    L'Amore Verra

    I was wondering, what is the story behind the Italian release of Can't Hurry Love? Besides Diana, who is singing on this track? Did they hire someone to teach the girls Italian?
    I also heard there is a german version of another Supremes song.

    I can find nothing about this song, and I'd love to learn anything there is about it.

    Of course it wasn't necessary for singers to actually learn new languages for international releases. Connie Francis was one of the first to do this and she explained that the foreign lyrics were written out phonetically for her, rather than in the actual language, and weren't even approximations of the English lyrics. She said she usually had no idea what she was singing.

    i'm pretty sure it's Mary and Flo in the background. they would just learn the lyrics phonetically. Sometimes with more success than others lol

    On YouTube, there used to be a nice clip of DMC lipsyncing this song on Italian tv. For some reason, each woman was wearing only one earring. I haven't been able to find it for a while.

    Thank you so much! So it's almost certainly D/F/M singing Amore Verra?

    I really like listening to it and reading the translating lyrics, I actually think it's helping me with my italian in a huge way
