    I've listened to a lot of Scorpions songs. But Wind of Change would not be one of my top 5 Scorpions songs. Maybe it came after I stopped paying attention to the Scorpions. They are still touring today. The Scorpions are great. But they are what they are and they haven't changed much.

    But this particular Scorpions song is one of the biggest hits in Europe of all time. It came exactly in the time period of the fall of the Soviet Union. The Scorpions are a German band afterall. There was 2-3 year period where the wall collapsed, the government collapsed, the economy collapsed, all the satellite countries were cast out on their own for the first time in 2 generations. it was a profound moment for Europe, almost to the level of the end of WWII.

    There is even new research that is emerging that the CIA actually wrote this song. The CIA had multiple programs of influence of which the Russians now emulate. The irony here is that the Russians have modified this cultural operation to modern times and applied it to us. I do hope the story of the CIA writing this song is true, but it might be all BS.

    Scorpions - Wind of Change

    Scorpions - Wind of Change (1990)



    "Wind Of Change"

    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 is 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

    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 follow 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

    Scorpions - No One Like You

    Scorpions - No One Like You (1982)



    "No One Like You"

    Girl, it's been a long time that we've been apart
    Much too long for a man who needs love
    I miss you since I've been away
    Babe, it wasn't easy to leave you alone
    It's getting harder each time that I go
    If I had the choice, I would stay

    There's no one like you
    I can't wait for the nights with you
    I imagine the things we'll do
    I just wanna be loved by you

    No one like you
    I can't wait for the nights with you
    I imagine the things we'll do
    I just wanna be loved by you

    Girl, there are really no words strong enough
    To describe all my longing for love
    I don't want my feelings restrained
    Ooh, babe, I just need you like never before
    Just imagine you'd come through this door
    You'd take all my sorrow away

    There's no one like you
    I can't wait for the nights with you
    I imagine the things we'll do
    I just wanna be loved by you

    No one like you
    I can't wait for the nights with you
    I imagine the things we'll do
    I just wanna be loved by you

    No one like you
    I can't wait for the nights with you
    I imagine the things we'll do
    I just wanna be loved by you

    No one like you
    I can't wait for the nights with you
    I imagine the things we'll do
    I just wanna be loved by you...

    Scorpions - Still Loving You

    Scorpions - Still Loving You (1984)




    "Still Loving You"
    ("Love At First Sting" Version)

    Time, it needs time to win back your love again
    I will be there, I will be there
    Love, only love can bring back your love someday
    I will be there, I will be there

    Fight, babe, I'll fight to win back your love again
    I will be there, I will be there
    Love, only love can bring down the wall someday
    I will be there, I will be there

    If we go again all the way from the start
    I would try to change the things that killed our love
    Your pride has built a wall, so strong that I can't get through
    Is there really no chance to start once again? I'm loving you

    Try, baby, try to trust in my love again
    I will be there, I will be there
    Love, our love just shouldn't be thrown away
    I will be there, I will be there

    If we'd go again, all the way from the start
    I would try to change the things that killed our love
    Your pride has built a wall, so strong that I can't get through
    Is there really no chance to start once again?

    If we'd go again, all the way from the start
    I would try to change the things that killed our love
    Yes, I've hurt your pride, and I know what you've been through
    You should give me a chance, this can't be the end

    I'm still loving you
    I'm still loving you
    I'm still loving you
    I need your love
    I'm still loving you

    Still loving you, baby

    Still loving you
    I need your love
    Still loving you
    I need your love, oh
    Still loving you
    I need your love, oh
    I need your love
    I need your love...

    Barry, please forgive me. I know you have posted the majority of these before.

    Scorpions - Big City Nights

    Scorpions - Big City Nights (1984)



    "Big City Nights"

    When the daylight is falling down into the night
    And the sharks try to cut a big piece out of life
    It feels alright to go out to catch an outrageous thrill
    But it's more like spinning wheels of fortune
    Which never stand still

    Big city, big city nights
    You keep me burning
    Big city, big city nights

    When the sunlight is rising up in my eyes
    And the long night has left me back at somebody's side
    It feels alright for a long sweet minute like hours before
    But it's more like looking out for something
    I can't find anymore

    Big city, big city nights
    You keep me burning
    Big city, big city nights
    Always yearning

    There is no dream
    That you can't make true, if you're looking for love
    But there's no girl
    Who's burning the ice away from my heart
    Maybe tonight!

    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

    Bob Dylan - Shelter From The Storm

    Bob Dylan - Shelter From The Storm (from Blood on the Tracks 1975)



    Live 1976


    "Shelter From The Storm"

    'Twas in another lifetime one of toil and blood
    When blackness was a virtue, the road was full of mud
    I came in from the wilderness a creature void of form
    "Come in," she said
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm"

    And if I pass this way again you can rest assured
    I'll always do my best for her on that I give my word
    In a world of steel-eyed death and men who are fighting to be warm
    "Come in," she said
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm"

    Not a word was spoke between us there was little risk involved
    Everything up to that point had been left unresolved
    Try imagining a place where it's always safe and warm
    "Come in," she said
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm"

    I was burned out from exhaustion buried in the hail
    Poisoned in the bushes and blown out on the trail
    Hunted like a crocodile ravaged in the corn
    "Come in," she said
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm"

    Suddenly I turned around and she was standing there
    With silver bracelets on her wrists and flowers in her hair
    She walked up to me so gracefully and took my crown of thorns
    "Come in," she said
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm"

    Now there's a wall between us something there's been lost
    I took too much for granted, I got my signals crossed
    Just to think that it all began on an uneventful morn
    "Come in," she said
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm"

    Well the deputy walks on hard nails and the preacher rides a mount
    But nothing really matters much it's doom alone that counts
    And the one-eyed undertaker he blows a futile horn
    "Come in," she said
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm"

    I've heard newborn babies wailing like a mourning dove
    And old men with broken teeth stranded without love
    Do I understand your question man, is it hopeless and forlorn?
    "Come in," she said
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm"

    In a little hilltop village they gambled for my clothes
    I bargained for salvation and she gave me a lethal dose
    I offered up my innocence, I got repaid with scorn
    "Come in," she said
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm"

    Well I'm living in a foreign country but I'm bound to cross the line
    Beauty walks a razor's edge someday I'll make it mine
    If I could only turn back the clock to when God and her were born
    "Come in," she said
    "I'll give you shelter from the storm"

    A poor Jamaican woman mourns the senseless loss of her child

    The Wailers - Johnny Was

    The Wailers - Johnny Was (1976)



    "Johnny Was"

    (Wo-o-o-o! Wo-o-o-o! Wooo!)
    Woman hold her head and cry,
    'Cause her son had been shot down in the street and died
    From a stray bullet.

    Woman hold her head and cry;
    Explaining to her was a passerby
    Who saw the woman cry (cry)
    Wondering how can she work it out,
    Now she knows that the wages of sin is death, yeah!
    Gift of Jah is life. (life)
    She cried: Ah-um, I - I know!
    "Johnny was a good man," I - I know! (never did a thing wrong)
    "Johnny was a good, good, good, good, good, good, good, good,
    good, good, good man", (Johnny was good man)
    she cried - she crie-ie-ie-ie-ie-ie-ie-ied!

    Wo-ooh! Woman hold her head and cry,
    As her son had been shot down in the street and died
    Just because of the system. (system)

    Woman hold her head and cry;
    Comforting her I was passing by.
    She complained, then she cry:
    Oh-ooh-wo-ah, cry (ah-ah), yeah, I know now (ah-ah),
    no I know, I know now: (Johnny was a good man)
    Said I know, mm-mm-mm-mm-mm. (Never did a thing wrong)
    Ah! Ah! (Johnny was a good man)
    Can a woman tender care, she cried, (Never did a thing wrong)
    Cease towards the child she bear? (Johnny was a good man)
    Wo-ho-ho-ooh! Woman cry, woman - (Never did a thing wrong)
    She cried, wo-oh! She cried, yeah! (Johnny was a good man)
    Can a woman tender care
    Cease towards the child she bear? (Never did a thing wrong)
    Wo-now, cry! (Johnny was a good man)

    Not a bad cover. But Colt needs to be a man and grow out that thumbnail, like the rest of us classical guitarists. Picks are cheating.
