Tijana Bogićević - Tražim

Trazim - Tijana Bogicevic |

It's Thursday Revisit time, and I really thought I wouldn't be able to choose one of my Eurovision 2017 favourites from this week, but Tijana Bogićević pulled through with this awesome song that was released in 2010. This is so good, even though I don't know what she's singing about. It just shows how much of a great singer she really is. Watch Tijana Bogićević do her own thing in her music video for her song "Tražim".

Tijana Bogićević has had a lengthy career to date, with many singles released; however, she has yet to release an album; although, we could possibly hope one is on the way since she did represent Serbia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, even though she didn't qualify for the Grand Final. This song was her second official single and is one of her earliest singles with a high amount of views. The song is interesting and definitely one I could listen to over and over, although it's not so memorable. In English "Tražim" means "Wanted". The song and video are in memory of Tijana Jurić, who was a Serbian girl that was kidnapped and murdered on 26 July 2014.

The music video is interesting and has a Jessica Simpson "With You" feel to it, but much more of a lower budget. Regardless, it works well and it's so nice to see Tijana Bogićević acting as this sweet and innocent woman.

Mainly a performance piece, with various defining scenes. My favourite is definitely the beach scene, which definitely shows off Tijana Bogićević as a brilliant performer.

The other scenes are more profile shots of Tijana Bogićević. She doesn't do herself justice in this visual, being much more relaxed and calm, rather than using the camera to her advantage.

Overall, the music video is subtle and extremely simple. This would probably work better if it had been a high budgeted music video; instead, it comes off lazy and bland. This is quite disappointing, but there are some great shots throughout.

Serbia Entry: Tijana Bogićević - In Too Deep

In Too Deep - Tijana Bogicevic |

Another great song and artist that just missed out on the Grand Final; however, at least Tijana Bogićević is a part of my Eurovision Song Contest 2017 Special. I much prefer the music video over the staging production of this song during the second Semi-Final. "In Too Deep" is an amazing song that I could listen to again and again. She represented Serbia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, she gained 98 points during the second Semi-Final coming 11th, just three points short from Denmark's Anja with "Where I Am"; she got 53 points from the jury vote and 45 points from the televote. Watch two dancers perform as if they're submerged in water, "In Too Deep" of one another's love in this music video of Serbia's Eurovision 2017 song by Tijana Bogićević,

Tijana Bogićević has been singing for many years. She first came to prominence when she released "Cudo". She has released many singles, her first being in 2009, and previously entered the Serbia national selection in 2009, titled Beovizija, but only made it to the semi-finals. She next went on stage of Eurovision 2011 as a backing singer for Nina. Now, through internal selection, she got the Eurovision 2017 spotlight on stage but missed out on making the Grand Final by three points. Regardless, she's gained more fans from around the world, and I'm totally interested in what she brings next. Her song and performance reminded me of Ira Losco's "Walk On Water". This song was written by Borislav Milanov, Joacim Persson, Johan Alkenas, and Lisa Desmond.

The music video is mainly a performance piece, that sees Tijana Bogićević on a metal hoop which is attached high above; almost like a swing. She looks serene and confident up there, high above.

The other side of this music video is a man and woman who are dancing to this song; interpreting it into this choreographed dance scene that has a lot of watery elements to it - just like the song.

It works well, but I feel there isn't a lot of substance to this music video. It's very basic, yet at the same time it's been edited well and filmed well. The water scene was a nice added surprise, and yet there isn't much going on in the water either.
