    While it's probably easy to throw Falco into the one-hit wonder category, he had at least 3 or 4 top 20 hits in the US and I think more songs than that in the Top 10 in several European countries. RMA hit #1 all over the world, which is why it's understandable to throw him in this category.


    Hits that I remember:
    Rock Me Amadeus
    Der Kommisar (which I think was a bigger hit when covered by "After the Fire" a year or two later)
    Vienna Calling
    The Sound of Muzik (sp?)
    Jeanny

    This did the rounds on radio too:

    Original Mirrors - Could This Be Heaven.
    ( later became The Lightning Seeds?)
