Still Loving You

Scorpions



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This is a very emotional song of love and pain and wishing for another chance. In our interview with Scorpions guitarist Rudolf Schenker, he explained: "I came up with the composition's melody and everything. It took about six years of trying to get the song somehow on the album. Matthias Jabs came in with the guitar part, and the feeling was immediately right, so Klaus (Meine) noticed it was right. Therefore, he wanted to write something very special. He told me about how one day he went out into the fields in the snow, and it was then that he came up with the lyrics. He came back home and threw them down, and here we are. It's a story about a love affair where they recognized it may be over, but let's try again. It's the old story; always the old story. I mean, what can we use? We can't reinvent the wheel. What we always do, is say something which has already been said many times, in our own way."
This was written in crescendo: a calm acoustic start followed by power chords as Klaus Meine sings in a voice full of pain.
This song hit the charts all over the world, but it was especially popular in France, where it went to #1. In fact, it was so popular that it may have increased the population of the country. Rudolf Schenker told us: "'Still Loving You,' the song of love, created a baby boom in France. But we didn't believe it, either, you know? We were on a TV show in France between recordings, and the host, a very famous guy that interviews us each year, goes, 'Hey, guys, you know that you are responsible for the baby boom in '85.' We were laughing like crazy! And yes, it's been measured by the government. It's unbelievable, I tell you."

My best friend Steve from Chicago introduced me to The Scorpions in return for Genesis. As the years went on, I introduced my girlfriend Madge and we have seen them twice now in Glasgow and they were enthusiastically welcomed!
What would we do without good friends and music being recommended?
The "Accoustica" DVD is a must as it has one of the best productions and sound quality ever, it is now available in the USA as of a few months ago. Enjoy fellow Scorps fans!

This song is phenomenal. I can relate to this so much at this point in my life. I recently found out that my soul mate (so I though) and love of my life is getting married in a couple of weeks. We were so young when we dated and I was naive so I broke his heart twice and four years later (now) I regret everything that happened and wish I could turn back the hands of time. This song is exactly the way I am feeling right now. I wish I could turn back time and make him "trust in my love again."

I could see Robert Plant singing this song. It sounds kind of like him.

I love the chord progression in this song. Very well put together.

There was a version of this done by the band and featured a virtuoso young violinist whose name escapes me right now. That version gets you sad in no time. great song.

Lot of pain and feeling in this one.

The band 'Sonata Arctica' do a rockin' version of this. Starts out soft, basically the same and then get's ALOT faster with amazing guitar work aswell. Deffinately worth checking out if you like this song.

Wow. Thats all i have to say. I still get goosebumps while listening to this song. USA sucks, they dont know good music, the music these days is crap. Ehm, GreenDay? Nickelback? just to name a few bands that should have never been. Thats just my opinion though. Im originally from Europe, so maybe i think that way

Great song off of a rockin' album. Scorps never did get the recognition they deserved here in the states, but I think they rock!!!
- Dee, Indianapolis, IN
A fantastic song.One of the world's best power ballads for sure!The previous two albums(Lovedrive and Animal Magnetism)got the Scorps more and more exposure in North America,but it was this album,Love at First Sting,that really put them on the map in North America and secured their status as world-wide bona fide super stars of rock
- Lee, Ottawa, Canada
Best power ballad ever!!!!!!!
- tony, pasco, WA
i was thinkin, maybe there's a little E. Germany/W. Germany stuff in there with "your pride has built a wall, so strong that I can't get through." Just a random thought that came to me yesterday. its a frekin awesome song though.

Meine's vocals in this song are amazing. This is one of my favorite Scorp hits.
