"Make My Day" was the Macedonian entry in the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest, performed in English by Martin Vučić.

The song is an up-tempo number, with Vučić telling his lover that he is tired of being mistreated by her ("You just try to make me cry") and that he is prepared to end the relationship over this. He tells her that she should "Try to play another way/Or I will find another love" and that she can "Take it all" if he ends the relationship.

Unusually for such a song, the performance was quite static. Vučić and his two male backing singers wore jackets, t-shirts and jeans and only moved slightly during the chorus - waving their fingers in time to the music. The three female dancers wore short floral dresses and were slightly more mobile than this.

As Macedonia had not finished in the top 10 in the 2004 Contest, the song was performed in the semi-final. Here, it was performed seventeenth, following Finland's Geir Rönning with "Why?" and preceding Andorra's Marian van de Wal with "La mirada interior". At the close of voting, it had received 97 points, placing 9th in a field of 25 and qualifying for the final.

In the final, the song was performed fifteenth, following Sweden's Martin Stenmarck with "Las Vegas" and preceding the Ukraine's Greenjolly with "Razom Nas Bahato". At the close of voting, it had received 52 points, placing 17th in a field of 24 and returning Macedonia to the semi-final at their next Contest appearance.

It was succeeded as Macedonian representative at the 2006 contest by Elena Risteska with "Ninanajna".
