Ekatarina Velika is the second studio album by the Serbian rock band Ekatarina Velika, released in 1985. Before this release, the band was called Katarina II, and had released a self-titled album in 1984.

The group personnel included the new drummer, Ivan "Firchie" Fece (ex. Luna, Jakarta), who had replaced VD, and excluded Gagi Mihajlović. The album was recorded at the SIM studio in Zagreb with Vladimir Smolec as producer. Guests on the album were Massimo Savić (backing vocals), at the time the lead singer of the Croatian band Dorian Grey and Tomo in der Mühlen (on guitar) from the rock/new wave band Karlowy Vary.

In 2006 "Oči boje meda" was ranked #6 on the B92 Top 100 Domestic Songs list.

Track listing[edit]

All songs and arrangements written by Ekatarina Velika.

All lyrics by Milan Mladenović, except tracks 2 and 8 by Margita Stefanović and track 7 by Ekatarina Velika.

  1. "Oči boje meda" (Honey Colored Eyes) – 3:36
  2. "Zaboravi ovaj grad" (Forget This City) – 3:03
  3. "Tatoo" – 2:49
  4. "Hodaj" (Walk) – 4:06

However, the lyrics printed on the back cover of the original LP album feature the songs in a different running order, which suggests that they might have been intended to be released in that order originally. The lyrics were printed as following:

  1. "Hodaj"
  2. "Olovne godine"
  3. "Modro i zeleno"
  4. "To sam ja"
  5. "Ruke"
  6. "Tatoo"
  7. "Zaboravi ovaj grad"
  8. "Oči boje meda"
  9. "I've always loved you"

The title of the song "Tatoo" is misspelled (instead of "Tattoo") in all releases.
