"Džuli" (Cyrillic: Џули; English translation: Julie) was the Yugoslav entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1983, performed in Serbo-Croatian by Montenegrin singer Daniel Popović.[1] The song was also called Julie in some parts of the country.

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, placing 4th in a field of 20.

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