Scorpions Wind Of Change

We rocked the Soviet Union, dudes! The melody was established. When they went on, the crowd went insane. It was probably as monumental doing that as it was doing the show.

So then it made a different connection. Some people at the record company thought it was too far. But even now, when we play in Russia I sing at least one chorus of the song in their language. Wind of Change became an unofficial anthem for the end of the Cold War.

The wind of change blows straight into the face of time Like a storm wind that will ring the freedom bell For peace of mind, let your balalaika sing What my guitar wants to say. Their history is different than ours.

They were inspired by the site of thousands of Russians cheering them on, even though they were German. Down to Gorky Park and after it everything would become better the moskva is another word for Moscow and the gorky park is a famous park in Moscow.

These guys, they love that stuff. And we took it pretty far. We took the boat down the Moskva River. Gorbachev was bringing glasnost and perestroika! Big city, big city nights You keep me burning Big city, big city nights Always yearning Big city, big city nights You keep me burning Big city, big city nights Always yearning.

It was a very positive vibe. There was a photo session, and after that Gorbachev sent out all the journalists and everyone, and he just wanted to be with the band and our managers and closest people.

But the Scorpions were so steady on the course. What does Wind of Change mean? Email me when new interpretations are posted for Wind of Change. Wind of change is probably one of the most prophetic songs ever, and is still one of the most listened to.

At the time, the glam of pop culture and product choice in the West was considered paramount. This was like the Beatles meeting the Queen, you know? The song was composed and written by the band's lead singer Klaus Meine and produced by Keith Olsen and the band.

In Lebanon we came after the war and played. You need to have the movie and book rights to your life. It topped singles charts around Europe and ended as one of the best-selling songs of all time. With a lot of those hits that make it big and go around the world, the record companies want you to come up with a Spanish version. We wanted to be musicians and hopefully join the international family of music.

And then the next day he pretty much had the whole song written. And poor Doc had to deal with all of them. Walking down the street, distant memories Are buried in the past forever I follow the Moskva, down to Gorky Park Listening to the wind of change. The strongest parts are the parts where you can see the Berlin Wall, where you can see the happiness of the people. We never even knew if it would be a single.

In America it was played on the adult radio stations, which is so different from rock radio. East Berlin was controlled by Josef Stalin and became a socialist state. But they all talked about what direction they wanted to take the video in. The Cold War, which had gripped the world and glued us to the edge of our seats for five decades, was finally over.

It was then that the words to this song were written. It was a dream come true to play in Russia because, from our point of view, because of our German history, we did so many bad things in Russia that we wanted to do something good. And that was the inspiration to have more than just images of the Wall coming down. They were there and ready to rock. It was very confrontational for people in the West.

So I was just whistling and it went down pretty cool. And when you saw the East German television, it was just like a dark world. The whole of Europe was alive with the feeling that the world was about to change, everyone believing it would be for the better. They wanted to make it more inclusive.

This interpretation has been marked as poor. It felt like the world was changing right in front of our eyes. Families were abruptly separated. Unfortunately, we need wind of change again.
