These parodies generated six hits in the Top 20 in Germany, and were also popular in Switzerland and Austria.
Their first single will be titled “Bloody Mary” like the name of the CD. This song was the Spanish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2006.
On 1 August 2004, the 60th anniversary of the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, he apologised to Poland for “the immeasurable suffering” of its people during the conflict. He was the first German chancellor to be invited to an anniversary of the uprising. In addition to a friendly relationship with Jacques Chirac, Schröder cultivated close ties with Russian President Vladimir Putin, in an attempt to strengthen the “strategic partnership” between Berlin and Moscow, including the opening of a gas pipeline from Russian Dan Marino-Pipelines over the Baltic Sea exclusively between Russia and Germany (see “Gazprom controversy” below).
Schröder’s tax policies were also unpopular; when the satirical radio show The Gerd Show released Der Steuersong, featuring Schröder’s voice (by impressionist Elmar Brandt) lampooning Germany’s indirect taxation with the lyrics “Dog tax, tobacco tax, emissions and environmental tax, did you really think more weren’t coming?”, it became Germany’s 2002 Christmas No. 1 chart hit and sold over a million copies. The fact that Schröder served on the Volkswagen board (a position that came with his position as minister-president of Lower Saxony) and tended to prefer pro-car policies led to him being nicknamed the “Auto-Kanzler” (car chancellor). Las Ketchup is a Latin Grammy Award nominated 4-girl group comprised of sisters Lola, Pilar, Lucía and Rocio Muñoz from Córdoba in Andalucia, Spain. They are the daughters of Juan Muñoz, a flamenco guitarist known as El Tomate (The Tomato). Prior to Rocio’s recent addition to the group in 2006, the other three girls had success with their worldwide hit “Aserejé (or The Ketchup Song)”.
After the 2002 election, the SPD steadily lost support in opinion polls. Many increasingly perceived Schröder’s Third Way program to be a dismantling of the German welfare state. Moreover, Germany’s high unemployment rate remained a serious problem for the government.
Youl’ll find it in the Chart-History XXL-section. I have just added the German Charts-History XXL with all the weekly positions in the Single-Charts (1971-2018). Schröder sent forces to Kosovo and to Afghanistan as part of NATO operations. Until Schröder’s chancellorship, German troops had not taken part in combat actions since World War II. With Germany having a long experience with terrorism itself, Schröder declared solidarity with the United States after the September 11 terrorist attacks. When Schröder left office, Germany had 2,000 troops in Afghanistan, the largest contingent from any nation other than the United States, UK, France, Canada and after two years Afghanistan.
In the summer of 2002 they had a major flamenco Europop fusion hit with “Aserejé” (released as “The Ketchup Song” in the UK and other countries), which reached or almost reached the top of the charts in many countries including Spain, UK, Italy, Greece, France, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, Romania, Argentina, Poland, Venezuela, Mexico, Peru, India, Australia and the U.S. commonwealth of Puerto Rico. However, it failed to chart on the U.S.

Billboard. Eventually Las Ketchup would be a tiny memory in the United States. Still worldwide, the trio became instant rivals to another Spanish female trio, Lunae, who released their debut single in Europe at the same time in 2003. The title and part of the lyrics were in Spanish. The hit also had an accompanying dance.
The group have not released any singles since 2006, but still perform together publicly around Spain and other countries. Las Ketchup (select “Singles” tab). The Official Charts Company. Retrieved on 24 January 2012.
The group is best known for the 2002 song, “The Ketchup Song” (Aserejé), which sold over 7 million singles. The group sold over 12 million copies with the first album, but the second did not achieve the same success. After the 2002 election, the SPD steadily lost support in opinion polls. Many increasingly perceived Schröder’s Third Way program to be a dismantling of the German welfare state. Moreover, Germany’s high unemployment rate remained a serious problem for the government.
As Chancellor, Gerhard Schröder was a strong advocate of the Nord Stream pipeline project, which aims to supply Russian gas directly to Germany, thereby bypassing transit countries. The agreement to build the pipeline was signed two weeks before the German parliamentary election. On 24 October 2005, just a few weeks before Schröder stepped down as Chancellor, the German government guaranteed to cover 1 billion euros of the Nord Stream project cost, should Gazprom default on a loan.
But under Eurovision rules, this song, which has already sold over 480,000 copies, is not eligible for entry into the Eurovision competition. All songs in the contest must be completely original and not previously released. ‘The Tax Song’ is set to the music of ‘The Ketchup Song’ – a recent international hit by Spanish girl group, ‘Las Ketchup’.
