"Deputy of Love" is a 1979 disco single by Don Armando.


The words and music were composed by Ron Rogers,[1] a songwriter from the South Bronx, who also played piano on the Ze Records recording. Rogers went on to write and produce several other dance records.[2] The song went to number one on the US disco chart, becoming the last single to hit the top spot during the 1970s,[3] but did not reach either the US Billboard Hot 100 or Billboard R&B chart. The vocalist on "Deputy of Love", Fonda Rae, was later successful on the dance and soul charts during the 1980s.
