Johnny Jordaan, pseudoniem van Johannes Hendricus van Musscher, (Amsterdam, 7 februari 1924 – aldaar, 8 januari 1989) was een Nederlands zanger en vertolker van het levenslied. Hij is bekend geworden door zijn liederen over Amsterdam en in het bijzonder over de Amsterdamse Jordaan.

Johnny Jordaan was the pseudonym for Johannes Hendricus van Musscher (7 February 1924 – 8 January 1989), a Dutch singer of popular music, in particular the genre known as levenslied, a Dutch variety of the French chanson. He was well known for his songs about the city of Amsterdam, especially the Jordaan district (the genre dedicated to the neighborhood is known as the Jordaanlied), which he sang in a typical "hiccuping Mokum vibrato", "Mokum" being the Hebrew-derived nickname for the Amsterdam inner city area. In the 1950s, Johnny Jordaan rose almost instantly to the level of national celebrity and became the "uncrowned king of the Jordaanlied", and his hit song "Geef mij maar Amsterdam" is one of the songs Amsterdammers identify with most.
