“Yesterday I saw the sun shinin’
and the leaves were fallin’ down softly
my cold hands needed a warm, warm touch
and I was thinkin’ about you.

Here I am lookin’ for signs of leaving
you hold my hand, but do you really need me?
I guess it’s time for me to let you go
and I’ve been thinkin’ about you
I’ve been thinkin’ about you.

When you sail across the ocean waters
and you reach the other side safely
could you smile a little smile for me?
‘Cause I’ll be thinkin’ about you
I’ll be thinkin’ about you
I’ll be thinkin’ about you
I’ll be thinkin’ about you”.

Traduzione.


“Ieri ho visto il sole che splendeva
e le foglie stavano cadendo dolcemente
le mie mani avevano bisogno
di un contatto caloroso
e stavo pensando a te

Eccomi qua alla ricerca
di segnali di partenza
tu tieni la mia mano
ma hai davvero bisogno di me?
Immagino che sia il momento
che io ti lasci andare
e sto pensando a te
sto pensando a te

Quando navighi sulle acque dell’oceano
e raggiungi l’altra sponda salvo
potresti farmi un piccolo sorriso?
Perché starò pensando a te
starò pensando a te
starò pensando a te
starò pensando a te”.

Citazioni.

Thinking About You is the first single from Norah Jones‘ third solo album, Not Too Late (2007). This is the first single to enter the Billboard 100 in 4 years, since “Don’t Know Why“. Jones wrote “Thinking About You” in 1999 with Ilhan Ersahin, her then-bandmate in Wax Poetic. She said the song had “always been in the back of my mind”, but she thought it was too much of a pop song for her and preferred if someone else were to record it. She recorded a version of it for her second album, Feels like Home (2004), but according to her it sounded “too country-rock”. According to the producer, she “found a way to make it work” during the recording of Not Too Late.
Stephen Thomas Erlewine from Allmusic picked the song, among the best tracks on the album, calling it a “wonderful laid-back soul”. Sia Michel from Entertainment Weekly called it a “safety-net single”, with its sexy, cocktail-party swing, the tune could be her first real radio hit since ‘Don’t Know Why‘.” Neil Spencer from The Observer commented that the song “looks like a conscious attempt not to scare the punters.” Tom Woods called it “a lovely pop song, with nostalgic lyrics.” Tyler Fisher from Sputnikmusic commented that the song is “a western jazz hybrid in the truest sense, with very country-styled melodies from the organ and Wurlitzer, but the jazzy horn section provides great countermelodies”.
Released in the United States on December 5, 2006 (see 2006 in music), “Thinking About You” was one of the first songs by a major artist to be available for paid digital download in mp3 format. The single entered the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 at number eighty-two in early February 2007, becoming Jones’s first chart entry since “Don’t Know Why” (2002). It was also her first single to appear on the Pop 100 chart. It peaked at number seventy in Germany.
The music video, directed by Ace Norton, was filmed on a soundstage at Steiner Studios in Brooklyn, New York with a cast of only eight people, including Jones. According to videostatic.com, it contains elements from some of Norton’s previous videos — for Peter Walker‘s “What Do I Know” (the “within the within” effect), Death Cab for Cutie‘s “Someday You Will Be Loved” (the animated heart) and Death Cab for Cutie‘s “Crooked Teeth” (the Claymation). The video premiered on December 19, 2006. Irma Thomas recorded the song for her 2008 album Simply Grand. Jones performed as a guest pianist on the recording”.
