I have joined FSC in September 2010 so this edition marks my 10th year of participation in this amazing contest. Being part of this lovely community helped me discover tons of great music throughout this decade and I am so grateful for all of it. When I was thinking of what could be a good entry for this special occasion, I simply had no idea. A week ago I was driving home from the seaside vacation and instead of listening to my playlist, I played the radio instead. It turned out to be a good idea as it introduced me to the newest song of Magazin - possibly the most popular Croatian music group (or pop band) for decades already. I fell in love with the song on the first listening and then I thought "They could be THE artist I could send for my 10th year anniversary!" Some of you may wonder what makes them a perfect fit for this occasion? Well, only a few of current FSC members took part in FSC 19 in September 2010 when Magazin won with the song "Sijamski blizanci". One of the members also considers this song as his favorite song from all the FSC editions in 2010. Since they won on my first participation, it felt really great to send another of their awesome songs in the FSC 139.
Soooo for the September 2020 edition I'm going with an edgy-powerful-pop song that Magazin dedicated to the women around the world. The title of the song is "Samo da se zna (Jaka sam ti ja)" which translates to "Just so you know (I am strong)", and it also aims to spread the message that we can come out stronger through all the crisis, including the current pandemic. The song will also be presented as part of CMC Festival 2020, one of the most important music events in Croatia.
