Dick Annegarn (born in The Hague, 6 May 1952) is a Dutch rock singer-songwriter who sings mostly in French, although on occasion Dutch and English. He spent his youth in Brussels, and after having learned to play guitar he went to Paris, where he recorded his first album in 1973, which was very successful. But the album nearly never happened, as his money had run out and he was ready to return home before finding a producer for his songs at the last moment. This is the subject of his best known song, "Bruxelles".

He is one of the most well-respected current day troubadours of the chanson, plus a charismatic and irreverent performer. He does not like the musical trade and prefers an underground lifestyle.

His "outsider" status as a gay man was also the subject of his 'Un' Ombre' album.
