  • Jennifer Harris from Grand Blanc, MiI didn't know this was about the death of a loved one.This was a hit when I was in middle school. 8th was even lip synched for lip sync week.I would love to get that cd of Sa-Fire.
  • Eugene from Minneapolis, MnI did not realise it was about the death of a loved one until now. When I first heard this on radio, I was surprised that she recorded a slow song and even used guitars in this ballad because she is a freestyle dance performer. This Spanish Harlem singer is known for huge dance club smash hits such as "Boy, I've Been Told", "Don't Break My Heart", and "Let Me Be The One" (not a remake of either Expose, Nu Shooz, or Five Star). "Thinking Of You" is also one of many ballads by frestyle superstars first big Pop hit. The others were Sweet Sensation's #1 smash "If Dreams Come True", Stevie B "Because I Love You" his only #1 Pop smash, and The Cover Girls "We Can't Go Wrong", their first Pop Top Ten.
