Falco 1982

82-11-04 Falco

Austrian singer Falco is pictured on a back-page poster in Bravo 4 November 1982

That year Falco had a hit with Der Komissar (an English version by Into The Fire was also a hit).  The lyrics, with the Viennese patois, were pretty funny. Four years later Falco had a UK #1 hit with Rock Me Amadeus. He died on 6 February 1999, thirteen days before his 42nd birthday.

    This poster was to promote his follow-up single to “Kommissar” called “Maschine brennt”, which could be translated “Aeroplane on fire”.

      Thanks. “Maschine brennt” was quite a decent song as well.
