Today I am listening to the Bad 13 Challenge entries. A propos of nothing, Falco (the Austrian popster best known for 1986's "Rock Me, Amadeus") popped into my mind.
And I'll be damned: Falco died ten years ago today, when he was struck by a bus. So, to remember Falco, as well as get in gear for the Bad 13 Challenge results, here is his 1982 video "Der Kommissar". The song is good for real. The video sort of blows, which is why it is so compelling, but why blame Falco? This was back in 1982. We didn't know any better.
