Happy birthday Yugoslavia

Yesterday was the 71st birthday of now defunct socialist Yugoslavia. We celebrated by attending the concert of Goran Bregovic and his Wedding and Funeral Band. The tour marking 40 years since the establishment of Bijelo Dugme (White Button) band was aptly named "Who doesn't go crazy is not normal" (Ko ne poludi, nije normalan). We sang to the tunes we grew up with spiced up with the kick in the gut only a good Balkan brass band can provide. For a few bitter-sweet hours we felt united just like in the old times.
