"Summer Son" is a song by Scottish band Texas and was the second single to be taken from the album The Hush.[3] The song was released on 16 August 1999 in the UK and reached #5 on the Official UK Singles Chart. It remains one of the band's most known releases, partly because of the controversy surrounding the accompanying sexually implicit video.
