W Song Lyrics - A to Z Challenge

This is an April Blog Challenge. Normal blog posts will resume in May.

So much more than moons and Junes
  • Today's songs begin with W
  • Plus some lyric snippets to set you thinking and commenting!

1960s:           Walk On By - Dionne Warwick [If you see me walking down the street and I start to cry each time we meet, walk on by...] 

1970s:           We Are The Champions - Queen 

1980s:           Woman In Love - Barbra Streisand [Life is a moment in space, when the dream is gone it's a lonelier place...]

1990s:           Wind Of Change - Scorpions

We Are The Champions

Freddie Mercury wrote this classic anthem tune, guaranteed to get a crowd singing and swaying together.

'We are the champions, my friend
And we'll keep on fighting til the end...'

Mercury knew how to rouse a crowd. What a loss he is to the music scene.

What's your favourite anthem tune?

Wind of Change

This song was written by Klause Meine to celebrate the end of the Cold War with Russia. The video shows the fall of the Berlin Wall. How sad that families had been separated by that wall for so long.

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

'...Did you ever think
That we could be so close, like brothers.
The future's in the air...'

The Moskva is the river that runs through Moscow and Gorky Park is an amusement park there. I'm starting to (inevitably) get repetitive here but I don't understand why we have to have wars, be they hot or cold and as soon as one area of friction is soothed another flares.

Will we ever be at peace with each other?
