"Halay" was the Turkish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1984, performed in Turkish by Beş Yıl Önce, On Yıl Sonra.

The song was performed fifteenth on the night (following Germany's Mary Roos with "Aufrecht geh'n" and preceding Finland's Kirka with "Hengaillaan"). At the close of voting, it had received 37 points, placing 12th in a field of 19.

The song is about Halay (typical dance in Turkey and Middle East), the band sings that they dance and sing with much love and don't look upon foreigners as strangers.

It was succeeded as Turkish representative in the 1985 Contest by MFÖ singing "Aşık oldum (Didai didai dai)". However, this song was not quite as well received.
