by Laura Gudim 61 views

Boris Novković, this year's Croatian entrant at the Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv with the song Vukovi umiru sami, received the honour of being included in Croatia Records' Golden Collection.

The double album of 36 tracks begins with Boris' biggest hit, Kuda idu izgubljene djevojke, from 1986, and includes his Dora hits Elois (2002), Emily (1994) and Pjesma moja to si ti (1995) but not his winning song from this year, which placed 11th in Ukraine last May, as the collection was started before Boris' last two albums were recorded.

On winning Dora in 2005, Boris compared himself to the Croatian tennis player Goran Ivanisevic. For Goran it was fourth time lucky after being three times runner-up at Wimbledon, whilst for Boris is was sixth time lucky at the Eurovision Song Contest. His first attempt was at the former Yugoslavian national final Jugovizija where he was runner-up in 1990 with the song Dajana, which he also composed. His other three 'unsuccessful' attempts were Elois (2002), Oprostit ćemo sve, Na mom jastuku (2000) and Pjesma moja to si ti (1995).
