Awesome Old Song of the Week (Patriots/Bill Belichick edition): "Wind of Change" by the Scorpions

Manning didn't seem to enjoy the weather much.
Last night Tom Brady was a spectacular 17-23 for 201 yards and 2 TD's over the two quarters he played going up against a brutal wind in Foxboro (and an even more amazing 12-14, 163 yards, and 2 TD during the ridiculous 3rd quarter rally).  Peyton Manning, not so much: Denver's QB was 9-18 for 75 yards, 1 TD, and 1 huge INT throwing into the wind.  It was such a factor that after winning the overtime coin flip Bill Belichick chose to take the wind and hand Manning the ball, something that last happened in the NFL 11 years ago to the day (oddly enough), and led to Marty Mornhinweg eventually getting fired when his Detroit Lions lost on the first possession.

The obvious choice here was clearly Bob Seger's "Against the Wind," but the Scorpions' 1991 hit fits my Awesome Old Song of the Week profile much better (early '90s, pop, hair band ballad, etc).
