It was the realm where all our wildest Pop dreams were born. And the pivotal song was „Summer in Berlin“. When I read the quote from Christopher von Deylen aka Schiller, that „Summer in Berlin“ sounded like the ultimate wanderlust to me“, it felt like the validation of a long divined spiritual connection between him and us.
