Turkey loves Macedonia :D Greetings from Turkey
dobra pjesma makedonijo pozdra iz hrvatske
stupid song, and the fyromians should not be allowed to sing 'macedonian' when referring to themselves..
@aenaosdorieas What the fuck are you talking about? Macedonia (Filip II) conquered Greece. Alexander the Macedon just continued with what his father (our Filip) started. You Greeks were just used by Alexander so he can conquer more nations. Furthermore, don't flatter your self and stop writing political comments on music videos! I think you have bigger problems with your country now. LEAVE US ALONE! UNITED MACEDONIA FOREVER!!!

@mstefanovski98 Jao, jaro, izvini, molim te. Hvala VAM puno za 12 poena!!! Stvarno ste pravi komšije, a ne k'o oni šupci meraklije Hrvati. Inače, ova mi se pjesma jako sviđa. A tek ova gitara(Telecaster) što je Vlatko svira... Ja sam eto navikao da se prepirem sa ovim ostalima, pa eto... :( Izvini još jednom, i mnogo vam hvala, još jednom!
Stefan Krstic
I am from Macedonia and i honestly hate the song! It doesn't have lyrics. Vlatko Just says ,, Jas makedonec, a taa rusinka'' aka. ,,I am a Macedonian, but she is a russian. Thups Up if you agree
Petar Vidović
@mstefanovski98 A obe zajedno ne mogu se porediti sa Merlinovom!
@nikson04 Finally a Bulgarian that get's it. Well done sir. I like you ;)
@deftone19 Yeah, its kind of insulting when some one says FYROM, our county name is Republic of Macedonia nothing more nothing less.
@semprom13 yes type in google "macedonia eurovision 2011 lyrics english" and choose "2011 • 4LYRICS | The home of Eurovision lyrics" and then scroll down and click on Vlatko Ilievski's picture and then go to "Translation"
@deftone19 400 world famouse historians from world class universities such as Oxford , Cambridge , Yale are all protesting against the historical propaganda that is promoted in Fyrom(Former Yugoslavian republic of Macedonia) Just read w w w . macedonia-evidence . org ( it is also published in a book) Everyone has a right to a national identity but no one has the right to base it on others peoples history and identit y(They have human rights to keep their history and identity)
@jk34695 By the way, Fyrom is not the short version as "USA" because you wont find "Fyrom" in the constitiution of Macedonia. Also noone but people that hate Macedonian and its people use that word. Diplomats use the whole name or only "Macedonia". The people in Macedonia also have Internet and Universitys and due to the fakt that i have family in Macedonia i know that they where not taught untruth. Please proof that.
@jk34695 It does not matter what a couple of people in macedonia think. Its written in the Constitution that there are no attempts to territorities fo Greece. You still couldt proof, that those territorial claims are tought in the macedonian schools. It is a right of every human to have a national identity. The macedonian people dont think that it was claimed of other poeople. They have very good arguments for that position. Why does it hurt you so much, that you hate a whole nation?
nice..... I think hes on drugs but ya nooooo!

@TomoJohno lerr

LMAO! Not even the lead singer, the accordian player?
Tom Johnson
is right scotts mate
@deftone19 Just google "United Macedonia" and see endless of sites that claim Greek land and history. That is what your people are taught in Fyrom by historical propaganda. The government in Fyrom has falsified all its history. It is NOT a human right to claim others peoples history , identity and land when you don't have a single historical fact. Your people in Fyrom have a right to now about their real past(Bulgarian). By they way Fyrom is the short version in a similar way as USA is.

0:40 I am Macedonian !
74 people get drunk and clicked the dislike button by mistake -OR- 74 people are greeks or other haters of Macedonia!
@vantas16 Are you jealous of the song?
Don Necko
Bravo for Macedonia!!!!!!! Macedonia is one <3
@jk34695 The Official name ist not Fyrom. That is a shortcut for Former Yugoslavian Republic of MAcedonia. When you say, that the name ist Fyrom than you are lieing. It is not taught at school that 33% fo Greece belong to them. Please proove that. In Germanys we have a Word: The Parents Name the Baby, not the Neightbours. It is not uo to greece to tell the people of Macedonia who they are. It is non of your buisiness and its Rascist aswell.
@deftone19 I was just answering people that talk about a "United Macedonia". This is something people from Fyrom (The official name in Eu . Nato , EU , Euro vision etc) are taught in schools, that 33% of Greece belongs to them. The government have for years suppressed their real Bulgarian roots and replaced it with historical fabrication that they are related to ancient Macedonian Greeks. So it seems the racism is the opposite around? The Macedonians in Greece have no rights?

I really liked this song. One of the best I think. Shouldve gotten into the final, at least!
@jk34695 Why is that so important? I really dont get it.
@jk34695 Why cant you concider that the macedonian people have an other interpreation? Why cant they have one? Why do you hate them for that? They dont threathen you. If you think that they live in a lie, then let them, if they are happy with it. Because of people like you, they make war. Macedonia is a little country and ot wont harm Greece at all. Leave them alone and stop FYROM them. This is so racsist of you. And i know what i talk about, i am from germany.
They should have gotten to the finals.
Robert Eriksson
wtf is this!
@saninova87 Of course not everyone has their own interpretation of history. If you look around the world in every university has a common definition of history - a collective research. So Tsar Samuil , kuber , Saint Naum are all Bulgarians Alexander is Greek So when one country try to do their own interpretation without any facts it is consider to be political propaganda. That is what is going on in Fyrom today
Macedonia 4ever!
@saninova87 Fyrom was part of the Turkish superpower for 520 years. History is documented by thousand of years of research. Everything from old inscriptions , old books, bibles , ancient remains. Thousand and thousands of historians from different countries. History is not a buffe where you pick and choose from to fulfill some need of history. It is about facts that can be traced back from generation to generation. If history is falsified people will go to war on fairy tales and myths
@saninova87 You can go to any encyclopedia and you will get the same facts. No difference
@saninova87 No matter what you feel historical facts will not change Tsar Samuil , Saint Naum . Clement , Kuber will always stay Bulgarians Alexander will always stat Greek I have no problem with you creating your own identity but you cant change historical facts. Imagine your children going to a university and learn real history. That would be an awful experience
Wikipedia: Saint Naum of Preslav (Bulgarian: Свети Наум Преславски [sveˈti na.ˈum preˈslavski]) (or also known as Saint Naum of Ohrid) (c. 830 – December 23, 910) was a medieval Bulgarian scholar, writer and teacher.[1][2][3][4] Information about his life before his return from Great Moravia to Bulgaria is scarce. According to the hagiography of Saint Cyril and Saint Methodius by Saint Clement of Ohrid, Naum took part in their mission to Great Moravia and in 867 or 868 became a priest in Rome.
@saninova87 Wikipedia: "Saints Cyril and Methodius (Greek: Κύριλλος καὶ Μεθόδιος, Old Church Slavonic: Кѷриллъ и Меѳодїи[more]) were two Byzantine Greek brothers born in Thessaloniki in the 9th century.[3][4][5][6][7][8][9][ They became missionaries of Christianity among the Slavic peoples of Bulgaria, Great Moravia and Pannonia. Through their work they influenced the cultural development of all Slavs" Slavs only in fyrom where history has been falsified to fit a new "Macedonian' identity
@saninova87 All your ancestors where Bulgarians. The problem is that communist in Yugoslavia renamed them to "ethnik Macedonians" when a new modern slavic Macedonian identity was created. Of course this is fraud and historical fabrication that have no place in a democratic world.
@saninova87 Tsar Samuil was the Bulgarian emperor of the Bulgarian empire He was the enemy of the Macedonia of that time. Lets repeat , Tsar Samuil was a Bulgarian and the enemy of Macedonia of that time. His enemy was Basil the second which had the nickname Bulgarslayer because of his victories over Tsar Samuil. Any reader can go to wikipedia and confirm this. Of course this does not fit your new identity
@TheDurtbird When Greeks take about Macedonia they dont mean Fyrom. They mean the real/original Macedonia that is within Greece boarders. Fyrom was never part of Macedonia. During ancient times fyroms territory was part of ancient Paeonia. During mideval times it was part of Bulgarian empire. Before 1944 it was called Vardarska. It was communist that renamed it to "Macedonia" Also remember Fyroms and its people were the longest under the Turkish rule in the world - 520 years
@saninova87 The "Macedonian' language was created 1944 in communist Yugoslavia based on a Bulgarian dialect. Your language is based on the alphabet the Greek monks Cyril and Metodius created for the slavs/Bulgarians. The Bulgarians Saint Naum and Clement are the ones that continued to spread this new Bulgarian/slavic alhabet. There has never existed a "Macedonian" language. That is why you have no books written in this Bulgarian dialect before 1944. Everything can be verified in Wikipedia
