Formed within just few months in 1979, Dschinghis Khan was the product of the disco boom and following on the heels of other German-produced bands such as Boney M, Arabesque, and Silver Convention. Their songs were based on historical people and places. The group was formed by music producer Ralph Siegel AKA Mr. Eurovision. Siegel was apparently obsessed with making the next Music/{{ABBA}}. Their name is the German spelling of "UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan," the name of the song they sang in their introductory performance in the Eurovision Song Contest. While they didn't win Eurovision, the group achieved great success in Europe, Russia, Israel, Australia, and Japan.

* "Hadschi Halef Omar" - A song that gets away with saying [[TheProphetMuhammad Muhammad's]] name. (It's a homage to a fictional Muslim ''character'' -- namely, to Creator/KarlMay's probably most famous companion during his notional adventures in the Orient.)
