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 1979 album, We Are Family and was included as the B-side to their UK top 20 single "Lost In Music".
By this time, 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 and #20 in Ireland, 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.
After finishing its fourth and final season in late May 2014, the show's creator Rachel MorCox decided to get the Babysitter cast back together for the final time to record a cover of the song. The cast came back together on June 12, 2014 to take part in a photo shoot for the single cover. The cast then returned on June 14 to record the song and shoot the music video for the single.
Background and Release
Sister Sledge's hit song We Are Family was already covered by the cast in 2011 when the cast recorded it for the theme song of the show. It was then decided that the cast would come back after the show finished filming to cover another song of the popular 70s group. Thinking of You made the final cut and was decided to be covered by the cast. The song was recorded and produced as a present for the Babysitter fans as a "thank you" for giving them the love and support through out the past few years.
The music video was released on July 28, 2014. It featured the cast in the recording studio recording the song, goofing around and extra behind the scenes of the previous music videos for Jumpstart and We Are Family, the photo shoot and recording We Are Family in the studio in 2011.
