I was in 5th grade when the Berlin Wall came down. My friend Aimee’s dad brought her back a piece of the wall, and I was so jealous. I didn’t really know why at the time, except that it was something special and no one else had it. Two years later at a slumber party, we were watching MTV and I saw the video for Wind of Change for the first time. I’m not sure, but I might have cried. (I also might have cried for the video to Everything I Do, I Do It For You. What can I say? I was a 13-year-old girl.) Twenty years later, and it’s still a great song.
But tonight in New Orleans, the news is all about another Scorpions song.
Although it has become more of a Rock Me Like a Windy-and-Kind-of-Rainy-Night. It’s just that no one has told the weather team that.
