8:30 Window on the World
The German rock band Scorpions' lead singer, Klaus Meine, was inspired to write Wind of Change at a rock festival in Moscow in the summer of 1989.
Politics were rapidly shifting in the Soviet Union at the time, as a result of Mikhail Gorbachev's reforms. No one had any idea that the Berlin wall would come down only a few months later. Wind of Change was released in 1990, and has since become an unofficial anthem for the end of the Cold War and the reunification of Germany in 1991.
