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

The track re-recorded by Ramazzotti and Tina Turner in 1997 for the greatest hits compilation Eros. This time the song was bilingual with Turner's English lyrics written by Turner herself, then retitled "Cose Della Vita – Can't Stop Thinking of You". 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).
