We study the collective excitations of a system with local attractive interactions as a function of the coupling strength. The two-particle excitations are obtained in the random-phase approximation. For the strong-coupling limit we reproduce the excitation spectrum of a hard-core Bose gas, while in the weak-coupling limit we obtained a spectrum consistent with the BCS picture. The evolution of the excitation spectrum from the weak- to the strong-coupling limits is continuous. We briefly discuss the effect of these excitations in the thermodynamic properties of the system.
