Love In Rewind is recorded in English with a few backing parts sung in Bosnian.
The song was also to be recorded in Bosnian (as Sito), French and German. There was a competition on Dino Merlins website to write German and French versions of Love In Rewind. It seems the idea has not materialized into new versions on the available material.
