This song was originally written by singer-songwriter Dilana about how her live changed after she was the runner-up contestant on the CBS reality television show Rock Star: Supernova. She released it as a digital only single in 2007 and it also appears on her 2009 album, Inside Out.
Iraheta spoke to Yahoo! Music about covering the track: "I was a big fan of Dilana's... I never watched the show, but I checked it out online once and I was like 'Homegirl can sang!' Kinda crazy, I didn't know she was going to release that in her album. I mean, I would have never covered it if I knew she as going to release it cause it's all her, but I think it definitely has room for both of us because we each bring something different to the table. dear God, her voice is ridiculous; I love it... I wish I could talk to her and be like, 'Thanks for making such a dope-ass song! Wow. It's cool.'"
Bruce Springsteen wrote "Blinded By The Light," which was a #1 hit for Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The "Madman Drummers" line is a reference to Springsteen's first E-Street drummer, Vinnie "Mad dog" Lopez.
"Thinking About You" was the ninth track from Calvin Harris' 18 Months album to enter the UK singles Top 10. No other artist has obtained so many hits from one LP - Michael Jackson was the previous record holder with seven Top 10 tunes from both his Bad and Dangerous sets.
