Due to the extremely poor coverage Falco got in the UK it was only a year ago that i found out that he died!!! This made me feel quite sad as his songs are classics from my childhood.Can anyone provide us with any info like how he died or how old he was or does anyone know of a website where i can find this information.

Falco died in a car crash on the 6th of February 1998 in the Dominican Republic.

well, I was pleasantly surprised when I purchased the Rock Me Amadeus 12" vinyl and it had a mix of Vienna Calling on the other side!!!!

Oh, that was a while ago.
Schade... would have been interesting to hear his music today...
Or did he stop making music in the 80´s??

Falco made music up until his death. In fact he just finished his last album before he died. It came out shortly after with the title "Out of the dark". If you want to know more about Falco this is the best page I´ve found about him: http://www.falco-calling.com/

The last album "Out of the dark" is realy GREAT!!!

If Falco still was alive efter he released the last album he would be "BIG" agein.....GREAT songs at the album....and he had 2-3 hits in Germany & Austria....

Found today a cd of Falco on a flea market

'The Remix Hit Collection'

With:

1. Der Kommisar (Part 2)
2. Rock Me Amadeus Club Remix
3. Jeanny (part 1)
4. Data de Groove Club Remix
5. Vienna Calling
6. Junge Römer
7. Wiener Blut Club remix
8. Emotional
9. Coming Home (Jeanny part 2)
10. Falco Megamix
11. The Sound Of Music

Weird is that on the cd cover I can find an label with this text 'C.D. ITALIA FABBRICATO ESTERO' and a number '43026332'. Does someone know what this means?

Can´t help you, Angel.

Hmm, nice topic: I think Falco never had released "Out Of The Dark" this way if he had been still alive.
Some people of his environment (former keyboarder Thomas Rabitsch as producer, his former manager etc.) released
a "Falco-like" album half an year after his death called "Verdammt wir leben noch" - very good; including the last
songs he recorded and former ones, which didn´t make it to other albums for several reasons.

R.I.P.

I had found this double-maxi-set / 7 new mixes : Falco - Titanic - The Mixes

1. Club Mix (131 BPM) - Another Mixz mix / Mix 2
2. 12' Mix / TV Mix
3. Dance 'til you drop techno (127 BPM)
4. Mouse Vocal (119 BPM) / Funky Ragga (115 BPM)

I saw 'FOR PROMOTION ONLY!'

Is this something rare?
