Falco – Do It Again (1985)

Johann (Hans) Hölzel (19 February 1957 – 6 February 1998), better known by his stage name Falco, was an Austrian pop and rock musician and rapper. He had several international hits: “Der Kommissar”, “Rock Me Amadeus”, “Vienna Calling”, “Jeanny”, “The Sound of Musik”, “Coming Home (Jeanny Part 2)” and posthumously, “Out of the Dark”. He is the first and only artist to date whose principal language was German to score a number-one hit in the United States with “Rock Me Amadeus”. His estate claims he has sold 40 million albums and 20 million singles to date, which makes him the best selling Austrian singer of all time.

“Wiener Blut” was the 1988 fifth album by Falco. It was dedicated to Falco’s “daughter”, Bianca, recorded in 1987 and should be the last album produced by Dutch hitmakers Bolland & Bolland. This album was much less successful than Emotional, but in Austria, Germany and Switzerland, it peaked Top 3 and Top 20 in the charts.

The fourth single released from “Weiner Blut” was a cover of Steely Dan’s “Do It Again”, remixed by Shep Pettibone for the US Sire 12″ single release.
