The german songs of Zdravko Colic

Posted by Eurovision On Top on April 14, 2016 at 1:05 PM

In 1973, Zdravko Colic represented Yugoslavia in Eurovision with the song Gori Vatra.

Now it is public that one year later and just before the release of his first album, Ti i ja, the famous artist born in Sarajevo, signed a deal with the German arm of WEA record label and did two singles for that market.

German producers were of the opinion that his name was too difficult to pronounce for their consumers so they marketed him as Dravco. Soon, however, Čolić decided not to pursue his options in that country further mostly because he was unwilling to move to Germany.

Would he had the same succesfull career if was move to Germany?

Listen one of the songs in German which is a cover of Everything I own by Bread (1972), popularized by Boy George (1987):
