Cose Della Vita was written by Eros Ramazzotti and originally a single in 1993. Eros re-recorded the track together with Tina Turner in 1997 for his greatest hits compilation Eros with his part in Italian, Spanish and Portuguese and Tina’s self-written part in English. Both performed the song live at the Eros & Friends Tour, where Tina was a guest vocalist at some concerts.
The music video was directed by Nigel Dick and filmed in a small village near Tina’s home in the South of France. It shows Eros driving with a car to the village and Tina walking through the alleys. They meet each other on a big place and finish the song together. The clip is available as a bonus on the All The Best home video.
Released in January 1998 from BMG Records on 5“ CD, Cose Della Vita reached #4 in Germany, #6 in Europe and #18 (Latin) in America. It was also a #9 airplay hit in Europe.

If you haven’t joined the millions of people around the world who happily feast on the suave Italo-belting of Ramazzotti, then you need to catch up. This rock-edged pop chugger from his self-titled album is a good place to start. It shows him at his most magnetic, darting around the track’s crisp rhythms and limber electric guitar riffs. The Italian-language tune has been translated into English, allowing special guest Turner to wail and vamp admirably. Her voice meshes perfectly with Ramazzotti’s when they harmonize in English — leaving the listener wondering how long it will be before this international star will cut an album specifically for the American market.
