A post about Falco
Last night, as my husband was making dinner and listening to the 80's channel on Sirius, the Falco hit "Rock Me Amadeus" came on the radio. And he reminded me, that a few weeks ago when we had our false-start spring, we were on a walk, and one of those low rider, pimped out cars passed us with a couple guys in it and they were BLASTING "Rock Me Amadeus" with the bass booming and everything. It was pretty amusing to see a couple of playas rock out to some Falco.

In preparing to write this post, I googled the song to see if I could find the lyrics, particularly the U.S. remix version where he lists all the great accomplishments of Mozart's life... culminating in my favorite part of the song...

1756, Salzburg, January 27, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is born
1761, at the age of five Amadeus begins composing
1773, he writes his first piano concerto
1782, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart marries Constance Weber
1784, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart becomes a free mason
1791, Mozart composes "The Magic Flute"
On December 5th of that same year, Mozart dies
1985, Austrian rock singer Falco records... ROCK ME AMADEUS (AMADEUS AMEDEUS ... echoes)

Only in the 80's. They just don't make em like this anymore.
