"Du hast den Farbfilm vergessen" (Translation: You Forgot The Color Film) is a pop single by German punk artist Nina Hagen and her band Automobil, released in 1974 prior to Hagen's punk career. The song depicts a young girl scolding her boyfriend for forgetting to bring the color film for their camera while on vacation, and is widely considered to be a subtle satire of the monochromatic Communist state.[1]
