"Think of Me" is a song by Australian pop duo The Veronicas, released as a single on 29 March 2019 through Sony Music Australia.[2] It is the duo's first single since the release of "The Only High" in June 2017.

Remixes were released on 14 June 2019.[3]

Background and composition[edit]

Mamamia wrote that the song is about the "aftermath of a toxic relationship, including the lines: 'I underestimated how complicated you are/I don't miss being hated.'"[4]

Musically, "Think of Me" is an electropop[1] song that has been described as a breakup anthem.[1][5] It contains "bittersweet" synths and lyrics that have been referred to as "brutally honest".[5] The chorus, which contains the lyrics "Do you miss me in your sheets?/ Do you miss me in your bed?/ The way we talk all night/ The way I give you head", has been called "raunchy".[1]

Critical reception[edit]

Allison Stubblebine, writing for Nylon, called the song the "perfect bittersweet ode to getting over a relationship; a little bit sad and nostalgic, but encouraging of owning your worth and moving on".[1] Mike Wass of Idolator labelled the song "easily the duo's most arresting single since "You Ruin Me", and deserves to find a lot of at home and abroad".[5]
