1234 is a 1990 album by Propaganda. Michael Mertens was the only member remaining in the group from their previous album A Secret Wish, though Suzanne Freytag made guest appearances on two tracks, and the album included some songs co-written by Ralf Doerper prior to the breakup of the original group.

Two singles from the album had major commercial success in the U.S. "Heaven Give Me Words" reached the #22 spot on the Adult Contemporary chart and "Your Wildlife" reached the #22 spot on the Dance Music/Club Play Singles chart. Both songs were co-written by Howard Jones.[1][2][3]
