Monday Afternoon Diversion: The Winds Of Change

By Kevin Robinson in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 10, 2014 9:00PM

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, here's David Hasselhoff performing his hit song "Looking for Freedom" at the Brandenburg Gate as the history is being made.

Just for fun, here's the official music video of Scorpions hit song, "Winds of Change" which came out two years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. In the United States it's often erroneously associated with the reunification of Germany, but was, in fact, inspired by Glasnost in the Soviet Union.
