Rudi Schuricke

Rudi Schuricke (born Erhard Rudolf Hans Schuricke; 16 March 1913, Brandenburg an der Havel – 28 December 1973) was a popular German singer and film star. Especially well known in the 1930s through the early 1950s, his 1949 recording of "Capri-Fischer" was a "smash hit" in Germany. Even as late as the mid-1950s, he was still a successful musical artist. In 1954 alone, his song "Moulin Rouge" was the 74th most purchased single on the German year-end chart and another of his songs "Das Märchen unserer Liebe" appeared on the German Top50 chart. The advent of the rock 'n' roll age, however, soon made his music old fashioned.

Schuricke tried to make a comeback in the early 1960s. At the time of his comeback, Billboard Magazine referred to him as "one of Germany's hottest recording stars of former years." Schuricke returned to the music charts in 1980, when a compilation of his songs, Noch einmal mit Gefühl, reached the #6 spot on the German albums chart. It remained on the chart for ten weeks.
