Tose Proeski - Jos Uvijek Sanjam Da Smo Zajedno

Almost 28 months since the brightest star on the Balkan's music scene faded away. This Sunday was Tose 's 29th birthday. 

One more release from him, post mortem. “Jos Uvijek Sanjam Da Smo Zajedno” is a master piece ballad that only proves the quality of the Macedonian mega star.

Four days ago, all the Balkan music elite were in Skopje, in “Boris Trajkovski Arena”, on the humanitarian concert dedicated to Tose Proeski. In front of more than 10 000 fans they promoted the tribute album, and the new video. The money from this concert and the album are going to be invested in the monastery that Proeski started to build above Krusevo, his home town.



Jos Uvijek Sanjam Da Smo Zajedno

Od kad te nema..ne mogu budan biti..
Jer sve sto zelim..u tome budes i ti..
Pa budan sanjam da snovi duze traju...
U svakoj prici ti si mi na kraju...

Ti si pocetak i kraj..
Ti si tama i sjaj..
Svaku mi nadu dijelis po pola..
Dajes mi mrvice sa svoga stola..
I znam...bez tebe ostat cu sam..
Jos uvijek sanjam da smo zajedno..
'Ko nekad davno ti i ja...
Al' jutro svaki put mi pokvari tu slatku prevaru iz sna...
Jos uvjiek sanjam da smo zajedno...
I da je sve 'ko prvi put...
Al' jutro nosi golu istinu...da sve je bilo uzalud..

Od kad te nema..
Nema ni pola mene...
Jer sve u meni od tog dana vene...
Pa budan sanjam da snovi duze traju...
U svakoj prici samo ti si mi na kraju...

Ti si pocetak i kraj..
Ti si tama i sjaj..
Svaku mi nadu dijelis po pola..
Dajes mi mrvice sa svoga stola..
I znam...bez tebe ostat cu sam..

Jos uvijek sanjam da smo zajedno..
'Ko nekad davno ti i ja...
Al' jutro svaki put mi pokvari tu slatku prevaru iz sna..
Jos uvjiek sanjam da smo zajedno...
I da je sve 'ko prvi put...
Al' jutro nosi golu istinu...da sve je bilo uzalud...

Russia wins away, Macedonia struggling

Macedonia- Russia 3-4 (1-1; 0-0; 1-1; 1;2) 

Skopje, Republic of Macedonia. Mladost swimming pool. Attendance 1000 (app.)

Macedonia was defeated once again, this time by Russia, in the fourth round of the World League. The match was powerful, with lots of duels and strong defence. Both team had equal chances of wining, even though the experience was on the Russian side.

The young Macedonian team proved again that belongs in the elite of the world water polo sport, despite the fact that Republic of Macedonia has only two indoor swimming pools, both of them in the country capital. The newcomers impressed coach Nonkovic, let’s just hope they will keep up the good work.

The only negative thing on this match was the Serbian referee, who directly influenced the result of the match, with his decisions especially in the third quarter.

One more magical night for the Macedonian star. Few hours ago Pandev proved that he is one of the best players on the planet. The derby match between the Milano titans, AC Milan and FC Inter Milan, finished with a 2-0 victory for Mourinho's squad.

Inter had one thing that AC Milan didn't. They had Goran Pandev. The Macedonian star in just two weeks proves that he will deserve all of the 15 million Euros, money that he has to earn in the next 5 years.

Pandev was the star of tonights Milano derby match. He assisted Diego Milito in the first half for the leading goal, and demolished AC Milan's team with the second goal in the 66' minute from free kick. The goalkeeper Dida just followed the ball with his eyes, knowing that he cloud do nothing to stop the great Macedonian. 

Inter finished the match with just nine players, but that didn't stopped the "nero azzuri" to demolish the neighboring team. Ronaldinho missed a penalty shot for AC Milan.
