BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

“Junge Roemer (Young Romans)” is a 1984 single by Austrian pop/rock singer Falco. Junge Roemer a slang term popular in early/mid 1980s Germany and Austria, which was the equivalent of the English term, “Yuppie”. Falco popularized the term further with his song by the same name, which glamorized the Junge Roemer lifestyle (Falco counted himself among this group of people).

The song was a hit single in Austria #8 as well as in Switzerland #24, and most notably in Spain, where it peaked at #2. In the United States a set of remixes by John Luango were released on 12″ vinyl. “Junge Roemer (Young Romans)” debuted on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart on November 3, 1984 peaking at #52 after spending seven weeks on the survey.

Falco – Rock Me Amadeus (US 7″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 11th March 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

Side A

“Rock Me Amadeus” is a 1985 song by Austrian pop musician Falco from his album Falco 3. It topped the singles charts on both sides of the Atlantic. It was Falco’s only number one hit in both the United States and the United Kingdom, despite his popularity in Germany, his native Austria, and much of Europe. The song was written by Falco and Dutch music producers Bolland & Bolland.

The song is about the classical composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). Mozart was a child prodigy who performed his first musical tour at the age of five. His last three years were his most successful and he had an extremely excessive lifestyle. The basic concept is the suggestion that Mozart was the rock’n’roll rebel of his day. Some of the lyrics in “Rock Me Amadeus” reflect this. Here’s an English translation:

He was the first punk ever to set foot on this earth.
He was a genius from the day of his birth.
He could play the piano like a ring and a bell
And everybody screamed: Come on, rock me Amadeus
With a bottle of wine in one hand and a woman in the other
His mind was on rock and roll and having fun
Because he lived so fast he had to die so young
But he made his mark in history
Still everybody says: Rock me Amadeus

SIDE A:
Rock Me Amadeus (The American Edit) 3:10
