Rock You Like a Hurricane – Scorpions

3172769270_63544a110c_mIt’s summer! It’s winter! It’s summer! It’s winter! We don’t know. We can’t keep up. We just bring an umbrella with us everywhere we go and hope that our cute summer sandals don’t get soaked beyond repair. We don’t even mind, though. It’s the World Cup and our work is suffering dearly due to our access to streaming coverage. Ah, the perils of internet in the office. We love good, healthy competition and the dash of nationalism makes it almost like the Olympics, but easier to keep track of. Team U.S.A.! Sorry, Ghana. #freedomftw

On that hard rock note, we’re busting out this classic track before actual hurricane season happens, for obvious reasons. Fun fact: Scorpions are German. Who knew? They’re the most internationally successful German band in history (an admittedly small competitive pool, but still). On a more impressive note, they’re one of the all-time best selling bands in the world, with somewhere between 75 million and 100 million records sold. “Rock You Like a Hurricane” came off of their 1984 album, “Love at First Sting.” If you were born before 1990, you know this song. If you were born after 1990 and don’t know it, you clearly didn’t own Guitar Hero and therefore had no childhood. Regardless of the quality of your upbringing, the video is a monument to every good thing about the ’80s. Tons of space-babes and hair (on heads and chests) with a healthy dose of animal-print spandex. It’s time to either revisit or experience this one for the first time. Give it a listen.
