Loud Croatian message Mama ŠČ/Glasna hrvatska poruka Mama ŠČ

A Croatian friend from Cambridge recently suggested I listen to the song that will represent Croatia at this year's Eurovision Song Contest. When I listened to the song, I just wrote "Terrible" to my friend and immediately sent a message to a group of friends from Zagreb with the comment: "I just listened to Mama ŠČ. Have people gone crazy?". Namely, the song was chosen in a Croatian competition and all Croatian cities voted. Almost all of them gave the song “Mama ŠČ” the maximum number of points. A friend from Cambridge answered me, "That's the best song that Croatia has ever sent to Eurovision. Now listen again."

I did listen one more time. The meaning is something like this: ŠČ is the Russian letter Щ . Mama ŠČ is Mother Russia. "Mom bought a tractor" implies that Russian President Putin bought his friend, Belarusian President Lukashenko a tractor for his 70th birthday. Symbolically, the song says that Russia bribed Belarus, a country from which evil also spreads. Mother Russia loves a “moron”, a “little crocodile psychopath” who threatens Armageddon, i.e. the destruction of the world. In a symbolic and satirical way, the Let 3 group sends a message to the world of the threat Putin demonstrates.


In one week, the song Mama ŠČ has had 3 million views on YouTube. When you take into account the great interest of the listeners, it is obvious that the Croatian representative has already achieved success. With the choice of its song, Croatia sent a loud message to everyone listening on what they think about Russian aggression and their president.


If, after listening to the song for the first time, you feel like you'd rather have an endoscopy than have to listen to it again, that's fine. I felt that way myself. I would be a hypocrite to say that the song is wonderful because it's really not to my taste. But the message is powerful, and that's why I congratulate the Let 3 band and wish them success in the upcoming competition.

Listened to the song 1x - was shocked😳

2x - good rhythm but the words don't make sense🤔

3x - so this really gets into the ear.

10x onwards - I cry when I realized the beauty of this song...

The most beautiful anti-war song ever.. For all wars...

What geniuses

2) Dragana Radovanović

Congratulations, neighbours❤️ and let me add: there are some of us from Serbia who understood the message of the song. **F the media ❤️

3) Simona Lešnjak

This year I will vote for the first time at the Eurovision Song Contest. Vote for Croatia! Well done, neighbors! 👏👏👏Pozz from Slovenia!

4) Federico Pifferi

5) B0b1_D

You are the strongest, Brother Croats, I love you from Macedonia, may God let you win the Eurovision Song Contest, if I can, I will vote for you 30 times ❤️🇲🇰

6) Yurii Lukomiski

This is masterpiece! So many senses and problems are described in this performance. Thank you Croatia for this entry. Hvala Hrvatska. 🇺🇦❤️🇭🇷

7) Patrick Pastor

I don't know whether I love it or hate it. All I know is that I respect it.

8) merlenews

This is brilliant! I'm not surprised that many people don't understand it though... most of the eurovision folks are accustomed to glittery girls singing about love, and then comes Croatia with Stalin singing about Armageddon and all the shitstorm happening in Europe.

Glasna hrvatska poruka Mama ŠČ


Nedavno sam dobila poruku od hrvatskog prijatelja iz Cambridgea da poslušam hrvatski izbor za pjesmu koja će Hrvatsku predstavljati na ovogodišnjoj Evroviziji. Kad sam pjesmu odslušala samo sam napisala prijatelju “Užas” i odmah poslala poruku na grupu prijatelja iz Zagreba sa komentraom: “Sad sam odslušala Mamu ŠČ. Jesu ljudi poludili?”. Naime pjesma je izabrana na hrvatskom natjecanju i glasali su svi hrvatski gradovi. Gotovo svi su pjesmi Mama ŠČ dali maksimalan broj bodova. Prijatelj iz Cambridge mi je odgovorio “To je najbolja pjesma koju je Hrvatska poslala na Evroviziju ikada. Sad poslušaj jos jednom.”

Posluala sam jos jednom. Značenje je otprilike ovako: ŠČ je rusko slovo Щ . Mama ŠČ je Majka Rusija. “Mama kupila traktora” implicira na to da je ruski predsjednik Putin kupio za rođendan svom prijatelju, bjeloruskom predsjedniku Lukašenku tractor za 70. rođendan. Simbolicki pjesma kaze da je Rusija potkupila Bjelorusiju, zemlju iz koje se takodjer širi zlo. Majka Rusija voli morona, malog krokodilskog psihopata koji prijeti Armagedonom, dakle uništenjem svijeta. Na simboličko-satirički način grupa Let 3 šalje poruku svijetu o prijetnji koju Putin predstavlja za svijet.


U tjedan dana pjesma Mama ŠČ ima 3 milijuna pregleda na You Tubeu. Kad se uzme u obzir veliki interes slušaoca očito je da je hrvatska predstavnica već postigla uspjeh. Hrvatska je izborom svoje pjesme poslala glasnu poruku svima i na jedan upečatljiv način rekla što misli o ruskoj agresiji i njezinom predsjedniku.


Ako vam se učini, nakon što pjesmu odslušate prvi put, da bi radije na endoskopiju nego da morate odslušati opet, to je u redu. I sama sam se tako osjećala. Bila bi hipokrit da kažem da je pjesma divna, jer nije po mom ukusu. Ali poruka je moćna i ja zato čestitam grupi Let 3 i želim im uspjeh na predstojećm natjecanju.

Neki od komentara ljudi sa You Tuba su ispod:


1) iv-deto

1x poslušao pjesmu-ostao šokiran😳

2x - dobar ritam ali riječi nemaju smisla🤔

3x - pa ovo stvarno uđe u uho.

10x pa nadalje - plačem kad sam shvatio ljepotu ove pjesme...

Najljepša Antiratna pjesma ikada.. Za sve ratove...

Kakvi genijalci

2) Dragana Radovanović

That’s so funny 😂Bravo!!! I would vote for you!! Greetings from Ukraine 🇺🇦❤️🇭🇷

7) Patrick Pastor

Ne znam volim li to ili mrzim. Sve što znam je da to poštujem.

8) merlenews

Ovo je briljantno! Ne čudi me što mnogi ljudi to ne razumiju... većina eurovizijskih ljudi navikla je na blještave djevojke koje pjevaju o ljubavi, a onda dolazi Hrvatska sa Staljinom koji pjeva o Armagedonu i svim sranjima koja se događaju u Europi.Tri milje pregleda u tjedan dana 😂… imamo pobjednike Eurovizije 2023 🎉🍾👏
