"Cose della vita" (translated: Things in life) is a song originally released in 1993 by Eros Ramazzotti and included on his album Tutte storie. The single's highest chart placing was number 1 in Belgium, number 3 in Spain and number 4 in Italy. The original version also was a smash hit in Argentina, Chile, Mexico and Uruguay in the fall of 1996, gaining strong TV rotation. The music video for the song was directed by Spike Lee.

The song saw an international revival through a bilingual Italian-English version released in early 1998 as a duet with American singer Tina Turner. The additional English lyrics were by James Ralston and Tina Turner herself. The track was included in a later greatest hits compilation album by Ramazzotti titled Eros, released on 28 October 1997.

"Cosas de la vida"[edit]

As is traditional with many other successful releases of Ramazzotti songs, he released a Spanish language parallel release for Spain, Mexico, Latin America and USA Latin markets titled "Cosas de la vida". That version appears in the parallel Spanish-language version to the album Tutte storie, retitled Todo historias.

The track was re-recorded by Ramazzotti and Tina Turner in 1997 and re-released in January 1998 as a single from Ramazzotti's first greatest hits compilation album Eros. This time the song was bilingual and retitled "Cose della vita – Can't Stop Thinking of You". The additional English lyrics were by Turner herself and James Ralston. The re-release was accompanied by a music video shot in September 1997,[18] and directed by Nigel Dick.[19]

The duet version charted better, with a peak in the Netherlands and Germany at number 4.

Ramazzotti later re-recorded a Spanish-language version with Turner's English vocals called "Cosas de la Vida – Can't Stop Thinking of You", and a live version of the Italian-English version featuring Tina Turner was included on his album Live in 1998.

"Cose Della Vita – Can't Stop Thinking of You" has been included on Tina Turner's greatest hits albums All the Best (2004) and The Platinum Collection (2009).
