1997 - Cose della vita CD Single - CD Maxi Single

"Cose Della Vita" is a single from Eros Ramazotti’s compilation album "Eros".
The song is a re-recorded version of Ramazotti. He released the song itself in 1993 and it was included on his album "Tutte Storie". Eros wrote the song himself together with some co-writers.

Tina invited Eros to an anniversary party. Tina was already a fan of Eros and was so happy that he accepted her invitation. She played her favourite Eros song "Cose Della Vita" and added some English lyrics to it. Eros was excited and asked if Tina would do a duet with him. Eros invited Tina and in late 1997 they recorded their version of "Cose Della Vita – Can’t Stop Thinking Of You".



Eros and Tina shot a video for "Cose Della Vita". It was shot in the South of France and both were wearing a stunning black outfit. Eros also invited Tina to his live concert in Münich 1998 where they did the song live together.



Their duet version of "Cose Della Vita" was released in early 1998 and was a huge hit over Europe. With almost 6.000.000 copies sold, the single was a better success for Eros than his solo version. Eros also released a Spanish version of the song and added Tina’s English vocals to it. The single was released in 3 formats. 7" single (very rare), cd single and cd maxi single. The song was later included on Tina’s official compilation cd’s "All The Best" (2004) and "The Platinum Collection" (2009).
Tina only appeared on "Cose Della Vita". Tina and Eros were magic together and the song will be timeless forever.
The B-Side is "Taxi Story" by Eros Ramazzotti alone.



"Cose Della Vita"
Cose della vita

Single: Cose della vita - 1997

Sono umane situazioni
Quei momenti fra di noi
I distacchi ed i ritorni
Da capirci niente poi
Gia come vedi
Sto pensando a te...si...da un po'

They're just human contradictions
Feeling happy feeling sad
These emotional transitions
All the memories we've had
Yes, you know it's true
I just can't stop thinking of you

No I just can't pretend
All the time we spent could die
Wanna feel it again
All the love we felt then

Confinanti di cuore solo che ognuno sta
Dietro gli steccati degli orgogli suoi
Sto pensando a te
Sto pensando a noi

Sono cose della vita
Vanno prese un po' cosi
Some for worse and some for better
But through it all we've come so far
Gia...come vedi
Io sto ancora in piedi perche

Sono umani tutti i sogni miei
Con le mani io li prenderei, si perch¨
What's life without a dream to hold?
Take my hand and never let me go

It's part of life together
But what future does it hold?
Sono cose della vita
Ma la vita poi dov'e

Yes, you know it's true
I just can't stop thinking of you
Questa notte che passa piano accanto a me
Cerco di affrontarla, afferrarla
If our hearts miss a beat
Or get lost like a ship at sea
I wanna remember, I can never forget

Can't stop thinking of you
Sto pensando a noi
Can't stop thinking of you
Can't stop
