Music: Falco
"Ein scharf gekleideter Mann."note 

In the New Wave 80's, Austria's Johann "Falco" Hölzel became a One and a Half Hit Wonder with "Der Kommisar" (After The Fire's English-language cover was more popular), followed by the worldwide hit "Rock Me Amadeus." - in the US at least, for, while he was more consistently popular in German-speaking countries, follow-up songs (e.g. "Vienna Calling") were, at best, modest hits in the US.

Along with Nena's "99 Luftballons," he introduced (mostly) German-language songs to an English-speaking audience; the difference was that Nena sang, while Falco rapped.
