Rock Me Amadeus ~ Falco

One of my favorite songs of all time!

Falco has the distinction of being the first and only artist to date whose principal language was German to score a #1 hit in the United States with "Rock Me Amadeus".

The song "Rock Me Amadeus" became a worldwide hit in 1986, reaching #1 in the US and the UK and his album, Falco 3,  peaked at the number three position on the US Billboard album charts.

 Falco died of severe injuries received from an auto accident in 1998, just two weeks before his 41st birthday.

The song featured in my video is the extended version . . . the video is not complete, but the entire song is included.  I'll repost the final version when I finish the video.
