"STRONG WIND" er det mest stemingsfulle bidraget på "Songs For The Weekend" med dype synthesizere som svever i bakgrunnen, orgel og piano som krydrer og med John Kolloens lette trommekomp som en fin kontrast. Kontrast er vel også nøkkelordet for denne sangen, ikke minst tekstmessig sett i relasjon til NJS' daværende samarbeide med Flyktningerådet. Dette kom også fram på videoen NJS laget til "Strong Wind" - så langt den eneste gangen NJS har komponert en egen video med henblikk på en spesiell melodi. Ingen typisk NJS-låt - dette til tross en klar favoritt hos NJS-tilhengerne. 

Strong Wind

(Eigil Berg)

There's a strong wind blowin' a message from a foreign land

There's a strong wind tellin' us all what's going on

Soul to soul and man to man

It ain't hard to understand

There's a strong wind spreadin’ the news from land to land

 

You can travel the world from Katmandou down to Mexico

You can travel the world as a vagabond or a king

Gimme shelter from a thunderstorm

Gimme strength to carry on

There's a strong wind blowin' the strength of Joshua's horn

 

There are people among us that pretend they do not see

There are those pretending they don't hear

But let me tell you brother

It's all part of you and me

We're in it together

In it together

 

Can't you feel the wind when you're listenin' to the radio

Can't you feel the wind when you're readin' your daily news

You can start with sympathy

For the fate of a refugee

There's a strong wind tellin' us all how it should be

 

There are people among us that pretend they do not see

There are those pretending they don't hear

But let me tell you sister

It's all part of you and me

We're in it together

In it together

 

There's a strong wind blowin' a message from a foreign land

There's a strong wind tellin' us all what's going on

Soul to soul and man to man

It ain't hard to understand

There's a strong wind spreadin' the news from land to land
