Think Twice (song)

"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. The song is rock-influenced and features a guitar solo, one of Dion's only songs to do so.

"Think Twice" was a smash hit in Europe and Australia.

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 B-sides of this single were taken mainly from Dion chante Plamondon album, which was released at that time worldwide. It was also the first time that Dion's English single included French songs as B-sides all over the world.

Dion performed "Think Twice" at the 1995 World Music Awards.

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

"Think Twice" sold 1,234,982 copies in the UK and should be certified 2x platinum (for now it's undercertified and remains platinum only). It was also certified platinum in Australia (70,000) and gold in the Netherlands (50,000). According to Nielsen SoundScan the single sold 47,000 copies in the U.S.

"Think Twice" received an Ivor Novello Award for the Song of the Year in 1995.

The single boosted up The Colour of My Love album sales, which was released a year earlier and already fell off the charts. Thanks to its success the album went to number 1 in countries like: United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, Norway, Belgium and Greece.

It was included later on the European and Australian editions of the All the Way… A Decade of Song compilation (1999). Dion performed it lately during the 2008-09 Taking Chances Tour.

"Think Twice" was covered by Alana Dante in 1996, by Maribel Gonzalez (aka M:G) in 1999, and by Liel Koletin 2005. It was also performed by Kelly Clarkson on American Idol.
