One of the heavy metal band's most popular songs, Scorpions released "Big City Nights" off of their breakthrough album 'Love at First Sting' in August 1984. Band members Rudolf Schenker and Klaus Meine wrote the track, which is now known as a classic rock radio staple. Schenker performed the guitar solo.
When the daylight is falling down into the night
And the sharks try to cut a big piece out of life
It feels alright to go out to catch an outrageous thrill
But it's more like spinning wheels of fortune
