"Džuli" (Cyrillic: Џули; English version: Julie) was the Yugoslav entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1983, performed in Serbo-Croatian by Montenegrin singer Daniel Popović.[1] It was performed 12th on the night, following the Netherlands' Bernadette with "Sing Me a Song" and preceding Cyprus' Stavros & Constantina with "I Agapi Akoma Zi". At the close of voting, it received 125 points, and came 4th in a field of 20.

Daniel Popović also recorded song in English (Julie) and Hebrew (Julia)(as Daniel Popenthal).[2][3]

It became a hit in Europe, being covered by artists such as Swedish dansband Wizex on the 1983 album Julie as "Julie" with lyrics in Swedish by Tommy Stjernfeldt.[4]

It was succeeded as Yugoslav representative at the 1984 contest by Vlado & Isolda with "Ciao, amore".

Julie, an english version of the song also recorded by Daniel, became a Top 10 hit in 1983 at the European singles charts in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland.
