One has released the most sold album in the history of the country, the other is one of their biggest young stars. That is what describes the FYR Macedonian entry for this year's Europe's favourite TV-show.

The first time Gjoko Taneski appeared on the music scene was in 1996 at one of the biggest and most popular FYR Macedonian festivals, Makfest, when he performed the song Go, Don’t Fool The Heart (Odi Ne Go Mami Srceto) a song for which a new arrangement was recently made. 

Immediately after his first public appearance at Makfest '96, many people recognised Taneski’s talent which resulted with several collaborations with composers and songwriters and his career began to take off. Soon he started receiving awards at many festivals and still does so!

His musical career reached the peak in 2007 when his biggest hit was played on radio stations and television channels for months and Gjoko used this moment for promoting his first album Zbogum Najmila (Farewell Dearest). 

Only two years after, Gjoko showed and proved that he does not know the meaning of a break in a musical career by promoting his second album named Nikogas Dosta (Never Enough). His passion is travelling, getting familiar with new traditions, cultures and customs.

The writer of the song, 43-year-old Kristijan Gabroski, is one of the most popular and most productive FYR Macedonian composers, he is also a lyricist, an arranger and a producer.

He was a leader of the cult rap-rock-folk group Risto Bombata i Kuceska Tenija. They released two albums and a double single. Their first album is the best-selling album in the history of the FYR Macedonian pop and rock music.

I have the strenght A new day is coming And until then it will come again You are as cold as a stone and you are sitting next to me Don’t touch my lips That’s not you Let me dream And the dream with you is just a dream I have the strength To get over you Not to have you and not to see you I’m playing with my wings To fly over you Above all skies I’m going now To feel a warm wind in my face It’s a good thing to be free And alone Free and alone I have the strength To get over you Not to have you and not to see you I’m playing with my wings To fly over you Above all skies A new day is rising, a new day is rising A new day, a new problem You are by me but I’m still lonely I’m running away from everything I’m running away from you Young lady I need my self I want a dream, I wanted a dream And the dream with you is only a dream And I have the strength to realize That you haven’t been mine I have the strength To get over you Not to have you and not to see you I’m playing with my wings To fly over you Above all skies I have the strength To get over you Not to have you and not to see you I’m playing with my wings Above all skies
