It is very rare to have a melodic metal band write a ballad that sweeps across the whole world.
Despite that “Scorpions” are known for much heavier music, they have managed to hit 2 strong homes runs like this. One was “Still Loving You” (which I myself have covered on my channel).
And the other was “Wind Of Change.”
The Scorpions began writing this song in 1989 after a visit to Moscow.
They were actually the first hard rock band ever to play in Russia.
They returned the following year to play the Moscow Music Peace Festival. It was then that the words to this song were written. They were inspired by the sight of thousands of Russians cheering them on, even though they were German. Lead singer Klaus Meine is quoted as saying, “Everyone was there: the Red Army, journalists, musicians from Germany, from America, from Russia – the whole world on one boat. It was like a vision; everyone was talking the same language. It was a very positive vibe. That night was the basic inspiration for Wind Of Change.”
It was the same year this song was written that the world changed forever. Modern history will record that in late summer of 1989, Communist Europe ceased to be. “Wind of Change” rose to be the unofficial theme song of the dismantling of the Berlin Wall, late in the summer of 1989.
Our “Sing It To Win It” winner Giusy Ferrigno and I decided to give it a shot.
Giusy has been doing KTVA for about one year now and currently lives in Naples, Italy.
I love that she has worked very hard on her diction, that her accent is undetectable.
Not only is she fluent in English, but also Spanish, French, and currently learning Russian!
I love working with hard working people, and Giusy is certainly one of those people!
We hope you enjoy the song 🙂
