Friday Factory Tune: Winds of Change

By November 6, 2009Friday Factory Tune

In honor of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, “Winds of Change,” with the Scorpions and the Berlin Philharmonic. What, you were expecting David Hasselhoff?

As for the Scorpions — bombastic, but in a good way. Tenth-best selling single of all time in Germany.

I once chatted with a mayor of a small town in Sachsen, formerly part of East Germany. Under the Communists, 17 people — neighbors and friends — informed on his activities to the secret police.
