Southside is the debut album of the Scottish rock band Texas. It was released on 13 March 1989, and peaked at no. 3 in the UK. Within three weeks of release, the album was certified Gold by the British Phonographic Industry for sales in excess of 100,000 copies.
The album's first single "I Don't Want a Lover" was released in January 1989 and peaked at no. 8 in the UK. Following the release of the album in March, which entered the UK Album Chart at no.3, further singles from the album were less successful. The second single, "Thrill Has Gone", peaked at no. 60, while a third single, "Everyday Now", fared little better at no. 44. Despite this, a fourth single, "Prayer for You", was released in November but stalled at no. 73 in the UK. Despite only one hit single, the album spent 29 weeks on the charts. The album cover art was derived from the poster art for the film Paris, Texas, which inspired the band name.
