"Halley" was the Turkish entrant to the Eurovision Song Contest 1986 in Bergen, Norway. It was sung by Klips ve Onlar in Turkish.

On the night of the final, the song performed in the eighth position (following Netherlands's Frizzle Sizzle singing "Alles heeft ritme" and preceding Spain's Cadillac with "Valentino"), and at the close of the voting had received 53 points, placing 9th in a field of 20.

The song is in praise of the famous Halley comet and the band's joy with it, with the objective to give a good new, Halley comet could be seen in Earth. This comet only can be seen from Earth every 76 years, and could be seen in 1986, named after the astronomer Edmond Halley. We'll see it again only in July 2061.

It was succeeded as Turkish representative at the 1987 contest by Seyyal Taner & Grup Lokomotif with "Şarkım Sevgi Üstüne".
