#RocktoberMusicFest : Scorpions - Still Loving You
Scorpions are a German rock band formed in 1965 in Hanover by Rudolf Schenker. Since the band's inception, its musical style has ranged from hard rock to heavy metal. The lineup from 1978–1992 was the most successful incarnation of the group, and included Klaus Meine, Rudolf Schenker, Matthias Jabs, Francis Buchholz, and Herman Rarebell. The band's only constant member has been Schenker, although Meine has been the lead singer for all of Scorpions' studio albums, while Jabs has been a consistent member since 1979, and bassist Paweł Mąciwoda and drummer Mikkey Dee have been in the band since 2003 and 2016 respectively.
"Still Loving You" is a power ballad and signature song of Scorpions from their 1984 album Love at First Sting. It was the second single of the album, reaching #64 on Billboard Hot 100. The music video was filmed in Dallas, TX at Reunion Arena.
According to an interview with Songfacts, this song was especially popular in France, where it went to #1. In fact, according to Rudolf Schenker: "'Still Loving You,' the song of love, created a baby boom in France."
