Charted: 68

Songfacts®:

  • Falco sang this in an unstable voice, as the lyrics are from the perspective of a stalker. The stalker's name is never stated, which led to some controversy as the song seemed sympathetic to the narrator, who apparently rapes the woman. that it caused. The song was banned on several radio stations in Europe, but still hit #1 in Austria, Germany and Norway. >>

  • This is a rare Germingish song: most of the lyrics are in German, but Falco sings the chorus in English.
