Moja domovina ("My Homeland") is a Croatian patriotic song originally recorded in 1991 as a charity single by a supergroup called "Croatian Band Aid" (Hrvatski Band Aid) featuring a number of prominent local musicians from all musical genres. The song was arranged by Nikša Bratoš while the music was composed by Damir Lipošek, Vedran Božić and Husein Hasanefendić. The song was released in the initial stages of the Croatian War of Independence.

The full list of involved singers included: Doris Dragović, Oliver Dragojević, Jasna Zlokić, Danijela Martinović, Sanja Doležal, Meri Cetinić, Dino Dvornik, Aki Rahimovski, Matko Jelavić, Emilija Kokić, Severina Vučković, Arsen Dedić, Zorica Kondža, Boris Novković, Jasmin Stavros, Ivo Amulić, Vlado Kalember, Krunoslav Slabinac, Ivo Robić, Gabi Novak, Tereza Kesovija, Tajči, Josipa Lisac, Zvonko Špišić, Dragutin Mlinarec, Đuka Čaić, Zdravko Škender, Ivica Šerfezi, Ljupka Dimitrovska, Dalibor Brun, Milo Hrnić, Mišo Kovač, Davor Gobac, Stanko Šarić, Zdenka Vučković, Jura Stublić, Mladen Bodalec, and Ljiljana Nikolovska.

Apart from its humanitarian purpose, the group was significant in that it marked the beginning of an independent Croatian music scene and the end of the Yugoslavian music scene. Among those rock groups who adopted a firm Croatian identity and participated in the single were Film, Novi fosili, Magazin, Parni Valjak, Psihomodo Pop and Prljavo Kazalište.

Although more than two decades have now passed since the song was first aired, its popularity hasn't diminished through the years. During the Croatian War of Independence it was often played to boost moral either among the soldiers on the battlefield or the civilians in their shelters. In recent times the song is usually sung during all important sport events and represents a symbol of unity and pride. According to numerous surveys, "Moja domovina" is the most popular patriotic song among Croatian citizens ever written.

Hrvatska radiotelevizija also played this song time its startup and closedown, from 1991 to 2000.

Lyrics[edit]

Croatian[1] English translation[2]
Svakog dana mislim na tebe
Slušam vijesti, brojim korake
Nemir je u srcima, a ljubav u nama
Ima samo jedna istina
Svaka zvijezda sija za tebe
Kamen puca pjesma putuje
Tisuću generacija noćas ne spava
Cijeli svijet je sada sa nama... Sa nama!
Moja domovina, moja domovina,
Ima snagu zlatnog žita,
Ima oči boje mora,
Moja zemlja Hrvatska.
Vratit ću se moram doći, tu je moj dom,
Moje sunce, moje nebo.
Novi dan se budi kao sreća osvaja
Ti si tu sa nama... Sa nama!
Every day I think about you
I listen to the news, I'm counting steps
Restlessness is in our hearts, love is in us
There is only one truth
Every star is shining for you
Stone is breaking, song is traveling
Thousands of generations is not sleeping tonight
Whole world is now with us
My homeland, my homeland
Has a strength of golden wheat
Has the eyes blue as sea
My country Croatia
I will come back, I have to come, this is my home
My sun, my sky
New day is awakening, conquers like happiness
You are here, with us
