2. Juni 1953 (68 Jahre alt)
Paul Engemann (born June 2, 1953) is a 1980s pop musician best-known for his 1983 song "Scarface (Push It to the Limit)". The song featured prominently in the film Scarface, which was released in the same year. As Engemann had no further hits or other released material, he is considered to be a one-hit wonder.
Together with Giorgio Moroder he landed a number one hit in Germany (81 in USA) with "Reach Out" that became the official song to the XXIIIrd Olympic Games 1984 in Los Angeles. Among other releases were "American Dream" (with Giorgio Moroder 1984),"Face To Face" (1985), "Shannon's Eyes" (1985, 1986), "Brain Power" (Summer School - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 1987), "To Be Number One" (1990), "NeverEnding Story" (2000).
Paul Engemann was the lead vocalist of the 1980s band Device, whose one and only album, the futuristically titled 22B3, was released in the spring of 1986. It produced a Top 40 single with "Hanging on a Heart Attack," which peaked at number 35. Device was formed around the skills of musician/songwriter Holly Knight, with Engemann serving as lead vocalist along with Holly Knight, and session guitarist Gene Black, who had worked with Cher and Tina Turner. Noted producer/songwriter Mike Chapman, whom had worked with Knight in the past, produced the album.
Engemann joined the band Animotion as co-lead singer with actress Cynthia Rhodes (who replaced Astrid Plane) in 1988 (Engemann took the place of the former male lead Bill Wadhams) and scored a Top Ten hit with the single "Room to Move" from the Dan Aykroyd movie My Stepmother Is an Alien. Animotion dissolved in 1990.
