"Ljubim te pesmama" (Cyrillic: Љубим те песмама; English: I'm kissing you with songs) was the Yugoslav entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 1992, sung in Serbian by Snežana Berić, also known as Extra Nena. The song was composed by Radivoje Radivojević and Gale Janković.

On the night of the contest Berić performed 20th, following Italy's Mia Martini with "Rapsodia" and preceding Norway's Merethe Trøan with "Visjoner". At the close of the voting the song had received 44 points, placing 13th in a field of 23. Swedish host conductor Anders Berglund conducted the song; he also played accordion during the song because there was no accordionist in the orchestra.

This was the final entry for Yugoslavia in the Eurovision Song Contest. Shortly before the contest Bosnia & Herzegovina and Macedonia declared independence, Slovenia and Croatia in June 1991. Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Slovenia started participating in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1993. Macedonia first participated in 1998. Serbia & Montenegro started participating in 2004. After the split of these two countries they started participating separately in 2007.
