Nadia's Theme is a piece of music composed by Barry De Vorzon and Perry Botkin, Jr. in 1971. It became associated with Olympic gymnast Nadia Comăneci during and after the 1976 Summer Olympics. The composition has been used as the theme music to the American television soap opera The Young and the Restless intermittently since the serial's inception in 1973.

Nadia's Theme hit #8 on the US Top 40 in 1976, and the album from which it was taken peaked at #42 on the Billboard 200; in 1977, it won a Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Arrangement.
