"Gori vatra" (English translation: "The fire is burning") was the Yugoslavian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1973, performed in Serbo-Croatian by Zdravko Čolić.

The song was performed ninth on the night (following Switzerland's Patrick Juvet with "Je vais me marier, Marie" and preceding Italy's Massimo Ranieri with "Chi sarà con te"). At the close of voting, it had received 65 points, placing 15th in a field of 17.

The song is a love song, with Zdravko Čolić singing that the love between him and his lover was burning and was inside them.

It was succeeded as Yugoslavia representative at the 1974 contest by Korni Grupa with "Moja generacija".
