This year Dora is celebrating 20th anniversary. Croatia has participated in every ESC since our debut 1993.
So, pick your all time favourite croatian entry

p.s. This years' entry won't be in the poll cause it has been announced that we will also choose our favourite Dora on this years' event, but before presentation of our latest entry. I thought it would be nice to hear from other countries and compare results

That entry is indeed amazing! Actually 1997 was my first ESC, so we started watching almost at the same time :)

Yeah, we did. Guildo Horn is the reason I started watching ESC

Croatia had so many good songs in the 90's, 1995 & 1996 were great, too.

^ 1995 = Best Huljic song, but you rank Vanna higher, which is a Huljic song? :p

But I like your top 5. We have the same top 2. :)

vatroslav_cro
27th January 2012, 14:10
sorry, whose top 5?you talk to me?

ah yes I realised now..."ONE OF THE BEST Huljić's songs ever as well" should be:)

27th January 2012, 18:10
Ah, I love Nostalgija! :D xheart

And it came in my perhaps favourite ESC-year of all time, 1995 - sooo many great songs that year!! (Norway, Sweden, Israel, Croatia, Spain etc)

But Marija Magdalena comes a close 2nd for me :)

Also liked Croatia's entry in 1996, 1998 and 2010.

Voted for 1993 because it's our first entry, and it's so emotional. :')

Maria Magdalena is definitely the best entry of Croatia at ESC

Isabella
30th January 2012, 02:02
The best - Neka mi ne svane :D
"Lako je sve" is probably my 2nd fave Croatian entry, but performance in semi ruined everything :(

And have to add the worst - Moja štikla :twisted: (ashamed of that entry :lol:)

I think you should be more ashamed of 2007 and 2011. :lol:

"Vjerujem u ljubav" is not that bad. I still listen to that song :lol:. "Celebrate" was also ruined on stage :(

I thought both were bad. :p

And I liked Seve's entry! :lol:
Although, it would've been awesome if she had gone to ESC with "Gas Gas". :rolleyes:

yep.

štikla wasn't that bad. in the end, it was 12th in finals. I would kill for 12th place now xshrug

Isabella
30th January 2012, 21:38
I don't care about Štikla's position in the final. 12th or not, it's a *rap song for me xshrug Still can't believe that won our NF in 2006 among many better songs. But that's just my opinion.

LakZaNokte
30th January 2012, 23:14
I understand that.
but I still don't think it's the worst. at least it's remembered. nobody even remembers the songs atfer that. for me, that's much worse xshrug

Isabella
30th January 2012, 23:59
For me it's different. I prefer not to be remembered at all than remembered by *rap :mrgreen:

I love almost all old croatian entries, but can't decide between "Neka mi ne svane"; "Marija Magdalena" and "Poljubi me"

Song from 2007 was not that bad. For me the worst Croatian entry was "Više nisam tvoja" Klaudija Beni - even today I can't understand how that girl won Dora :confused:

Vukovi Umiru Sami is by far the best! Don't Ever Cry, Nostalgija and Neka Mi Ne Svane are other favorites.

1999. Marija Magdalena - Doris Dragović (4.) > I still wonder how it didnt win..

14th March 2012, 12:45
I like the fact that Croatia usually sends an entry in their own language! All those songs in English get so boring.

My favorite from Croatia is Feminnem, I am still shocked that song did not even make it to the final!

as78
19th April 2012, 00:15
For me favorite is:
2005 Vukovi umiru sami - Boris Novković
It's also one of my favorite songs on ESC from time I'm watching (1999) from all entries. I often listen to this song every time one again and again.

Also this one I vey lieke.
1999. Marija Magdalena - Doris Dragović

Croats are almost always good songs, and I agree with previous post, particularly in their own language.

To be honest, Daria was in my top 10 of all 2011 songs for a while.
I still think song is very good.

Croatia is my favourite Ex-YU country, but maybe the most underrated one....

My favourite is 2004's entry! followed by 1998 and 2006.

This year is also very good!

Croatia had generally good songs, but my all time favorite will be 1993, followed by 1998.

Now that I've just re-listened to all the songs from the last 13 years from Croatia (which I haven't done for ages) I must admit that there's more to say: these are the other good Croatian songs:

2005. Vukovi umiru sami xheartxheartxheartxheart
2008. Romanca xheartxheartxheartxheart
2000. Ostani (kada zaspu anđeli)xheartxheartxheart
2010. Lako je sve xheart

2011. Celebrate - Bad song NONO

All the others are OK.

Awful songs sometimes qualify, good ones sometimes stay in the semi... this is one of them.
