Mălina Olinescu Eu Cred
"Eu cred" ("I believe") was the Romanian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1998, performed in Romanian by Mălina Olinescu.
The song is a ballad, with Olinescu addressing a former lover. She tells him that she is still waiting for his return, and that she believes she is listening to him - thus the song will hasten his return. She asks him for "a sign that you will stay".
Due to the poor result, Romania was ineligible to take part in the 1999 Contest. As a "passive participant" (a country broadcasting but not entering the Contest), it was re-admitted the following year. Thus, the song was succeeded as Romanian representative at the 2000 Contest by Taxi with "The Moon".
