Album: Blackout (1982)
Charted: 64 65

Songfacts®:

  • This was the Scorpions' breakout song in America, where it hit #1 on the Mainstream Rock chart. The band is from Germany, but had tremendous success in English-speaking countries, something that might have to do with their unusual perspective. In our interview with Scorpions guitarist Rudolf Schenker, he explained: "We had a big single with 'Nobody Like You' in '82. People asked us, 'Why are you guys coming from Germany, and you have this #1 single in the United States? What is this secret?' I said, 'Maybe it is because we see things in a different way. We explain things differently, and we go very deep inside with the music and the lyrics, and we have a different view. And people start liking this view because it's not the same as the views of other people."
