Back in 1998, some twenty-five years ago, while Tina had just completed the gigantic 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 the 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, but Tina would also add even more of herself to 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 in 1997, the song would hit the European charts in early 1998 becoming an instant hit everywhere around the old continent, supported by its video clip shot in the wonderful village of Peille in France just a few minutes away from Anna Fleur.

The song would also get a Spanish release while a live version was issued on Eros’s album ‘Live’.

You can listen to both of these versions below and watch a special report from Dutch TV documenting the recording of the song in Italy. Enjoy!
