Demi has been estranged from her natural father Patrick Lovato for a long time. After the Disney star checked into rehab for treatment in the fall of 2010, Patrick went to the press blaming Hollywood pressures for his daughter's "emotional and physical issues." In doing so he created further issues between the pair, and this vulnerable, angry song finds her taking aim at her long-distant dad. She wails: "Lie to your flesh and blood/Put your hands on the ones that you swore you loved/So young when the pain had begun/Now forever afraid of being loved."
The song was written by Demi with William Beckett of the alternative rock band The Academy Is… and produced by Toby Gad (Beyoncé's "If I Were a Boy").
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.
