Wa wa wa wa ... Walk me, Amadeus!



Falco Even if I wasn't stuck in the 80s, I'd say this with pride: I really love the music of Falco. And I think "Rock Me Amadeus" is one of the purest sources of the 80s sound available on the planet.

If my cell phone were modern enough to accommodate ring tones, every call to me would go "Su-su-su-su-superstar ... superstar ... Ro-ro-ro-ro-rock me!"

But do I worship the Austrian popster enough to dedicate not one but two sets of staircases to him?

Following the lead of the city of Vienna, which dedicated a set of stairs to the pop star after his death in 1998, some self-proclaimed "interventionists" in San Francisco recently have decided a city staircase should bear the name of the musician. Click here to see the signs from both cities.

I know what Falco would say to this: Fantastiche!
