Emotional (1986) is the fourth studio album by the Austrian musician Falco released in 1986.[2]

Information[edit]

The album was produced in 1985/1986. It was the second album by Bolland & Bolland. The first single was The Sound of Musik. The song was quite successful, also outside the German-speaking countries. The next single was Coming Home (Jeanny Part II, One Year Later), which reached the top of German charts. It was a sequel to the Falco song Jeanny, about a young woman who had disappeared for one year and still was not found.[citation needed]

The album's cover, a still from the promotional video for the title track, is an homage to a similar backdrop used by Elvis Presley in his 1968 "comeback special."
