Can’t Stop Thinking Of You

Scroll down to content

Back in 1998, some twenty years ago, while Tina had just completed the marathonian Wildest Dreams Tour, fans thought she would take a long deserved break away from the spotlight but she surprised us all once again when she came back earlier than expected, singing and covering Eros Ramazzotti’s  ‘Cose Della Vita’ with the Italian crooner and adding another hit to her career.

This project was all Tina’s idea, she loved the original song and told her manager Roger Davies that she would like to get in touch with Ramazzotti. And through record company, contact was made, and the singers met in Italy. The chemistry between them was immediate, Tina admitting that she felt a ‘kind of a crush… as a fan!’ and thought the song would be perfect for a duet.

Not only this would turn out to be a fantastic idea, Tina would add even more of herself in the song,  penning the bittersweet English lyrics for the duet that would ultimately be issued under the title  ‘Cose Della Vita/Can’t Stop Thinking Of You’.

Recorded at Fonoprint Studio in Bologna, Italy, the song would hit the European charts in early 1998 becoming an instant hit everywhere around the old continent, supported by its video clip shoot in the wonderful village of Peille in France just a few minutes away from Anna Fleur. The song would also get a Spanish release with its own Spanish version that you can listen to below.

Tina promoted the song on a few European dates, joining Eros Live for a couple of nights in Germany and Italy. And as of today, the live performance of the duo that was captured in Munich in May 1998 is still ultra popular, soon reaching 25 Million views!

  3. There is also a more obscure version of this song in Portuguese, released on a Brazilian 2-CD version of the Eros album:

  4. Ramazotti is very bad singer and very overrated. In my opinion he sings like a frog, at karaoke are much more talented people than he is. I dont know why such talented women like Tina sang with him. He is too weak to made chorus for Tina.

  5. super Tina is simply the best
