If the biblical theme of song number 18 (Noah) sounds familiar: yes, it was written by Tonci Huljic, who also wrote Marija Magdalena for Doris Dragovic in 1999!

2. Branka Delic: Obecao si Ljubav (You promised me Love)
3. Marina Kristic: O tome cu mislit sutra (I think about this tomorrow)

Danijel Beni is a cousin of Claudia Beni, last year's Croatian represent at the Eurovision Song Contest. The Croatian preselection DORA will take place from March 12 to March 14 in Opatija, with two semifinals.
