Rock Me Amadeus by Falco

Ooh rock me Amadeus
Rock me Amadeus
Rock rock rock rock me Amadeus
Rock me all the time to the top

He was a punker
And he lived in the big city
It was Vienna, was Vienna
Where he did everything
He had debts, for he drank
But all the women loved him
And each one shouted:
Come on and rock me Amadeus

[Chorus:]
Amadeus Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus Amadeus, oh oh oh Amadeus

He was a superstar
He was popular
He was so exalted
Because he had flair
He was a virtuoso
Was a rock idol
And everyone shouted:
Come on and rock me Amadeus

[Chorus]

Come on and rock me Amadeus

[Chorus]

It was around 1780
And it was in Vienna
No plastic money anymore
The banks against him
From which his debts came
It was common knowledge
He was a woman's man
Women loved his punk

[Chorus]

Baby baby do it to me rock me
Baby baby do it to me rock me
Baby baby do it to me rock me

Come and rock me Amadeus

Baby baby do it to me rock me
Baby baby do it to me rock me
Baby baby do it to me rock me
Yes yes yes

TO PETER SHAFFER... APPARENTLY ALL THE RADNESS HAS DECIDED TO LEAVE THE WORLD

I remember when this song was popular, so was 'Der Commissar' (don't turn around ah wah o)

Catchy song, and I also enjoyed it's parody version 'Armadillo, armadillo'

Openstage put on a version of 'Amadeus' a couple years back, great show.

RIP P. Shaffer

Ya gotta love the one hit wonders from the 1980's

~ Now as far as Ali goes, I've never been a boxing fan, but I always loved Ali

He was true class - RIP Ali

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee

I'll end this log with a Deep Thought:

Boxing is a lot like ballet, except there's no music, and the dancers hit each other

Yes I am a big advocate for more punching in ballet.

My nephew once told me "I loved the movie South Pacific... except for the singing and dancing. I fast forwarded through those parts."

Amadeus would have been happy to rock out to this song. Not sure what motivated the dude to write this song. I suppose he figured it would be cool.

Falco as Austrian. So was Wolfie. Falco died in the Dominican Republic. Wolfie didn't.
