Eine Insel für zwei is the sixth German single recorded by U. S. entertainer Connie Francis.

The A-side featured a song written especially in German by Charly Niessen and Joachim Relin,[1] who would also write Wanda Jackson's chart-topping German language debut single "Santo Domingo" in 1965.[2]

The song on the B-Side was "Das ist zuviel", a German coverversion of Francis' U. S. Hit "Too Many Rules", which she also recorded in

  • French (as Faut pas faire, ça)
  • Italian (as Mary Lou, a. k. a. E' Mary Lou)
  • Japanese (as Too Many Rules [the original English title was kept])
  • Portuguese (as Ordens demais)
  • Spanish (as Tanto Control)

Eine Insel für zwei peaked at # 7 of the German charts.[3]
