Paul Weller ruminates on the need for some self-control on this playful klezmer. He explained to Mojo magazine he penned the song after a row with his wife, Hannah.
"For me it was a little bit tongue-in, he said, "but I wrote it after I'd been heavily rucking with my missus and I just thought, this is what we need. A little bit of self-control, a step back. Equanimity."
The Beatles-esque klezmer is, according to Weller, a "bit of everything: a bit of Pepper; a bit of '30s Berlin; a bit of Mills Brothers harmonies."
That's Jim Lea playing the mournful violin solo. Best known as multi-instrumentalist and co-writer for Slade, Lea's most notable violin contribution was on their 1971 hit "Coz I Love You."
"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.
