"Waarom?" ("Why") was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1963, performed in Dutch by Jacques Raymond.

The song was performed fourteenth on the night (following Sweden's Monica Zetterlund with "En gång i Stockholm" and preceding Monaco's Françoise Hardy with "L'amour s'en va"). At the close of voting, it had received 4 points, placing 10th in a field of 16.

The song poses rhetorical questions, with Raymond wondering why the question "I love you - do you love me too?" is so powerful in the human experience.

It was succeeded as Belgian representative at the 1964 Contest by Robert Cogoi performing "Près de ma rivière".
