His Eurovision song “Mizerja” may have failed miserably in Malmö, but Marko Skugor, the principle tenor of the now defunct Klapa s Mora, isn’t changing his Old World style. As his solo career takes off in the Balkans he is staying true to his beloved klapa. In fact he has just released a new single “Covik s mora”, which means “A man from the sea” in English.The song could have been produced at a Eurovision convention. Emilija Kokic, who won Eurovision 1989 with her group Riva, wrote the song with help from Goran Topolovac. He’s the man behind Marko’s Eurovision entry “Mizerja”.

In an interview for Dnevnik.hr, Marko described the song this way:

‘Covik s mora’ is a love song in which a sailor, who has traveled the whole world, refers to his beloved wife. The song has an interesting melody, a different arrangement, and it’s quite artistic.

Marko’s collaboration with the “Misery” team will continue. This summer they plan to release a new song which Marko promises will be romantic and catchy at the same time.

Covik s mora lyrics

You ask me what kind of man I am
I do not know how to respond
Ask the sky
It certainly knows
He saw what I was doing

Since I‘ve escaped
I’ve been sailing the sea
Passed the world and prayed to God for your soul to hug

To persuade you with one look

My darling, I‘m the man from the sea
Child of white stone
I tried hard bread with seven crusts
I have not yet calmed down

My darling, I’m a man from the south
Vulnerable soul from sea
As for my heart, it mocks  me because I have always loved you

“Failed miserably”, that is harsh! Don’t get too obsessed with rankings. Marko & the boys did a great job at the semi final. They should be proud that they represented Croatia with such a beautiful song. I still play it & love it.
