She Thinks His Name Was John by Reba McEntire

Album: Read My MindReleased: 1994
  • Written by Sandy Knox and Steve Rosen, this song is about a young woman who contracts AIDS after a one-night stand. She "let a stranger kill her hopes and her dreams" and can barely remember his name. The beginning of the song made a point of how she was usually very cautious and got to know her sexual partners well, and that the one-night stand was out of character. (thanks, Lily - Argyle, TX)
  • Sandy Knox drew inspiration for this song from her brother, who died in 1984 after receiving a blood transfusion. Knox also co-wrote McEntire's duet with Linda Davis, "Does He Love You."
