This country-tinged song finds Alex Turner opening his heart and lungs to his girlfriend Taylor Bagley, who was born in Tennessee. The Arctic Monkeys frontman told Zayn Lowe on his Beats 1 show: "I was reaching something vocally that I hadn't done before."
Darling I can't seem to quit Completely falling to bits I really might be losing it The idea that you've existed all along's ridiculous I don't know what to say
The words for this song are clear cut, unlike the other tracks on the lyrically abstract Everything You've Come To Expect. "That tune actually is perhaps the only one where I sat down and it is just what it is," Alex Turner told Q magazine. "That's straightforward that."
The song has a Roy Orbison vibe. This can be explained by the fact that it originated when Turner started playing an old Big O riff, "on an acoustic one afternoon, longing for someone."
"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.
