This song is one of the most ubiquitious and enduring of its era but I could not until now have told you the name of the act or the song.

The anchor isn't really what keeps the boat in place. The anchor just sort of lands on the seabed and sits there, the boat isn't pulling off it. Or if it is pulling off it, you're in trouble.
The chain is what does the real work, that's the weight and the thing that stops the boat from moving around, the only time the anchor should get pulled on is when you're pulling it up to move off.

ah. i remember thinking as a kid 'if the anchor grabs the seabed to stop the boat moving, how do they pull it up?'

Completely wretched song that I detested since it came out.
The couple in BMG had previously made their name as songwriters for Whitney Houston.

there's a conspiracy theory that 'wind of change' was not written by the scorpions, but by the CIA. someone even made a podcast series about it. i've not listened to it to find out if there's anything credible about the claim.
