  19. 19. One of the most memorable songs of the band, is "wind of change" was a voice of protest to the many years that the Berlin Wall done to suffer their people, because of the democratic Republic of Germany.

  23. 23. RELATIONSHIP OF THE MUSIC OF SCORPIONS WITH THE SOCIAL FUNCTION. • Not much different to these positions, the singers to Governments and people to be careful with nature, that she is responsible for building beautiful things in this world and do live fascinating moments. • And finally, another of his general and strong themes is of love, the benefits that generates the soul of the joys and sorrows that you can take on how this is handled this feeling.
