What makes a song evergreen? A story, a message, a mood, an idea – something that resonates, generation after generation.
One Croatian evergreen song is Zagrebačkim ulicama by Jadranko Črnko, a song dedicated to life in Zagreb. Now, four decades since the song was released, Croatian musicians and actors and have got together, via mobile phones in one day, to record another version.
The initiative to remake the hit came after the devastating earthquake in Zagreb and came from the music programming department at HRT. The premiere of the video was shown during the evening news.
The song is opened by Prljavo kazalište’s Mladen Bodalec, and features Drago Diklić, Vojo Šiljak, Mario and Boris Mirković, Davor Gobac, Nina Badric, Boris Novkovic, Slavica Knezevic, Marko Torjanec, Bojana Gregoric Vejzovic, Janko Popovic Volaric and others.
