Song information

"Wind of Change" is a ballad written in 1990 by Klaus Meine, vocalist of the German band Scorpions. It comes from the album "Crazy World". It is known how big influence on the history the music can have. And so it was with "Wind of Change". The song refers to the political changes in the Soviet Union in the late 80s, which contributed to the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War. The single has sold millions of copies around the world, making it one of the best-selling singles of all time. The band wrote the song during a visit to Russia in 1989, which is why we can find in it references to monuments and Moscow sites. Scorpions was also the first hard-rock band that played in Russia at that time (and moreover, coming from Germany). Rudolf Schenker, the guitarist of the band, described the song as "the message for the unification and peaceful revolution in the world". It also became the unofficial anthem of the reunification of Germany and the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Trivia
