"Thinking of You" is a popular song, written by Harry Ruby and Bert Kalmar. It was introduced in the Broadway show, The Five O'Clock Girl (1927). The song had two special periods of popularity: 1928 and 1950, the latter in relation to the release of the MGM film, Three Little Words, based on the life of Kalmar and Ruby. Hit versions of the song were recorded by Eddie Fisher and Don Cherry.

The recording by Don Cherry was released by Decca Records as catalog number 27128. It first reached the Billboard Best Seller chart on September 15, 1950, and lasted 21 weeks on the chart, peaking at number four. [1]

The recording by Eddie Fisher was released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 20-3901 (78 r.p.m.) and 47-3901 (45 r.p.m). It first reached the Billboard Best Seller chart on October 6, 1950, and lasted 18 weeks on the chart, peaking at number eight. This was Fisher's first charting hit.
