Miroslav Ilić (Serbian: Мирослав Илић; born December 10, 1950 in Mrčajevci, PR Serbia FPR Yugoslavia), is a popular Serbian folk singer-songwriter. He is known for his powerful vocals and emotional lyrics. Before becoming a musician he took Electrical courses at a University of Skopje. Nicknamed Slavuj iz Mrčajevaca (The Nightingale from Mrčajevci), he has worked together with several popular Yugoslavian musicians such as Lepa Brena.[1] In recent times, he has spoken out against the new generation of Serbian music videos, claiming that music videos are becoming more and more sexually suggestive and inappropriate for general audiences.

Discography[edit]

I loved the girl from the city[edit]

The first hit song of Miroslav Ilić was "I loved the girl from the city" (Serbian: Волео сам девојку из града) composed by Obren Pjevović, a fellow country man of Ilić, and authored by Dobrica Erić.[2] Pjevović first offered this song to Predrag Živković Tozovac and Predrag Gojković Cune, but they rejected it as non-commercial. In 1972, after several major record companies refused to publish, it Pjevović and Ilić accidentally, on their way to railway station in Belgrade, passed by the representative office of Diskos record company and decided to approach to them. Although this song was not corresponding to contemporary modern trends, manager from Diskos decided to take a big personal risk and publish the song. Very soon it became one of the biggest hit folk songs in Belgrade and Serbia.[3]
