Drunken Recollection… Wedding Train Of Thought
I didn’t ever intend this blog to contain a lot of music-related posts, but I can’t help it. Music is everywhere. In movies. On MTV TV. In my car. Which I am in. A lot. For work. Not to live.
So this post will be about a quick train of thought about a few songs that occurred at – you guessed it – a wedding.
First came this song:
We couldn’t remember who sung Wind of Change, and the ambient noise was too loud for Shazam took do its job, so I had to do it the old fashioned way. I Googled it.
Turned out to be by the German band, Scorpions, and it was released in 1990, which was later than I had expected. We also found out Scorpions had also performed the song, Send Me an Angel.
We confused it with this version by Real Life:
(SIDENOTE: The above version is from 1983. There was also a 1989 edition if you’re interested. We didn’t know the Scorpions‘ tune of the same name at all.)
The other mixed-up train of thought occurred when we thought Nights in White Satin (which I always thought was about knights that wore satin armor in protest since I never really listened to the words) was by Procol Harum.
Nope. It was by The Moody Blues. Procol Harum’s most famous diddy was A Whiter Shade of Pale.
Coinkydinkily, they were both released in 1967, and their videos are after the jump.
