Some countries never bother making a music video to promote their song internationally. Others put a lot of money and effort into a beautiful setting and a story that interact with the mood of the music and lyrics. To have a whole package is often an advantage when people see and hear the previews for the very first time. This is something the ex-Yugoslav countries are very good at. My absolute favourite preview video is "Nostalgija", Croatia's entry 1995. Unfortunately it is nowhere to be found on YouTube. Instead I have listed some other favourites of mine in no specific order. Watch them and vote for yourself in our poll!
