Song: Molitva


Composer: Vladimir GRAIĆ

Video and mp3:


Ni oka da sklopim,
postelja prazna tera san,
a život se topi
i nestaje brzo, k’o dlanom o dlan.

K’o razum da gubim,
jer stvarnost i ne primećujem,
još uvek te ljubim,
još uvek ti slepo verujem.

K’o luda, ne znam kuda,
ljubavi se nove bojim,
a dane, žive rane,
više ne brojim.

Molitva, kao žar na mojim usnama je,
molitva, mesto reči samo ime tvoje.
(I) Nebo zna, kao ja,
koliko puta sam ponovila,
to nebo zna, baš kao ja,
da je ime tvoje moja jedina

Al Bogu ne mogu
lagati sve dok se molim,
a lažem ako kažem
da te ne volim

Marija dreamed of entering the world of music as a child. She knew that music would be her only occupation. She finished high school and music schools and studied management.

She made her first public performance at the age of 12 and attracted great attention due to her equisite voice and a song unusual for a girl of that age. To everyone’s surprise, she decided to sing a very demanding song – Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You”.

In 2003, her first solo album “Naj, najbolja” (“Simply the Best”) was released and that was the beginning of her music career. In 2003, she participated in the Budva Festival with the song “Gorka cokolada” (“Bitter Chocolate”) and in 2004 with the song “Bol do ludila” (“Unbearable pain”) which brought her the first prize. She is considered to be one of the most talented singers in this part of the world.

In 2005, she won the first prize at the Radio Festival with the song “U nedelju” (“On Sunday”). She has received a hatful of awards from juries, journalists and colleagues, the best interpretation awards and numerous special prizes in the neighbouring countries.

After these great accomplishments, Marija released the second album “Bez ljubavi” (“Without Love”). Her first solo concert held at the Sava Centre in Belgrade showed that she had become a real music star.

Marija Serifovic won the Serbian national final – Beovizija 2007. She received the highest score both in the semi-final and the final. She is one of the best female singers in Serbia. Her voice is filled with strong emotions and has an amazing range of expression.

Music is her life. Whenever she is on the stage, she feels immense love and happiness. Undoubtedly, that is the key to her success.

Molitva is not the best song ever in this edition of Eurovision. I onestly think that this award with several diplomatic events are just another way to say we are sorry for the problems that you had and you have in the balcans. Seams that we forget that it is important to vote for a song that we like even if the song is performed by our neighborns that we don’t like. So Eurovision must remain or in this case to become a SONG CONTEST not a game for political reasons or good neighborhood.


muj bueno pero esta maria es lesbian a ella les gustan las mujeres no los ombres es una traisionera e stupida es mucho lesbian es ke asco uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu no lo puedo ni escutar la cantante por esa lesbian uuuuuuuuu

What the people are saying? I Cant believe it…
You didnt Watched Kenan Dogulu – Shake It Up Shekerim???
Far Better….
Turkish singer must was first…
Balkans giving points to neighboors.. classical esc .. bah..


This was one of the crappiestsongs of the context. I was really surprised not only that it made it among the firsts…but that was also going to win…
I really can’t yet decide wich wan was better between the Georgian and the Bulgarian…(third russians fourth ciprus, fifth israel, sixth Turkey, Seventh Ukraine my personal rank).
But evidently this stuff still going (and me that i criticize my fellows italians that still likes melodic music.)

I hope that at least the text is not meaningless…
This song simply has nothing new to say on music.
Milan Kundera would lafn to this comments: he would call it coltural relativism 😀
