Nenad Radulović (September 13, 1959 in Belgrade – February 12, 1990 in Belgrade), also known as Neša Leptir (Neša Butterfly) was a former Yugoslav rock musician, best known as the frontman of the pop rock band Poslednja Igra Leptira.

Biography[edit]

Radulović started his career as the singer and the leader of the pop rock band Poslednja Igra Leptira in 1979.[1] The band released well-accepted albums Napokon ploča (At Last, a Record; 1982), Ponovo ploča & druge priče (Another Record & Other Stories; 1983), Opet ploča - Srce od meda (Again, a Record - Heart Made of Honey; 1985), Grudi moje balkanske (My Balkan Heart; 1986) and Zajedno smo piškili u pesku (We Peed in the Sand Together; 1987) before disbanding in 1989.[1] During the same year, Radulović released his only solo album Niko nema što piton imade (Nobody Has what the Python Has), produced by Srđan Marjanović,[2] which parodied "turbo-folk music".[1] He started working on the new album, but managed to record only the song "Modra bajka" ("Blue Fairytale") before he died of a tumor on February 12, 1990.[1] The song, Modra bajka, was released for the first time on the Poslednja Igra Leptira compilation album Modra bajka - Best of (1997).[1]

Legacy[edit]

In December 2011, a plateau in Belgrade was named after Radulović.[3] In October 2012, a commemorative plaque in memory of Radulović was unveiled in Lajkovac.[4]
