Minna no Uta (みんなのうた), or Songs for Everyone, is a five-minute NHK TV and radio program which is broadcast several times daily. The program started on April 3, 1961. It is one of NHK's long-running programs.

The program is generally used as filler between programs. While many of the episodes are aimed at children, a large percentage are not, so the program enjoys a wide audience.

The program is used to introduce new songs from popular and new singers, as well as to highlight the talents of various animators and directors. A list of upcoming and currently airing episodes is listed monthly in magazines such as Animage and Newtype.
