The band RIVA, ESC winners of 89 representing Yugoslavia, just released a new album "The Best of Collection" with the most famous hits of the group from Zadar.
RIVA debuted in 1988 at Zagrebfest and in the next year they won the Eurovision Song Contest in Lausanne with the song "Rock Me" by Rajko Dujmić and Steve Cvikić . The mega-hit "Rock Me" also placed 4th in Nashville at the festival Distant Accords Award. In 1989 they released the self-titled album, which includes a few hits such as “Sretan ti put”, “Kad bi dečko bila ja” or “Ja te volim”.
The second album, “Srce laneta” was released in 1990, and has hits like “Meni mama neda da”, “Nije fer”, “Sretni dani” and “Suzo moja , piši” among others. Although they released only two studio albums, the group left his mark in the Croatian music history, and the success of the song "Rock Me" is elusive to many artists who want to gain popularity outside the Croatian borders.
The Album "The Best of Collection" contains a total of 21 songs and a bonus track , "Rock Me" in English version .
