You are in my blood – Zdravko Colic

Zdravko Čolić was hugely popular in the late 1970s and 1980s. I was a kid when he filled the Red Star Stadium (which normally seats 90,000 people for the soccer games, when the field itself is not full of people). It is incredible to see him coming back after a 15-year break, visibly older (and not dancing on stage any more) and fill the stadium again! And all those thousands of kids who are singing along and know all the lyrics were not even born when this song, for instance, was a hit – 1985:



Pogledom me miluje
k’o da me dodiruje
i svaki put
kao da je prvi
Ja stalno mislim prestat ce
iz cista mira nestat ce
al’ pozuda ne prestaje
ti si mi u krvi

Toliko dugih godina
uzimanja, davanja
ostajem posljednji i prvi
Zbog tebe sanjam Cigane
i smisljam slatke prevare
al’ djavo se ne predaje
ti si mi u krvi

I ako te odvedu
Cigani cergari
ili te ukradu strasni haremski cuvari
Ako te odvedu
ja cu da poludim
bez tebe ne umijem vise jutrom da se budim

Ako te odvedu
sve ce da se srusi
Pamti me k’o prijatelja, cuvaj me u dusi
i onda
kad mislis da je prekasno za snove
za sve

Toliko dugih godina…

I ako te odvedu…
