Serbia's Eurovision Song Stolen?

There is a striking similarity between the Serbia's Eurovision song and an albanian song performed last year in Top Fest music festival in Tirana, Albania, by Soni Malaj.

We think it deserves attention, even by Eurovision authorities.

How about opening your ears? Two different songs and two different ladies. But the BIG difference is that Serbia won, and Shiptaria didn't even got to see the finals... xD

E ljudi dragi.Ja sam iz BiH i ona pjesma je bila stvarno bezveze,scenski nastup da negovorim a marija(ja sam iskreno mislio da je musko).E pa ona lijepa djevojka puno ljepse izvodi onu pjesmu a navikli smo da srbi samo kradu podvaljaju i samo zele na prevaru da dobiju nesto.Uz ALLAHOVU pomoc ovo ce da se sazna te vi cete opet da izgubite ono sto ste ukrali.Sve se vraca sve se placa.

A very essential part of the song - the refrain - is plagiat in my opinion.

Do not worry, a Danish newspaper is investigating the matter. The story is on the news paper front page.

It is a very serious matter, and the Serbian song will be disqualified if it is true.

Kind regards from
Kirsten, Denmark

Some must report the plagiarism to EBU. They say they will not take any action onless there is an official complaint of the "theft".

PS: The EBU contact page is http://www.ebu.ch/en/contact/index.php - I would guess Legal department has to be approached.

I suppose Ndarja's songwriter must take action as it it his/her rights that are violated.

pershendetje,

nuk me befason qe kenga eshte e vjedhur,Serbet vetem te vjedhin din,ata jane hajna qe vjedhin nga pasuria materiale dhe kulturore e popujve tjere.Turp per europen qe legalizon plagjiature te tille.Duhet tu miret titulli duhet t denohen sepse nuk eshe hera e pare.Ku eshte europa dhe ligjet e tyre mbi mbrojtjen e te drejtes autoriale.Nothing surprises me,Europe should do something because author s rights were violated.In the name of justice something should be done.

Dear readers,

within 20 years all songs will sound the same. So lets try focussing on the positive aspects! Look at those thousands of people in the streets of Belgrado, singing together. Just 9 years ago the country was at war and this seemed impossible. Eurosong is all about bringing people together, all across Europe! Spread the message: PEACE !!

You’re must be kidding right? After reading your comment and then start to watch video I thought I’m watching something else. There are no similarities; Albanian words can hardly reach my ear (music is so dominant) and in Serbian song is quite opposite! I don’t even see any similarities in the beat … but then I don’t search needle in the haycock.
As someone posted on The Sun portal "Its most likely Albania stole this song from Mariah Carey" so do grow up!

Sorry, but apart from somewhat similar "ballad" rhythm and instruments, melodies of these two songs are completely different. Trust me, there's no escaping "Molitva" anywhere in Serbia these days - if you know what I mean - so there's no way my ear wouldn't react if there were any significant similarities whatsoever.

But your girl sure is beautiful. :)

Greetings from Belgrade.

Listen up people.
No one is 100% sure if that song is "Plagerised" thats right, the macedonian song composer didnt actually claim that the song is "stolen", so please stop thw accusations. Anyway, its got nothing to do with any of us but the song writers themselves, so why cause conflict between eachother. I can understand some of you may have strong beliefs but dont deny OR accuse anything until
there is and actual final result. I dont know what has happened with the songs, perhaps there was Plagerism, perhaps it was just a coincidence..who knows! Im albanian my self and have nothing against anyone, after all we are still people and one nation really!

Hi there,
I do not understand why should it be such a big deal. After all the music is for everybody. It is only positive that the Serbs took some part of the Albanian song. It was better for Serbs and better for Albanians.

Wonderful judgement. Still asking myself where the people's ears are at the moment! Every single comment about this "stolen Song conspiracy" is just to laugh about. It is always the same. Every time Serbia wins something, it was manipulated, what the most Serbia hating people think. If Serbia did not win the contest nobody would say anything. That is so ridiculous from you people. I think that Albania misuses the Serbian winning song to promote their own singer. Unbelievable. What a shame for all Serbia hating countries which think that they are "European".

Did anyone heard the previous "stolen song"? "Lane moje" has a lot more richness in its sound and the melody is based on four tones. Come on people, you have to start asking urself out of billions of songs, u can always find two similar songs. Especially if it is based on four tones. Go to piano, try to make urself some melody. Most uneducated ones can make a melody of only four different tones.
The starts of refrain of the both songs are similar, but rest is totally different. and to start is just lost one tone and then one up tones. Come on... That totally doesn't mean that the song is stolen.
Also, in the same blog post, there is one, the most important part no one dont want to look on.
"This statement was backed by Maki, the composer of the song "Ndarja", who says that while those similarities do exist, the melodic base is different."

How it is backed by composer who said that the melody base is different?

Then who to listen, the singer of the song (she didn't made the song, she just sings it), or the real author, or better to say, composer.

People hope that this situation will not be left in the middle.Experts can verify if the song was stolen or not and then the singer must apply to EBU.It is a shame what happen.And by the way the Albanians werent the first who has claim for the stolen song it was the Swedish who first claim for this injustice.So move over yourself this is not about anybody hating anybody neither about jelousy.Is just about TRUTH.

Well I totally agree with Kirsten.We should not let this situation without an ending.Soni must claim for her right and the organizator of the Eurovison must make a decision.This is not a small matter.What a shame!

Well,...look at the bright side of all this debate... this was a good opportunity for Soni to get publicity outside Albania...and extra publicity for the serbian song as well... not many people follows the Eurovision Song...

MOLITVA is not a copy of NDARJA. Even your singer (Soni Malaj) agrees. Why don't you?

The only people who can really judge this are people who dont speak neither albanian nor serbian. That way u dont listen to the words just the song. And to me the beat sounds the same in both songs.
I gotta say though the albanian singer is so hot where as the serb singer looks like a man (lesbo).

There is no even similarity between these songs. Same songs? You are kidding? BTW. Molitva is a piece of bulshit, as well as whole Eurovision contents. You all just blame yourself.
