Back in the summer of 1994, I was dating this nice girl who lived over in Kentucky. I don’t even remember which part of Kentucky as we didn’t date all that long.
She was a Country & Western music fan which was OK with me until this song came out.
“Thinkin’ Problem” was recorded by David Ball and this woman I was seeing went nuts over it. She would play it over and over again when I was visiting and would play it in the car too. When she couldn’t hear Ball sing it, she would sing it herself—all off key, of course.
I hate to say it, but it’s one of the reasons I broke up with her. She and “Thinkin’ Problem” were just too much.
I started thinking of that song the other day and wondered if it and David Ball was still around. The video at the top of this post confirms it as Ball singing the song was shot in Nashville last year.
Now that I know “Thinkin’ Problem” is still around, I need to find out what happened to my old girlfriend.
