Behind the Scenes with Thompson Square Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About


Check out a behind the scenes look at Thompson Square's "Everything I Shouldn't Be Thinking About" from their 2013 album, Just Feels Good.

Thompson Square Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About is the first track off of their second album, Just Feels Good.  The album was released in February 2013 with the video to follow just a few months later.  Go behind the scenes with Thompson Square and take a look at the making of the catchy tune.


The song is about being in a relationship and thinking about certain things more than others.  Things like everyday chores, cleaning the house or doing yard work, get pushed to the side to make way for thoughts about a significant other.  This is normal for relationships, but it also distracts from tasks, which is why the couple “shouldn’t be thinking about” those things.  But it makes for a catchy and relatable song!

Kiefer Thompson was the mastermind behind the lyrics of the song.  He actually came up with the song’s main idea with some friends while Shawna was in the kitchen cooking.  By the time she returned, the song was finished.  The man’s point of view comes first, which was quite easy to write with a group of guys sitting together thinking about girls.  Kiefer also wrote the woman’s part, guessing that women had similar thoughts sometimes.  He was right.

The song became a hit and introduces Thompson Square’s second album, Just Feels Good, as the first track.  A few months later, Thompson Square released the music video and dressed up as a couple from the 1960s.  They reenact the story told in the song, “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About.”  Check out the video here:

The Thompson Square duo seems to have a relationship like the movies, and “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About” illustrates a relatable love story.  Kiefer and Shawna Thompson set an example for a strong relationship while showing that they can have fun with each other.  The music video shows their ability to let loose and enjoy each other’s presence, sometimes giving in to those distracting thoughts.
