Political use of the song[edit]

Modrá je dobrá was composed by Ondřej Hejma. It is inspired by song Colours by Donovan. Hejma didn't intend it to be a political song even though he was angry with Sarajevo assassination and was telling his friend it is going to be anthem of the Civic Democratic Party. Song became popular after its release and some prominents members of the Civic Democratic Party asked Hejma if they can use it during campaign. Song then became anthem of the party.[1] Hejma himself supportedd the Civic Democratic Party.[6]

In 2017, Žlutý pes performed at meeting of Realists. Modrá je dobrá was one of performed songs. It was the most significantly appreciated song at the meeting.[7]

Text[edit]

Czech version:[8]

Modrá je planeta, kde můžeme žít Modrá je voda, kterou musíme pít Modrá je obloha, když vodejde mrak Modrá je dobrá, už je to tak.

Modrá je Milka - ta naše kráva Modrá je prej v Americe tráva Modrá je údajně i polární liška Senzačně modrá je moje vojenská knížka.

Jako nálada když zahrajou poslední kus Modrá je naděje láska i moje blues Je to barva, kterou mám prostě rád Modrá je dobrá, už je to tak.

Modrá je Raketa - ta moje holka modrá je vzpomínka na Mikyho Volka velká rána je modrej přeliv modrý voko má i černej šerif

Jako nálada když zahrajou poslední kus Modrá je naděje láska i moje blues je to barva kterou mám prostě rád modrá je dobrá - už je to tak

Jako nálada když zahrajou poslední kus Modrá je naděje láska i moje blues je to barva kterou mám prostě rád modrá je dobrá - už je to tak

English translation:

Blue is a planet where we can live Blue is the water we need to drink Blue is the sky when a cloud comes in Blue is good, it's already.

Blue is Milka - our cow Blue is grass in America Blue is also supposedly polar fox My military book is sensationally blue.

Like a mood when they play the last piece Blue is the hope of love and my blues It's the color I just love Blue is good, it's already.

Blue is Rocket - my girl blue is the memory of Miky Volek a big blow is a blue spill the blue vocal has a black sheriff

Like a mood when they play the last piece Blue is the hope of love and my blues it's the color I just like blue is good - it is already so

Like a mood when they play the last piece Blue is the hope of love and my blues it's the color I just like blue is good - it is already so
