Daughter's rap tribute to Bhutto
The song by Bakhtawar Bhutto, 18, comes a year after the assassination and is entitled "I would take the pain away".
It pays tribute to her mother's "crazy courage" and describes her as "the epitome of benevolence".
"No comfort or ease. I'm begging you please, God bless the deceased," she laments in the song.
Praising her mother's "beauty and intelligence", the song says that the "whole world is weeping" over the murder.
"Shot in the back of your ear, so young in 54th year, murdered with three kids left behind, a hopeless nation without you, you are in all their hearts," it says.
The teenager, a student at Edinburgh University, then repeats the chorus line "I would take the pain away".
It has been played regularly on state-run television and has been posted on the video-sharing website YouTube.
"My mother was murdered. I don't even comprehend. Was it worth dying for? I'm walking through screened doors," Bakhtawar sings in English.

Has Pakistani politics improved since the loss of Benazir Bhutto, or does Pakistan need another heroic figure to rally around? Is her legacy being exploited by her widower, Asif Ali Zardari, in his presidency in Pakistan and to gain popular support?
