Peter Sarstedt – Where Do You Go To My Lovely

Caught this on TOTP last night. What a barnet! What a ‘tache! What a voice! What’s not to like? Plenty, some might say … but more fool them.

The chord sequence, incidentally, is very reminiscent of the Beatles’ ‘You’ve Got to Hide your Love Away”, is it not?

    one of those that haunts you from first listen, something very ‘other’ about it. ‘Well Ive seen all of your qualifications……your loveliness goes on and on………your cleverly designed topless swimsuit….’ So many namechecks, Marlene Dietrich, Rolling Stones, Sacha Distel, the Sorbonne, Juan les Pins, etc etc, sounds enchantingly exotic. A shame it ends with him claiming he can actually look inside her head though, female mystery gives way to masculine pride in the end…………
