"Ćiribiribela" is the ninth and final studio album released by BIJELO DUGME. "Ćiribiribela" is critically considered to have been Bijelo dugme's best album in their fifteen year carrier. Goran Bregović pushed for softer sound to its fullest on "Ćiribiribela" which is stylistically close to the band's previous studio album "Pljuni i zapjevaj moja Jugoslavijo". "Ćiribiribela" is perhaps best remembered for containing one of Bijelo dugme's best known songs, the traditionalist, brass loaded "Đurđevdan je, a ja nisam s onom koju volim", which became an instant classic upon its release. In contrast "Lijepa Naša", often considered one of the band’s least popular songs, Bregović (who is half Serbian, half Croatian) combined the Croatian anthem "Lijepa naša Domovino" with the Serbian World War I traditional "Tamo daleko" to form the chorus of the song, this proved very unpopular as ethnic tension among the people of Yugoslavia was on the rise at the time which would eventually boil over into full scale Yugoslav wars in the 1990s.

"Pljuni i zapjevaj moja Jugoslavijo" is the eighth studio album released by BIJELO DUGME, and the first to feature vocalist Alen Islamović (formerly of the heavy metal band Divlje jagode). Goran Bregović had first approached Alen Islamović to join Bijelo dugme after the departure of the bands original lead singer Željko Bebek in 1984, however, Islamović rejected the offer and Bregović eventually recruited the young and inexperienced Mladen "Tifa" Vojičić. After recording 1984’s self titled album things began to deteriorate within the band, Vojičić’s drug and alcohol dependencies coupled with an un-professional approach frustrated the elder Bregović who was forced to fire Vojičić in October 1985. In April 1986 Islamović received a second offer from Bregović this time accepting to join the most famous band in Yugoslavia. The album was notable for featuring Yugoslav national hero and Central Committee member Svetozar Vukmanović-Tempo singing the Partizan song "Padaj silo" at the beginning of "Pljuni i zapjevaj moja Jugoslavijo".

"Bijelo Dugme" is the seventh studio album released by rock group BIJELO DUGME. Due to Bijelo dugme's usage of the famous painting by Uroš Predić for the album's cover the most widely used name for the album is "Kosovka djevojka", despite it officially being a self titled album. "Kosovka djevojka" marks the return of folk music elements most prominent on song "Lipe cvatu, sve je isto k'o i lani" and oriental on song "Za Esmu". The album produced by Goran Bregović was recorded at several locations with Mufid Kosović and Milka Gerasimova as sound engineers. Bora Đorđević, frontman of the rock band Riblja Čorba made a guest appearance in the song "Pediculis pubis", having co-written it with Goran Bregović (Bregović would, in return, make a guest appearance on Riblja Čorba 1985 album "Istina", singing with Đorđević in the song "Disko mišić"). Other guest appearances included, the Croatian folk group Ladarice, the Macedonian gajda player Pece Atanasovski and the folk instruments orchestra of the Radio-Television Skopje and Sonja Beran - Leskovšek who played the harp. It was the group's first album since the departure of former frontman Željko Bebek who was replaced by Mladen "Tifa" Vojičić. Despite his talents, Tifa's stint as Bijelo Dugme's lead singer would be a short one, due to personality clashes, lack of professionalism, and drug and alcohol abuse causing friction between Tifa and the other band members, particularly Goran Bregović who would go on to fire Tifa in October 1985.
