Like a dark horse from left field, your success depends on the element of strange surprise.

The bus accident that killed your Birthstar in 1998 went largely unnoticed in the English-speaking world, but in the Strasses and Allees of his native Vienna, February 6, 1998, will always be remembered as the Day Der Musik Died. Falco was already a hero among the teutonic Volk for his unlikely appearance on the American pop charts with Der Kommissar in 1983, but he earned his people their place in the popstrological sun by rising all the way to #1 in 1986 with Rock Me Amadeus, a German-language tribute to that other famous Austrian. But the achievement did more than earn your Birthstar a place among the popstrological elite -- it also earned him the unlikely distinction of scoring the first #1 pop single by a male rap artist. That's right -- it wasn't Doug E. Fresh or Kool Moe Dee or Kurtis Blow or Run-D.M.C. but an Austrian in a powdered wig from the constellation Eurosomething who earned that distinction. On the strength of his strangely Fresh dipthongs and umlauts, your Birthstar beat hip-hop's founding fathers to the top of the pop charts and earned himself a place in the constellation Had to Be There, which is the obvious popstrological source of your ability to annex unfamiliar territory while leaving others to scratch their heads in wonderment as to how you manage to pull it off.
