"Casanova" is the sixth single by Dutch girl group Luv', released in the spring of 1979 by Philips Records. This song appears on the formation's second album, Lots Of Luv', and was a Top 10 single in a large part of Continental Europe, maintaining Luv's position as the best Dutch export act of 1979.
After the success of the hit singles "U.O.Me", "You're the Greatest Lover" and "Trojan Horse" as well as the album With Luv' in 1978, Philips/Phonogram Records released the new single, "Casanova", and a new LP Lots Of Luv' in April 1979. Casanova's lyrics deal with an unfaithful man who can't help seducing women. The song's arrangements were inspired by Flamenco, Latin American music and 1970s Europop, making it a smash hit in Benelux, the German speaking countries and Denmark. A Spanish version was recorded but it failed to enter the music charts in the Spanish speaking territories.
