

Posted by Siler on Friday, 09.23.11 @ 13:36pm


He was the first white rapper with commercial success and Rock me Amadeus was the first- and so far only song in german language on place 1 in the US billboard charts.

Falco was different, was unique, was something else. I think that people who reject him haven't actually stopped to listen to his music or watch him perform. He was ahead of his time. You may like him or not but he was a gifted musician, a stylish character, a very talented man.
I don't know whether he should or shouldn't be in this Wall of Fame, I don't think it's such a big deal, I mean, do all the artists that appear in the Wall deserve to be in it? I wonder....
But he is in my heart and forever will be. He was huge and even today, in 2011, 13 years after his tragic death, he is loved and rememberd and talked about; he has loads of fans all around the world who keep buying his Cd's and Dvd's. Last Saturday a statue of him -and in his honour- was unveiled in Gars am Kamp, his city in Vienna.
True success is meassured in the heart of the fans who, after all -without or without a Wall of Fame-are the only ones who keep the legend alive.

Influence: Can't find much on this, I guess he was influential on the german music scene? 10
Innovation: None.
Sales: 60 million sold according to hsi estate. 30
Critical: Not rally, they didn't really care about him. 5

45, no.

Posted by Penny on Friday, 10.21.11 @ 10:11am


He is - and will always be brilliant! Through infinity and beyond, Falco is unmatched! RIP, my love!

Posted by Atraoviso on Tuesday, 11.1.11 @ 09:42am


It's hard to take your eyes off of him - there was something unique and so magnetic about him!
Falco was a great performer on stage!

Back when pop stars used to have talent. Why cant we have falco, kurt and micheal jackson, instead of crap like katy perry or rihanna or crappy autotuned manafactured pop stars??

Posted by AngusT on Tuesday, 11.8.11 @ 13:54pm


To GFW: look at Wikipedia or at youtube! He had more influence to the pop world than you know!!
I wasn´t really a fan, but i liked his music and style..

Falco created in the 80´s with his TV-show "Helden von Heute" the first Longform-Video in german spoken popmusic.

I actually used to not be the biggest fan of the Austrian/German language. Just always seemed so different to me growin up. But boy,he has a way of makin a girl melt when he sing or talks!!

Falco i miss you!

Posted by Linda32 on Saturday, 12.17.11 @ 07:43am


If he crossed over to the usa I think he would have been up there with Elvis Presley.

He should have had a better manager!!

Posted by Mingo on Tuesday, 12.27.11 @ 13:29pm


He is number 4 of the top 10 European Artists of the 80´s, but... highly underrated!

Posted by Tremo on Tuesday, 01.24.12 @ 13:49pm


I agree! I get so annoyed when Falco is referred to a "one hit wonder" over here in the US, and yeah, Lady Gaga can only wish to be this talented, shocking, and groundbreaking.
Most underrated musican, songwriter & popstar ever!!

He rocked the world, Falco eyyyy !!!!!!!!

Posted by AllanDanielle on Wednesday, 01.25.12 @ 13:36pm


right, what the hell did falco do that was so shocking?

Posted by GFW on Wednesday, 01.25.12 @ 15:47pm


I think his song Jeanny was meaned? ..a number one hit in numerous European countries. Several feminist associations called for a boycott of the song. Some TV and radio stations in Europe and Russia agreed and didn't play the song "for ethical reasons", while others just played it on their charts shows.

Posted by Lotus on Friday, 01.27.12 @ 13:57pm


I can't believe it's been over 13 years since his fatal car crash. I still remember it, and his funeral on Valentine's Day, quite clearly, it was shocking... I admired his unconventional style as a teenager, loved his music, and still live on some of his songs..

Love him or hate him!! ..if we, his fans, want and could to give him at least one year of our lives, he would live long and well to delight us with his music and his voice unmatched.

Posted by Tom on Sunday, 04.22.12 @ 14:17pm


Who else makes music like him today? No one.
