Falco: The Sound of Musik

Falco

Have you ever heard of Falco, well, if you don’t know the name then you might know a popular song from him from years back. Falco was born Johann Hans Holzel and was a Austrian pop and rock musician and rapper, he had a series of hits including “Der Kommissar”, “Rock Me Amadeus”, “Vienna Calling”, “Jeanny”, “The Sound of Musik”, “Coming Home” and “Out Of The Dark” which became a hit after his dead in 1998.

In the states he was best known for his number one hit “Rock Me Amadeus” which was the first German language artist to score a number one hit in the U.S. We would like to showcase one of his other songs which is also a pretty awesome video called “The Sound of Musik”.

Lyrics:

Es beginnt in einem Wald
alle Rechte sind bezahlt

und es endet doch daheim.
Meine Hände sind so kalt
denn die Zeit
die ging ins Land

meine Seele ist so rein.
Der Bube fragt den König: hey baby
do you wanna dance?
Sie machen history
denn sie sind scharf wie nie –
The first pre-elected Rock’n’Roll band.

The sound of Musik – bang-boogie
say up jump the boogie

Do the rhythm on the boogie the beat.
Do the bang-bang-boogie
say up jump the boogie

Do the rhythm on the boogie the beat.
Do the hip
do the hop
do the oh-oh-bebop

Do the freestyle Rock’n and we never gonna stop.
Herr Präsident
wir kennen eine Sprache

diese Sprache
die heißt Musik.

The sound of Musik –
Can you hear the bands playing
can you feel the bodies swaying?
And if you feel the groove you better start to move

Step in time to the rhythm and move your feet to the beat

Hey everybody
give Musik a chance and do the universal dance.

The sound of Musik –
Hear the James Brown song
hear the church choir sing

It’s the people’s voice

they’re gonna bring up that beU. and ring.
The Vienna Lipizzaner
they’re doing the rhythm and blues

It’s a Jailhouse-Rock
it’s stepping on my blues suede shoes.
The sound of Musik –
It’s Pavarotti
he is the biggest Bob Dylan fan

sie machen alle Musik for boys
girls and big taU man.
It’s Otis Redding
he’s sitting on the dock of the bay

Listen to the band
listen to the big-band

To the bang-bang
to the bang-bang
blow horn !

Hey – listen to the band
listen to the band ! (6x)
The s-s-sound of Musik
the s-s-sound of Musik (4x)

The sound of Musik –
It’s Lennon-McCartney
Cole Porter
too

They’re dancing with my babe

Babe-ba-ba-ba-babe-blue.
Hey Daddy
don’t you bother me

It’s gonna be my Rock’n’Roll day

Give the children what they want

Hear the universal choir pray.
Hear the James Brown song

Hear the church choir sing

It’s the people’s voice
they’re
Conna bring up that bell and ring.
It’s Otis Redding
he’s sitting on the dock of the bay

Give the children what they want

Hear the children do the boogie

Do the bang-bang
do the boogie-bang.
