Song Info:

"Think Twice" was a 1961 single by Brook Benton. It hit #11 on the pop charts.

"Think Twice" is the fourth hit single from The Colour of My Love album by Céline Dion. It was released on July 18, 1994 in North America, in October 1994 in the United Kingdom, Australia and Japan, and February 1995 in the rest of the world.[1] The song is rock-influenced and features a guitar solo, one of only a few of Dion's songs to do so, performed by Aldo Nova. The song was written by British songwriters Andy Hill, who had achieved success a decade earlier for his work with Bucks Fizz and Peter Sinfield, a former member of rock group King Crimson.

"Think Twice" became a hit in Europe and Australia, particularly in the UK where it became one of the biggest selling singles of all time.[2]

Two versions of the music video exist: the first was released in August 1994; later because of the huge success in the UK, Céline Dion made a special music video in December 1994. It aired in the UK Top of the Pops television programme.

The song went to number 1 all over Europe, including: Ireland (9 weeks at the top), United Kingdom (7 weeks), Belgium Flanders (5 weeks), Netherlands (4 weeks), Norway (4 weeks), Sweden (4 weeks) and Denmark (2 weeks).[3] It was also very successful in Australia reaching number 2.
