Hubert Yves Adrian Giraud (born 1920) is a French composer and lyricist.

Giraud began his career playing the harmonica with Django Reinhardt's Quintette du Hot Club de France. In 1941, he was recruited by Ray Ventura to play the guitar during Ventrua's big band tour of South America. Six years later he joined Jacques Hélian's orchestra in scoring a series of post-war romantic comedies, including Georges Combert's 1951 feature, Musique en tête.

His title "Dors, mon amour" performed by André Claveau won the Eurovision Song Contest 1958.

He also wrote the song "Mamy Blue" in 1970.
