Rascal - Silver Wings

The Yugoslavian band Srebrna Krila (Silver Wings) competed in the 1988 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest with 'Mangup' ('Rascal' in English). They did rather well, ending up on sixth place, and receiving votes from 14 of the 21 competing countries.

I didn't really notice their song until years later, when a friend pointed it out to me as an interesting track. After listening to it a couple of times, I had to agree. I never expected to find a single of it, though: Yugoslavia is not known for its thriving record industry, and the war that took place not long after 1988 didn't help. But lo and behold: two years ago a single turned up. A great opportunity to own two versions of this interesting Eurovision track.

My collection: 7" single no. 3449
Found: Record fair, Utrecht, 2006
