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.

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.

"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.

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!

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。

espectacular cancion de falco..y no se desafina para nada!XD..buenisiam
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!"
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.

@ 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.

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!

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.

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.

Yes, i like Falco Symphonic too
Posted by Jo22 on Friday, 04.2.10 @ 10:02am
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.

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.

I have no way of proving this but I'm convinced that it's the same person posting this stuff, because there is no way that Falco had this large a following.
Posted by Chalkie on Thursday, 06.3.10 @ 14:29pm
I was wondering the same thing, I can understand the large amount of comments in German since Falco is from Austria and all, but there is no way he was that popular anywhere else.

FALCO was a punker, a rocker, a great musician, played lots of instruments, wrote great songs and lyrics, and no song was similiar to another, every song has its own style!

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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 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!!

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

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.

Falco created in the 80´s with his TV-show "Helden von Heute" the first Longform-Video in german spoken popmusic. He was also the first continental popmusican who knew to use the signs of the international video-clip-culture for himself and formed with world-wide.

My favourite song is Garbo (heared on the radio last year in France).

He had a HUGE influence on breaking foreign language artists through in america... As well as a massive influence overseas... Falco should be inducted (R.I.P.) such a talent gone too soon.

Falco was a truly great artist. His Symphonic is magnificent, especially Monarchy Now and Dance Mephisto. what a performer! he flashed across the skies, blazing like a comet. he was truly one of a kind, His voice could be mocking, teasing caressing, slightly mad to very crazy, He was larger than life. when he performed, he was in total command. I wish he were still alive. He was such a great talent, but like many musical geniuses, totally self destructive. Falco, I will always love you. You were a True Superstar. I hope you and Mozart have good talks in heaven!
Posted by Bevvy on Saturday, 01.17.15 @ 09:50am
one of the greatest Austrian musicians of all times. Such talent! he was a bright comet that flashed across the sky, and gone to soon, RIP, Hans, You are immortal.--ans smooth as silk.
