Junge Roemer (Young Romans) is the second album by Austrian pop rock artist Falco, released in 1984.

Production and success[edit]

The album was a No. 1 hit in his native Austria. The title track was a hit single there as well as in Switzerland, and most notably in Spain, where it peaked at No. 2. Still, the project was considered a relative disappointment compared with the international number one success of the breakthrough hit single, "Der Kommissar", from his previous album, "Einzelhaft". This inspired him to change producers and incorporate more English phrases for titles and choruses, which resulted in a trio of worldwide hits two years later with "Rock Me Amadeus", "Vienna Calling" and "Jeanny".

While the phrase in the German language is correctly written "Junge Römer", the title of Falco's album and single in both German and English pressings is "Junge Roemer".
