With this Hit, Falco has made chart history: it is the only German-language Hit to date to climb both the top position of the American Billboard Charts and the British Top 40. That the Hit also went to Number 1 in Germany and in Falco’s home country Austria is almost self-evident. But that’s not all: Falco also became the first white man to enter the American Black music Charts with a”Rap” Hit. There it reached at least Place 6. this record was valid at least until the appearance of Eminem in 2002.

The content of Falco puts his “rock idol” Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in the world of the 80s. So he makes him an early Punk of the Austrian music history. In addition to the Dutch producer duo Rob Bolland and Ferdie Bolland, Falco also personally co-wrote the lyrics. The Hit is immortalized in Austria, with a Graffito. It is a Collage of Falco and Mozart, and emblazoned in the “Falco’s staircase” chain bridge road in Vienna. By the way: that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – as claimed in the Text – was in debt is a historical fact. After moving to Vienna, he accumulated a large amount of debt and regularly borrowed money from friends. In the Video by Rudi Dolezal and Hannes Rossacher, Falco takes the place of a modern Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in Vienna.
