The German pop singer Falco*, who penned a 1980's hit about composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, is to release a new song which he hopes will again reach the upper echelons of the billboard charts.
The one-hit-wonder who can't walk down the street without someone singing the legendary lines "Amadeus, Amadeus.Amadeus. Amadeus, Amadeus. Rock me Amadeus", says his new song will be equally infectious.
"It was very hard for me to follow up the massive success of 'Amadeus' but I think now that almost 25 years have passed since that great occasion, the world is ready for 'Lovely Ludwig'", said the artiste.
'Lovely Ludwig' tells the life story of Ludwig Van Beethoven in the space of just 3 and a half minutes, accompanied by a cheap synthesizer and retro video of 18th Century regal elegance filmed in the local youth club by teenage drunks and an old pervert with a handycam.
"The chorus line goes: "Ludvig, Ludwig. Lovely, lovely Ludwig. Rock me Lovely Ludwig"", sang the former Nazi youth member and choir boy-turned music producer.
The song will be available as a free download from mid-November to those who purchased the original vinyl record and can provide a receipt of their original purchase - which should be practically no one.
*Note: Falco is actually dead. RIP.
