Klaus Meine, the leader singer of Scorpions was inspired to write the song when, in August 1989, the hard-rock group took part in The Moscow Music Peace Festival, the first Western music festival ever held in the USSR.
A certain desire for freedom was palpable among Muscovites.
But at that time no producer agreed to finance the release of a record.
In November of the same year, when the Berlin Wall fell, the Scorpions finalized their song while keeping the references to the city of Moscow.
Released in 1990, it celebrates the new face of the former Soviet bloc: Perestroika and tops the charts in 1991.
Mikhail Gorbachev himself received the Scorpions at the Kremln where they performed Wind Of Change in Russian.
