"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 of the song was recorded by Europop group No Mercy, taken from their debut album My Promise. On May 13, 1996,[1] it was released as their first single and became a worldwide hit entering the Top-5 not only in Germany where the trio was based, but also in Australia, Austria, France, Switzerland, U.K. and U.S.[2][3][4]

Content[edit]

"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. The chorus hook "where do you go, my lovely?" references Peter Sarstedt's 1969 hit "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)".
