Miladin Šobić (Serbian Cyrillic: Миладин Шобић, born 7 January 1956, Nikšić, FPRY) is a Montenegrin singer and songwriter.

He was an active performer during the late 1970s and early 1980s in SFR Yugoslavia where his prominence had a regional character with popularity across Yugoslavia. His music is dominated by the sound of acoustic guitar, and has predominantly love and melancholic themes.


He was born on January 7, 1956, in Nikšić where he graduated high school. In high school, he started writing lyrics and composing songs. After finishing high school, he moved to Dubrovnik in order to pursue studies at the College of Tourism.

While he was a college student, he created some of his best known songs. In 1975, Šobić released his first song "To sam ja" (That's me), which was, at that time, an unofficial anthem among the college students in Dubrovnik.

A year later at the Festival Omladina (Youth Festival) music festival in Subotica he won second place with the song Daj nam neba (Give Us Sky). In 1978, he won the best lyrics award for song Bolesno ljeto (Sick Summer) at the Belgrade Spring music festival. Cooperating with the pianist Gabor Lenđel and studio musicians, Šobić released two albums Ožiljak (The Scar) (Diskoton, 1981) and Umjesto gluposti (Instead of Stupidity) (Diskoton, 1982). He had also recorded a third album called Barutana Ljubavi (Powder-mill of Love), but after his sister's death he decided to leave music and the album was never released.

After that he returned to living in his home town, Nikšić and never went back to his musical career, in spite of frequent rumours of his comeback.

In 2002, Ibrica Jusić, his friend, announced his comeback. Until today, his new never-before released songs are being discovered, and the unaffirmed rumours about his comeback keep appearing sporadically.

He also made music for theater play "Marko Kraljević Super Star" directed by Slobodan Milatović.[1]

On 30 January 2013, Šobić was admitted to hospital following a brain hemorrhage.[2]

In 2016, Šobić was awarded the July 13th award, the highest Montenegro's national award.
