("My Macedonian girl") was the "Macédomienne" Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1990, performed in French by Philippe Lafontaine, who also composed it. The title of the song is a portmanteau blend of the two words "Macédonienne" ("Macedonian girl or woman") and "mienne" ("of mine").
The song was performed third on the night, following
Greece's Christos Callow & Wave with " Horis Skopo" and preceding Turkey's Kayahan with " Gözlerinin Hapsindeyim". At the close of voting, it had received 46 points, placing it 12th in a field of 22.
The song is an ode to the "Macedonian girl" of the title – in effect Lafontaine's wife – and, as the lyrics make clear with their reference to the town of
Ohrid, to the Republic of Macedonia from which she hails.
It was succeeded as
Belgian representative at the 1991 Contest by Clouseau performing " Geef het op".
