"Where Do You Go" is a song written by Peter Bischof and Franz Reuther. It was first recorded by Eurodance band La Bouche in 1995 as an album-only song from their Sweet Dreams album. A cover version by Europop group No Mercy, taken from their eponymous debut album in June 1996, was released as their first single and became a hit in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland and various other countries.

The song was released in the United States in 1996, becoming a top ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 5. UK and Ireland saw a release in January 1997, where it spent 15 weeks on the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number 2, while reaching the top position in Ireland.


Where do You Go is a dance track with a 4/4 rhythm structure, running at a speed of 127 beats per minute. It is built around a drum beat that was sampled from the Todd Terry remix of the song "Missing", by English act Everything But The Girl.
