Songs that stir memories....

Have just listened to the Wind of Change by the Scorpions for the first time in years and have had some crazy flashback memories as a result. The first time I heard this song was in August 1991.

I was in Hungary; the last Soviet soldiers had left the country less than two months before; and the Communists were in the process of an attempted coup d'├ętat in Moscow, which put the song into serious context.

Funny how memories can stick to a song.
