4 Rock Me Amadeus - Falco

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Metal_Treasure

It makes so sad that most people that are not from Austria will not know the brilliant, extravagant and often intense musician and personality Falco was. Songs like "Ganz Wien" (about Vienna's drug consumption), the gritty "Auf der Flucht" or the melancholically powerful "Out of the Dark" are just some of many amazing and gripping pieces of music that he made.
What's his only internationally famous song? A silly bubblegum pop song about Mozart where wore a crazy wig in the music video. Imagine if "The Laughing Gnome" was David Bowie's only major international hit outside of Britain, and you'll remotely know how I feel like with Falco. - Martin_Canine

I get your point, Martin. But the songs you mention have no musician name in the title and can't be on this list.
However, for some reason this is the Falco song that became an international hit. And neither you nor me had control over it. - Metal_Treasure
