While the concept of the chorus line "Cause when I'm with him, I am thinking of you" has been used hundreds of times before, in no way should one assume this song has nothing new to offer. If anything, it proves Katy Perry doesn't always require a 'gimmick', and a song doesn't always have to be danceable for her to impress.

On the rock ballad "Thinking Of You", Katy sets aside the drum machines and synthesizers in favor of real guitars and drums. With lyrics like "You're like an Indian summer in the middle of winter...like a hard candy with a surprise center", she shows her depth as a songwriter. But most impressive is the showcasing of her incredible vocal talent...something kept hidden on her previous singles. From soft and sensual with a beautiful falsetto, to strong and pure, and everything in between, this girl's got it. At times her tone and delivery are reminiscent of Alanis Morissette, but I'm sure Katy wouldn't mind being compared to her. Katy delivers a truly moving performance here...A+

Let me start off by saying that this song is awesome. The lyrics aren't superb but they do the job. And to Katy's credit she wrote the song on her own.

The song talks about a lover who has come to pass and how even though Katy's with some other guy, all she does is think of the better dude (her first love).

This is a ballad of sorts, and a good one at that. In the video, Katy goes from the "summer girl" having fun, to the lover in the room being caressed by her current flame and finally to the "widow" at the end, with the slick, laced up heels.

Her best song so far for a mile.

Now if only Katy Perry would take some serious voice lessons because her voice is too raw. That's my only complaint about this otherwise stunning song.

4 stars.

I love this song, and amazon makes it totally worth it because unlike stupid iTunes, you can keep downloading it to a new phone, or redownload it if your internet dies or something in the middle of the download, all for free.
See iTunes, if u loose internet connection in the middle of the download, or your power goes out, or you get a new computer you have to buy the song all over again, trust me, I experienced that huge problem with iTunes MORE THAN ONCE.
Where as Amazon is awesome cause it's all on your account, so you just log in and it's there, and it shows that you paid the $1 for it so it's yours. Even if you get a new phone, or iPod, or loose internet connection during your down load or the power goes out or whatever... your logged it, it's your account you paid for it, its all legal , and it's yours, for like EVER. :D And (like I said above) if you loose internet connection or the power goes out during your download, you can retry the download unlike iTunes :D
In my own PERSONAL opinion I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMEND you download songs, and buy songs from Amazon.com verses buying it on iTunes. c:

This had potential to be Katy Perry's signature ballad, but in this day and age there just doesn't seem to be much of a market for romance. It's in the same vein as Madonna's "Crazy for You" or Avril Lavigne's "I'm With You;" a ballad you can easily envision young girls singing at the top of their lungs, into their hairbrushes in front of their vanities.

Although the sentiment of it is a bit juvenile, the melody and production are straightforward and tender and Perry gives a strong, albeit not immediately accessible, vocal performance. The accompanying videos (yes, there are two) also help illustrate the two different interpretations of the lyrics that most people seem to have; whether Perry is singing from the perspective of a jilted lover or of an adulteress racked with guilt. It's touching and well-composed. This song is a gem.

One of my favorites by Katy! This song is just great sometimes we've been in that situation also when we are with somebody but we're still thinking about our ex for some reason.

I used to be a big fan of Katy Perry but now I feel like all of her songs sound the same. This one though, is one of my more preferable songs. Worth the listen if you ask me.

There honestly sometimes are artist who might have potential, but others who just haven't made any good songs ata all. For Katy Perry, whom last year was really a bit overdubbed as the I Kissed A Girl vixen, has yet to really make the soul shine as her own. For her latest single, Thinking Of You, the third single from her debut album One Of The Boys, shows that she is trying to grow up quickly from being a wannabe artist, to a rock diva. Sadly, I didn't feel the chemistry here either matched for her either. She might have the appeal, but for Katy Perry herself, she needs to find much better songs to think of. Thinking Of You just wasn't at all a thought in the dark.

Song: D
