A classic Scorpions song written to celebrate glasnost in the USSR, the end of the Cold War, the fall of the Berlin wall and German reunification. Reputedly the highest ever selling song in Germany. Klaus Meine's famous whistle throughout the song is both haunting, evocative and spine tingling in terms of marking a critical change in World destiny. The song's guitar solo is played by Rudolf Schenker. In 2005, viewers of the German television network ZDF chose this song as the song of the century.

What my guitar wants to say

I gave this rating because although the band is not amongst my favourites this track is special.

You need to be a lover of slow down beat music with a lot of base.

But I believe most people buy music which at some point in their lives has touched them in some way or another.

This song summed up the Berlin Wall time so well. It almost became an anthem for freedom to some. The words are still important today and really capture the feelings of many, many people and should be in most collections.

Difficult to buy older tracks now, without buying a whole bunch of others that I don't want, so downloading is a great option.
