Croatian Song to be Played on Mars

Lauren Simmonds

Yes, you read that correctly.

A famous 1980’s song from one of Croatia’s most popular singers, Miso Kovac, is set to ”take to the stage” at perhaps the most unusual venue yet, Mars.
We currently live in an era where the once impossible is being made possible, almost on a daily basis, and when, back in 2012, a recording of the song ”Reach for the Stars” by the well-known artist Will.I.Am was beamed back to Earth by NASA from the surface of Mars by the Curiosity rover, it proved that we really are living in technologically incredible times.
Since NASA beamed the musical piece from another planet for the first time in history, songs from various musicians and bands have been played on Mars, including songs from Queen, Beach Boys and Sting, and in 2013 when Curiosity rover was celebrating its first anniversary of its mission to Mars, one if the most read Croatian news outlets, 24sata, sent NASA a little musical request… 
The well-loved song, ”Poljubi zemlju” (Kiss the ground) by Miso Kovac was requested alongside lyrics translated into English language, and three years later NASA have granted the request, saying that they were impressed by the emotive lyrics of the song.
NASA responded to 24sata with the message that the lyrics of Poljubi zemlju are extremely touching and that it has made it into the selection of songs to be played on Mars, adding that the song will be played soon on rover Opportunity one of two active rovers currently residing on the famous red planet (Curiosity being the other)..
Miso Kovac was reportedly delighted at the news, saying that when they play his song on Mars it will be his biggest music success, and the biggest for a Croatian musician ever.
