Remember The Good Times - Scorpions 

 

Remembering my life, your life

We’re still standing after all

 

This is a deep cut from one of the lesser known Scorpions’ albums. The band describes it as a “retro garage” mix, rock n roll song. Not their typical sound, but just having fun. And that makes it fun to listen to!
