    Zdravo! Dobrodošli u Hrvatsku! Hello! Welcome to Croatia!

    FSC visits this country for the first time! Our retro contest will be held in Croatia, which got this win last month courtesy of @navi , who crushed the competition with this gem:


    Zagreb lies close to the Adriatic and has over a million people in the metro area. The nice thing for us voters in Zagreb is that the Grič cannon is fired everyday to mark when it is noon, so you really have no excuse for being late this month

    As far as things to do while you pass the time, well, I mean, it's a big city so there are museums (if you're feeling particularly lonely, the Museum of Broken Relationships might give you solace) and beautiful city squares, but for my money, I'm going to walk around the city in pursuit of finding the Devet pogleda, or Nine Views, a city wide art installation of the solar system. Or perhaps the Villa Rebar, the ruins of a former dictator where you can descend into some secret tunnels, though Google says that's closed so wish me luck.

    Also, apparently there is some called štrukli , a cottage cheese strudel which looks delicious.






    As a reminder, this is Retro Month, so please take care with the release date of your entry.


    RULES


    01. This is a monthly contest, modeled after Eurovision. You need to have at least 10 posts to your credit to take part.
    02. You can pick any country in the world.
    03. The artist you choose has either to be a citizen of the country they'll represent or to have been born there. At least HALF of the people from your act must be from the country you choose.
    04. Your song must be over 10 years old. For Retro FSC 2019, eligible entries must have been released before January 1st, 2009.
    05. Eurovision entries are not allowed. Songs from concurrent Eurovision heats are not allowed either.
    06. The song cannot have been a UK/US Top 40 hit, as it would give it an unfair advantage.
    07. The song can be a remix.
    08. The song cannot be a cover version.
    09. If your song features a sample, please state it early enough, so the other contestants can decide whether it is acceptable or not by poll.
    10. You cannot vote for your own country.
    11. Discussion about one's favorites during the contest is NOT ALLOWED, as it has the potential to influence the voting.
    12. PLEASE try and choose a song not everyone would know, the point is to discover new artists.
    13. If a song becomes or is found to be ineligible at any time before the voting is over, it will be disqualified.
    14. Make sure you understand all the rules before you take part. You will need to devote about 2 hours of your time to this game to listen to all the entries at least once. Do a little research on your entry before you present it, be sure that it doesn't violate any rules, and check here to see if it has taken part before.


    TIMELINE

    I had a song in mind, but just realized it was used in a previous retro, so will bring the US back for now.

    If someone really wants the US, just tell me and I will pick a different country

    As long as no one takes Croatia, it wouldn't be a problem. I think it was KindOf last month who reserved Canada but ended up going with New Zealand.

    1. Bulgaria
    Star Tattooed feat. Ava - Make Me High (Enzo Mori & Stephan Clark Radio Edit)

    The Bulgarian duo Star Tattooed broke the charts in its country, France and Finland. The single recieved biggest international support in the home of Eiffel Tower and, logically, French DJs Enzo Mori and Stephen Clark (also known as Starting Rock) remixed the track for their market. The result is brilliant, tbh.

    If there's any problem with this video, let me know and I'll change it asap.
    ...and I say bye, bye, my happy season, see you next year! The last summer Top 10 - 20.09.2019!

    Argentina

    So many national classics (y'all foreigners are probably going to hate), I don't know which one to choose.

    I still can't get over the fact El Amor Después del Amor (presented by @Leomedar) ended last. We're talking about one of the few DIAMOND records in the history of my country (a million sales), wtf.

    Sorry for getting away from the main theme in this thread, but as I see that here are many users from Croatia too, maybe somebody can help me to complete my chart-list collection of Radio Zagreb Top 20 (later HRT Top 20) from the period 1984 to 1994. Is there somebody from Croatia who noticed this weekly charts or the 90's charts from Radio Split and Radio Dalmacija?
