Germany: Angela Merkel’s military farewell features punk singer’s hit

A military ceremony has been held in honour of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who is due to step down next week after 16 years in office.

Mrs Merkel chose three pieces of music – one of which raised a few eyebrows. She chose a popular song by Hildegard Knef called For Me It Should Rain Red Roses, an 18th-Century hymn, and a popular East German song by punk singer Nina Hagen.
