Parralox - Wind of Change

Wind of Change

Written by Klaus Meine

I follow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change

An August summer night
Soldiers passing by
Listening to the wind of change

The world is closing in
Did you ever think
That we could be so close, like brothers

The future's in the air
(I) can feel it everywhere
Blowing with the wind of change

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away)
In the wind of change

Walking down the street
Distant memories
Are buried in the past forever
I follow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams (share their dreams)
With you and me

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night (the glory night)
Where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away)
In the wind of change (the wind of change)

The wind of change
Blows straight into the face of time
Like a stormwind that will ring the freedom bell
For peace of mind
Let your balalaika sing
What my guitar wants to say

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams (share their dreams)
With you and me (with you and me)

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away)
In the wind of change (in the wind of change)

Additional Info:

Wednesday the 21st of October, 2020.
0831 hours. Just spoke with Casear in France. Looks like their curfew is just starting up again, while ours ended last week./
I'm going to visit Angus today. It's been over 8 months since I've seen him in person.
I was speaking with Tiffany when I doing my HAHC shadow shift at SVHM on Saturday and she was mentioning this amazing podcast she was listening to about this song. And I nearly fell over when she mentioned what song it was!
I thought I'd start this track, as I was speaking to Thomas Lilja about this many months ago. It's mid October and I need to get my ass into gear to finish Holiday '20. Every year I say I'm going to finish the tracks mid-year but then time passes and it makes fun of people who don't wear glasses.
0933. Back to the programming. Right now it's tempo mapping and arrangement. I've been doing the 10 Minute vocal Warm Ups on YouTube while doing that.
1001. Just finished the arrangement and tempo mapping. Now I need to add in all the time signature changes. It changes from 4/4 to 2/4 just before the ends of the verses. If I don't add the time sig changes now it's going to get real messy real fast when I start the actual song programming! Ie The Parts won't land on the first beat.
1127. Just finished the drum programming.
1203. Starting the vocals now. Don't think I will be seeing Angus today. I don't want to lose the momentum.
1558. Just finished recording all the vocals. Just printed a mix. Doesn't sound too bad. I think V2 will be the final version once I sort out the guitar conversions etc.
1632. time to take Jack for a walk and go to the Post Office. I've been going non-stop in the studio for over 8 hours. Time for some fresh air. I'll meet Sharyn at 1700 and play her the track, and then we will go for a walk in the park.
