An original composition written for Frank Sinatra , If I never sing another song was recorded bySammy Davis Jr. that are already there tv and concert performances ended with it.
In Netherlands have singers also had success with the compositions of Jürgens, including André van Duin ("a true friend", Ich war noch niemals in New York), Joe Harris("drink red wine", "Griechischer Wein") and Gerard Cox ("evening", Abends). The biggest hit is, however, in the Dutch Gib mir deine Fear as "give me your fear" sung by both the translator André Hazes as by Guus Meeuwis.
In 1964 he made a first stab at a Eurovision victory with the song Warum nur Warum, it ended up in sixth place and the British candidate Matt Monro was made the song so well that he covered as Walk away and at number 1 in the British charts and came in second place in the American charts.

Udo is one of the most prolific pop musicians. He has written songs about the nine hundred and about fifty studio albums released. He is often depicted as a singer but this is not correct. In his song lyrics often about deeper problems, the current decadence (1993Café Grö β enwahn ) or the consumer society (Aber bitte mit Sahne, 1976). The environment has its attention (5 Minutes vor Zwölf, 1982), and addiction (Rot blüht der Mouth, 1983).

The song Gehet hin und vermehret euch is on the public channels in Austria and Germany not broadcast because of the text.
