Cose Della Vita (1997)

Tina Turner & Eros Ramazzotti - Cose Della Vita - Single

Cose Della Vita (Can’t Stop Thinking Of You) was originally released from Eros Ramazzotti as a single in 1993. For his greatest hits compilation Eros in 1997, he re-recorded the track together with Tina Turner at Fonoprint Studio in Bologna, Italy in 1997 with his part in Italian, Spanish and Portuguese and Tina’s self-written part in English. Because the single was a huge success in Europe, Tina was also a guest vocalist at some concerts of the Eros & Friends Tour, where they performed the song together. A live version was released on the album Eros Live in 1998.

The music video was filmed in the wonderful village of Peille in the south of France, just a few minutes away from Tina’s then home Anna Fleur. It shows Eros driving with a car to the village and Tina walking through the alleys. Later they meet each other on a big place and finish the song together. The clip was first released in 2004 on the All The Best live collection as a bonus.

Tina Turner & Eros Ramazzotti - Cose Della Vita - Music Video

Billboard - January 31, 1998

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.
