Scorpions – Wind Of Change

Wind of Change” is a power ballad written by Klaus Meine, the lead singer of the German rock band Scorpions

It holds the record for the best-selling single by a German artist.

 

It appeared on their 1990 album Crazy World, but did not become a worldwide hit single until 1991—just after the failed coup that led to the collapse of the Soviet Communist regime—when it topped the charts in Germany and across Europe and hit No. 4 in the United States and No. 2 in the United Kingdom. It later appeared on the band’s 1995 live album Live Bites, their 2000 album with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Moment of Glory, and on their 2001 unplugged album Acoustica. Worldwide, the single has sold millions of copies, making it one of the best selling singles of all time; a common number given is 14 million copies sold.

If you adored Patrick Swayze, this is a beautiful song with a very nice slide slow of pictures capturing some of Patrick’s best photographic moments of the 80’s.  RIP – always will be missed –  such a talented man!!
