She stole our hearts ten years ago with an ode to Serbia’s history and culture at Eurovision 2008. And now Jelena Tomašević is doing it again with the new song “Dobro jutro ljubavi” (Good morning my love).

After nearly two years away, the Serbian songstress returns to the Balkan music scene with another romantic opus. Building on the success of her two most recent songs, “Ime moje” and “Da mi je da mi se vrati”, Jelena picks up where she left off — singing straight from the heart. In a recent interview she said the song was dedicated to her husband, Ivan Bosiljčić, and said she had faith in the song, especially after her daughter Nina kept humming and singing the chorus on repeat.

“Dobro jutro ljubavi” digresses somewhat from Jelena’s most iconic discography as it isn’t the typical Balkan ballad one may have expected. Instead of despairing at the pains of love, Jelena celebrates the feeling in all its beauty with a colourful music video set in the plains and fields of northern Serbia. Commenting on the style and approach of the song, Jelena said she sought to fill a gap in her extensive repertoire. She wanted to spread a message that happiness awaits everyone as long as they are patient and believe that the best is yet to come.

The music video is reminiscent of Jelena’s previous hit “Da mi je da mi se vrati”, as both feature some of the best landscapes Serbia has to offer. While she may have wallowed through golden wheat fields in her last music video, Jelena, as well as the couple in the video, are now dancing through them, enjoying every second of their blossoming romance. The video is heart-warming and full of smiles, taking the viewer back to that feeling of young romance without a care or worry in the world.

You can read a rough translation of the lyrics below.

Dobro Jutro Ljubavi lyrics — Jelena Tomašević

Original lyrics

Tvoje ruke moje ruke
kroz život vode
tvoje reči tišina
mom srcu gode

U tebi sam pronašla sve
i sunce i hlad
u tebi sam pronašla mir

Dobro jutro ljubavi
osmehom me zagrli
dok dani se broje
sve dodje na svoje
svako svoju sreću dočeka

Dobro jutro ljubavi
večno sa mnom ostani
do poslednjeg daha
bez imalo straha
ja ću za tebe živeti i umreti

Moje nebo moje more
u vedra jutra
slušaj srce prati snove
za bolje sutra

U tebi sam pronašla sve
i sunce i hlad
u tebi sam pronašla mir

English translation

Your hands, my hands
Take me through life
Your silent words
Soothe my heart.

I found everything in you
and the sun and the shade
I found peace in you

Good morning my love
Hug me with a smile
While the days go by
Everything comes
To those who wait for happiness

Good morning my love
Stay with me forever
Until the last breath
Without any fear
I will live and die for you

My sky my sea
In clear mornings
Listen to your heart, follow your dreams
For a better tomorrow

I found everything in you
and the sun and the shade
I found peace in you

Just saying, she enters this in Beoviziya and Serbia has another potential top 5 on their hands

She could have won Eurovision in 2005 if the national final hadn’t been rigged against. At the very worst, she would have come second after Helena. She would have destroyed Chiara with the ballad Zeljko had written for her that year. I still love Oro but it doesn’t come near the first one.

Hmm explain? 0.0
Was she trying to go for Serbia & Montenegro in 2005 with a song written by Zeljko?
Oro was in 2008

Yes she did, it was an amazing song but all the Montenegrin juries gave her small amounts of points or no points at all.

Same thing in 2006 with another Serbian song. That’s why Serbia & Montenegro withdrew that year. Funny fact: They still voted in 2006 and the Serbian spokeswoman said something like: “We couldn’t give a song this year but I promise next year, we will give you the best.” And they actually did on of course won with Molitva.

Of course, Zeljko is a must!
Plus, he deserves a victory as well!

She had 3 songs by another composer/writer before Zeljko. She won a contest called 3K dur in 2002 (singing Whitney Houston songs), she competed in Slavjanski Bazar in Belarus in 2003 and got 2nd place, she was lead singer for a traditional music/dance group in her hometown for many years, and she’d been winning singing contests since she was 7 or 8. So she was doing well before Zeljko, though just didn’t have a break out song until Jutro at Beovizija in 2005. And Zeljko hasn’t really written her any songs since 2008 even though she’s signed to his record… Read more »
