[Out of the Dark and Into the Light]  
Today is the tenth anniversary of Falco's death. He was an extraordinary, austrian musician and a very controversial and eccentric person. His death really affected me, because it was so unexpected and he was working on a comeback at the time of his death. I always liked him because he dared to say and do things nobody else did. A lot of you probably won't know him, but I will always remember him.



He sold about 60 million albums and singles worldwide and his record Rock me Amadeus reached the #1 in the United States.

SONGS OF THE DAY

Jeanny

Jeanny, quit livin' on dreams
Jeanny, life is not what it seems
You're lost in the night, don't wanna struggle and fight
There's someone, who needs you, babe


This song was one of the controversial things Falco had done. The story of "Jeanny" is told from the point of view of a rapist and murderer. Several radio stations refused to play the the song and it was totally ignored in the U.S.

Out of the Dark

Out of the dark
Into the light
I give up and close my eyes


Falco wrote this song just a few weeks prior to his death what caused many speculations about the circumstances concerning his death. Even though the officials claimed to have found cocaine in his blood, it was ruled an accident.
