Janet Jackson "When I Think Of You" Single (1986)
Details: Used 7" for Janet Jackson's hit, "When I Think Of You," on A&M Records in 1986. I can't think of that song now without singing the extra lyrics (whispered), "When I think of you..." Solid track from Janet from her third album, "Control."
Description: "When I Think of You" is a song by American singer Janet Jackson from her third studio album, Control (1986). It was released on July 28, 1986, as the album's third single. Written by Jackson, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and produced by Jam and Lewis, the song is about a person who finds relief and fun in a lover. It was Jackson's first number-one single on the US Billboard Hot 100 and also peaked at number 10 in the United Kingdom.

The song was resurrected in 1995 when released on two limited-edition CD single formats in the United Kingdom, one containing remixes by Deep Dish and Heller & Farley, and the other containing remixes by David Morales. That same year these remixes were included on certain releases of "Runaway".
