• In Response to: Macedonian Singers? History Mistakes! (Andy Dufresne)

I agree with you about certain things: f.e. in those times they spoke ancient greek, not macedonian, but as far as I know the entire movie is on english, the language that wasn't used there like EVER, so singing on one of the languages from the parts that did belong to the ancient Greece doesn't seem so strange. Second thing: except the End credit song, music, especially Sparta, Hector's Funeral and the Mourning women resembles the ancient greek music, believe it or not some of the folk music from all the countries that once were part of the ancient empires like Greece or the great macedonian empire still sounds like that. Wonder WHY???
And the last thing: there is no language and was never ever a language called YUGOSLAVIAN!!!!!!! Yugoslavia was the country that had 6 republics , and one of them was Macedonia and people there spoke and still speak macedonian! And they spoke it even during the osmanic occupation, and I'm sure you know how long that lasted! About languages: Slovenia has slovenian, Serbia serbian, Monte Negro slightly different serbian, Croatia croatian, and finally Bosnia and Herzegowina croatian-serbian. I'm not going to elaborate for how long they have been using them, because it will take too much of my time.
"Slavic" refers to a bigger group of languages.
And by the way, the name Yugoslavia ( Jugoslavija ) means jug=south, slavija= refers to Slavic nations. So please, maybe you should read a bit more about history of those parts, before you start criticizing others.
And just for the record, no, I'm not macedonian.
