Dado Topic: I want to travel the road

Dado Topic, who will be rocking the scene in Helsinki for Croatia, spoke to about his dreams, his idea of heaven, his favourites in the contest and more. Dado takes us with him on a journey to Ithaca, a poem by Konstantinos Kavafis.

Dado, you have said that “ … more important than the goal itself, are the steps that you take, and the road that leads you to it…”. What is your goal in life?
My goal in life, after 40 years of living with music, is to make a difference, as it is said in Ithaca, to travel the road, with its ups and downs, but in the end, to know that I have left a legacy, my music and my songs…

In a previous interview you also stated that Eurovision for you is just another step towards heaven. What is heaven for you?

Heaven for me is the stage and the audience, singing together with me.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
