Rock Me Amadeus

Rock Me Amadeus by Falco was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, May 10, 1986 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. The song is about the classical composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). Mozart was a child prodigy who performed his first musical tour at the age of five. His last three years were his most successful and he had an extremely excessive lifestyle. The basic concept is the suggestion that Mozart was the rock'n'roll rebel of his day. Some of the lyrics in "Rock Me Amadeus" reflect this. A spoof of this song was featured in an episode of The Simpsons entitled "A Fish Called Selma." The family go to see a musical production of The Planet Of The Apes called "Stop The Planet Of The Apes I Want To Get Off!" The song that spoofs "Rock Me Amadeus" is called "Dr. Zaius."
