Fab Falco Flubs Faux

For all his apparent madness, the late Austrian wacko-pop star Falco certainly had an original sound. Heck, "Rock Me Amadeus" helped to define the '80s musically. There are some other gems, too, lesser known in the US (check out "Ganz Wien," about the Viennese party scene). True, he would occasionally devolve into lame impressions: "Macho Macho" is perhaps the worst fake Bowie song of all time. Still, I say Prosit, Falco, und immermehr in Ruhe schlafe!
