Scorpions - Wind of Change

One of the best songs of the 20th century ... and a must have on every best-of list ... this song talks about the changes in eastern Europe in the late 80's and 1990 ... especially in Germany and Russia ... its still very popular in Germany ... and the brits use it like some sort of a military tune ... very beautiful song ... i remember VirginKiller (local band) does a really good cover for it ... i listened to it last time in Wakalat Street this summer ...

Enjoy !


Original Version (1990)




Acoustic Version (Portugal , 2001) =Awesome=

I follow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change
An August summer night
Soldiers passing by
Listening to the wind of change

The world closing in
Did you ever think
That we could be so close,like brothers
The future's in the air
I can feel it everywhere
Blowing with the wind of change

Chorus:
Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
In the wind of change

Walking down the street
Distant memories
Are buried in the past forever

I fallow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams
With you and me

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
In the wind of change

The wind of change blows straight
Into the face of time
Like a stormwind that will ring
The freedom bell for peace of mind
Let your balalaika sing
What my guitar wants to say

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams
With you and me

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
In the wind of change

"Winds of Change" was not their most popular Scorpions hit, but it is definitely one of their little-known classics.

I love it when live versions of songs are as good or better than the originals.

I really like this song.

Yes Dave a classic example of a live version being better than the Original is "Hotel California" There's something about the cheering crowds that is just great.
