With the election campaign rewriting the folk song “No Beautiful Country” the Greens are attracting attention and a lot of ridicule on Twitter. “Suspicious hit,” a user commented paradoxically under the one-minute clip. “Honestly, folks, who did that?”

The presentation of the rewritten lyrics turns out to be very perverse here and there. Another user said: “I think they have chosen the worst singers here to melt the hearts of potential voters with emotion:“ Oh, he sings just as badly as I do! That’s a real person! “”
A line from the green version of the song: “A new departure is stirring far – on new paths – don’t stop yet – this time”. Finally, presidential candidate Annalena Barbach and co-party leader Robert Habek also appear.
The creator of this place, according to Greens, will be running on “selected online channels” starting this Tuesday.
Greens say the agency and the party are relying on “more than 20 supporters” instead of professional singers. Accordingly, they sing individual lines of rewritten songs at home or at work.

Key voices also spoke: “Maybe the Greens don’t want to be selected?” Writer Sophie Bossman asked under that spot: “Is the song already on Spotify?”
But there was also encouragement: “Good place. Real people. Otherwise, one will rarely be there before getting artificial fullness. (If you do not like it, you can stick to Test Tube Music, Autotune and Photoshop.) “, Someone else comments.
This is not the first time Green has used traditional German songs. In 2018, party leaders Habeb and Barbach embarked on a summer tour of the national anthem line under the slogan “Des Clocks Underfund.” In the re-enactment of the folk song “No Beautiful Country” in the current election campaign, the text is spoken at the end of the two party leaders.
