"Núna" (Now) was the Icelandic entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1995, performed in Icelandic by Bo Halldórsson.

The song is a ballad, with performer telling his lover that they should stay in the present for as long as possible to enjoy each other's company. He sings that he will have to leave in the morning, so they should make the most of what they have now.

It was performed seventh on the night, following Russia's Philip Kirkorov with "Kolibelnaya dlya vulkana" and preceding Austria's Stella Jones with "Die Welt dreht sich verkehrt". At the close of voting, it had received 31 points, placing 15th in a field of 23.

The song was succeeded as Icelandic representative at the 1996 Contest by Anna Mjöll with "Sjúbídú".
