"That's When I Think of You" is the debut single by Australian rock-pop band 1927. It was released in August 1988 and peaked at number six on the ARIA Singles Chart. On the 13 of May 1989 the song hit a high of 46 on the UK Official Charts. The single also charted for one week at #100 on the US Hot 100 in August.

The track won the award for 'breakthrough artist' at the ARIA Music Awards of 1989. The song was further nominated for 'single of the year' but lost to "Under the Milky Way" by The Church and 'producer of the year' but lost out to Age of Reason by John Farnham.[1]

Background[edit]

1927 formed in Melbourne in 1987 as a pop, rock band with James Barton on drums, Bill Frost on bass guitar, his brother Garry Frost (ex-Moving Pictures) on guitar and keyboards, and Eric Weideman on lead vocals and guitar.[2] After a year of vainly seeking a recording contract, 1927 were signed mid-1988 by WEA.
