Biography

Peter Sarstedt (born 12 December 1942, in Delhi, Northern India) is a singer-songwriter.

He is probably best known for his 1969, UK number one hit, “Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)” about a poor-born girl who becomes a member of the jet-set. The song was awarded the 1969 Ivor Novello Award, (together with David Bowie’s “Space Oddity”). Other Sarstedt songs include “Beirut”, “Take Off Your Clothes” and “Frozen Orange Juice” (UK #10 in 1969). In the 1980s & 90’s he frequently toured the UK as part of the “Solid Silver 60’s” package tours.

Most recently, his biggest hit “Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)” was featured in Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited and its prologue Hotel Chevalier.

Sarstedt also appears on Peter Thompson’s 2007 album “Taking a Dive (Heart First)” singing harmony on “Last Thing on My Mind” and “Don’t Think Twice (It’s All Right)”.

    Everything about this song is extremely beautiful. I love the lyrics, Peter Sarstedt's voice, music, subject... it just gives me this beautiful nostalgic feeling every time I listen to it. Definitely one of my top 10 favorites of all time.

    To be fair to Sarstedt, he'd never actually seen a "specially designed topless swimsuit" when he wrote this song. Ah hah ha ha.

    I've always loved this Where Do You Go To My Lovely song when it has been played on a radio but never knew who the guy was. Thanks to Darjeeling Limited, now I know!

    Peter Sarstedt — Sons Of Cain Are Abel: "As I was walking slowly through the lovely garden, And someone's sick homosexual half-world Twirled around in maybe love." I don't get the meaning, does it sound homophobic or what?
