I couldn’t leave you just with one post… 😉
I bring to you two duets. Classics.
First one, Vesna Pisarović (who made I think just one or two albums) and Giuliano (Is it a surprise I had a HUUUUGE crush on him? 🙂 )
Second, Hari Rončević and legendary Doris Dragović… Ok, you listen, I’m going to sing this songs as loud as I can 😀
My blogger friend Mara inspired me for doing this. I had an idea in my mind to share with you some Croatian songs for a while now, and I knew that I will do this regularly, but she inspired me to do it today. 🙂
I hope you will like this idea… For me, music is universal and although I mostly listen to foreign singers, I have tons and tons of songs in Croatian that I grew up with and that I love… They are 99% older songs, because today’s scene really doesn’t interest me. They are trying to be “mainstream” and mostly go one of two ways; first trying to please English-based audience they write songs in English and imitate the West, or they try to please equivalent of country music in Balkan and go more east (imitating Serbian singers)
I can’t find myself in either of this categories, so when I listen to Croatian music, I listen to… You can say oldies. 🙂
This is a song called “Flags” from Parni Valjak, a group that I listened to a lot when about 14/15 years old. The lyrics are beautiful, so if anyone is interested I can translate them the best I can.
For now, the chorus:
My flags are always the same color
On them the love is ruling
My flags.. Never on half spear
Love is not giving up
This songs is called “Tempera” like paint. From Gibonni… Both songs are Croatian classics and everyone knows them. 🙂
