Neil Diamond told Q magazine July 2008 how this song fulfilled an ambition for him, writing a song with just one chord. He said: "I used every trick in the book to keep it interesting melodically, going to all these crazy, nutty places. Within the restrictions of writing with one chord, I found a freedom that I'd never found before."
"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.
