Thinking of You Sister Sledge Song

"Thinking of You" is a song released as a single by Sister Sledge in 1984 that became a hit in the UK. It was originally recorded for their album, We Are Family (1979), and was included as the B-side to their UK top 20 single "Lost In Music". "Thinking of You" was written and produced by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards, and, like many Sister Sledge hits, was built on the rhythmic foundations of their famous guitar and bass line arrangements.

Chart performance

By 1984, the group's chart fortunes had almost completely died out, with their 1983 album Bet Cha Say That to All the Girls failing to chart in any of the major territories. The belated issue of "Thinking of You" peaked at #11 on the UK Singles Chart[1] and #20 in Ireland,[2] reviving interest in the group in both countries, paving the way for the #1 hit, "Frankie". "Thinking of You" was remixed in 1993 after the success of the "We Are Family" remix, reaching #17 in the UK,[1] #21 in Ireland,[2] and #88 in Australia in 1994.[3]
