"Macédomienne" ("My Macedonian girl") was the 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.
