Summer Wind" is a 1965 song, with music by Henry Mayer and lyrics by Johnny Mercer. A nostalgic tale of a fleeting romance, it is most known for a 1966 recording by Frank Sinatra which peaked at number 25 on the Billboard pop singles chart. Wayne Newton had the first national chart hit with the song in 1965, peaking at number 78.

The Sinatra version originally appeared on his Strangers in the Night album, and hit number one on Billboard magazine's Easy Listening survey. By the 2000s, it was one of Sinatra's most-used recordings in various contexts, including a mid-2000s television ad campaign for Mastercard and Major League Baseball.
