Du bist Musik was the Austrian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1980 in The Hague performed by Blue Danube.

The song is a love ballad, likening the beloved to music - specifically a bewildering array of composers and dance styles. Contest entries have historically name-checked locations and people, however the first verse of this song is generally regarded as the apogee of this tradition.

The song was performed first on the night preceding Turkey. At the close of voting, it had received 64 points, placing 8th in a field of 19.

Marty Brem, who was part of this group, would go on to be the Austrian representative the following year.
