Jennifur Sun from RamonaI saw a comment on Youtube last year that this song was about someone who lost an amp or something like that out of a plane. never could get the person to comment back to hear the whole story. It has become my very FAV CCR tune they ever recorded.
Brian from Los Angeles, Ca"Walter and Eric said they'd put him on in their TV show." Refers to legendary newsmen of the time Walter Cronkite and Eric Sevareid. If you've not heard of them, it's because you watch TMZ.
Jason from Thousand Oaks, CaThere's a reference in the song to Nixon VP Spiro T. Agnew, "Spiro came and made a speach about raising the Mars tax". Nixon appointed Agnew head of the National Aeronautics and Space Council. After Agnew publicly advocated a space shot to Mars, it was explained to him that there was no money for a project of that magnitude. There's also a reference to Ronald Reagan, "Ronnie the popular say's it was a communist plot". Reagan was the Governer of California at the time, and his transition from acting to politics is where the "popular" sentiment comes from.
In The Beatles "When I'm 64," Paul McCartney asks a woman if she'll still be there for him when he's 64. In 2006, he got his answer when shortly before his 64th birthday, he and Heather Mills separated.
"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.
