Una Notte E Forse Mai Più was the 4th single extracted from Eiffel 65's self-titled album, later in 2003.
The song was entirely composed by Maury and he shares his story of the song's creation:
"Una notte e forse mai più" is one of those songs that I wrote and composed in one night. I had two initial inputs in mind: the title and the melody of the piano intro that was inspired by a song by The Police (guess which one ;) ). I had never written lyrics in Italian before this album so it was like being at school: I studied languages, metrics, contents of all the Italian artists that I considered interesting.
I had decided that I wouldn’t write any traditional love song, I thought it was trivial and obvious. But then the title "una notte e forse mai più" made me think of one thing: they all wrote about the great love... the poetic, eternal one, but I didn’t remember a song dedicated to the smaller love... the passion, the one that may only last for a night but still be unforgettable.
The amazing thing about this song is that when it came out it was a "medium" success, not one of our greatest, but today in our live shows it's one of the best moments for the crowd. There are songs that need more time to really succeed. "
Note that these statements were obtained exclusively for the 10th anniversary of Eiffel 65's third album, so stay tuned for more interesting facts and stories!
