"Thinking of You" is a single released by Sister Sledge in 1984 that became a hit single in the UK. It was originally recorded for their 1979 album, We Are Family.

By this time, the group's chart fortunes in the US had almost completely died out, with this song missing both the Hot 100 and the R&B charts. It was a different story across the Atlantic, however, where this song peaked at #11 on the UK Singles Chart, continuing the group's success there which culminated in the #1 hit, "Frankie". This song was re-mixed in 1993 after the success of the "We Are Family" remix, but only reached #17 in the UK.

Paul Weller covers this song on his 2004 album, Studio 150. This version made #18 in the UK. This version later appeared on the 2005 compilation album, Acoustic 05 (Echo).

Thinking of You was written and produced by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards and like many of their hits was built on the rhythmic foundations of their famous guitar and bass line arrangements.
