"Wind of Change" is a 1990 power ballad written by Klaus Meine, lead vocalist of the German hard rock/metal band Scorpions. It appeared on their 1990 album Crazy World, but did not become a worldwide hit single until 1991, when it topped the charts in Germany and across Europe, and hit #4 in the United States and #2 in the United Kingdom. Live renditions of the song later appeared on the 1995 live album Live Bites, on their 2000 album Moment of Glory, with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, and on their 2001 unplugged album Acoustica. Meine was reportedly inspired to write the song on a visit to Moscow in 1989, and the opening lines refer to the city's landmarks. The Moskva is the name of the river that runs through Moscow (both the city and the river are named identically in Russian), and Gorky Park is the name of an amusement park in Moscow. In 2005 the viewers of the German television network ZDF chose this song as the song of the century. It is the highest ever selling song in Germany, reputedly selling over 6 million copies in that country alone. The band also recorded a Russian-language version of the song, under the title Ветер Перемен (Veter Peremen) and a Spanish version called Vientos de Cambio.

Internationally acclaimed for their 1984 rock anthem "Rock You Like a Hurricane" as well as other popular singles such as "Big City Nights", "No One Like You", "Send Me an Angel", "Still Loving You", and "Wind of Change", the band has sold over 100 million records worldwide.

Wind of Change - Scorpions

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
Can feel it everywhere
I'm 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
