ong History

After the success of the hit singles ( U.O.Me, You're the Greatest Lover and Trojan Horse) and the album With Luv' in 1978, Philips Records/Phonogram Records released in the Spring of 1979 a new single (entitled Casanova) and a new LP Lots Of Luv'. Casanova's lyrics deal with an unfaithful man who can't help seducing women. The song's arrangements were inspired by Latin American music and 70's Europop making it a smash hit in Benelux, the German speaking countries and Denmark. A Spanish version was recorded but it failed to top the music charts of the Spanish speaking territories.

Cover version

In 1979, the German female singer Kirstin Lill recorded a Schlager version in German entitled Du bist ein Casanova.

Chart performance

Casanova was a Top 5 hit in Austria, in Denmark, in Switzerland and in Flanders (Belgium) and a Top 10 single in the Netherlands and Germany.
