"Another Summer Night" was the Maltese entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2001, performed in English by Fabrizio Faniello.

The song is a moderately up-tempo number, with Faniello describing an idyllic summer night "by the ocean/Under the palm trees, you and I". He sings that this is "magic" and presents the scenario as a perfect way to be with his lover. In contrast to the fast tempo songs beginning to dominate the Contest by this point, the song is quite laid-back with an acoustic guitar (first introduced immediately after Faniello sings "A guitar in my hand") providing a melodic counterpoint.

The song was performed twenty-first on the night, following Estonia's Tanel Padar and Dave Benton with "Everybody" and preceding Greece's Antique with "Die For You". At the close of voting, it had received 48 points, placing 9th in a field of 23.

Despite the comparatively low placing, the song has become popular among Contest fans, with Faniello performing it as part of a medley at the Congratulations special in late 2005.

It was succeeded as Maltese representative at the 2002 contest by Ira Losco with "7th Wonder".
