Peter Eardley Sarstedt (10 December 1941 – 8 January 2017), briefly billed early in his career as Peter Lincoln, was an English singer-songwriter, instrumentalist and activist.

He recorded a number of successful albums and singles, beginning in the 1960s. Although his music was classified as pop, it generally encompassed ballads derived from traditional folk music rather than rock and roll. He was best known for writing and performing the single "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?", which topped the UK Singles Chart in 1969 and won an Ivor Novello Award.

Peter Sarstedt - Where Do You Go To My Lovely (1969)




Early life

Sarstedt, was born in Delhi, India, in what was then part of the British Raj, in 1941, where his parents, both themselves classically trained musicians, were civil servants in the British administration. He attended Victoria Boys' School in Kurseong, in the Darjeeling district of West Bengal, where his parents administered a large tea plantation. His family returned to the UK in 1954, settling in south London just before the rock 'n' roll boom, and the Sarstedt brothers started out performing skiffle music.

Sarstedt was a younger brother of the 1960s pop star Eden Kane, for whom he briefly played bass, and an elder brother of pop singer Clive Sarstedt.


Sarstedt was best known for his 1969 UK number-one single "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?", a portrait of a poor-born girl who becomes a member of the European jet-set. The song topped the chart in 14 countries. It was also awarded the 1970 Ivor Novello Award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically. Other Sarstedt songs include "Beirut", "Take Off Your Clothes", "I Am a Cathedral" and "Frozen Orange Juice" (UK No. 10 in 1969).

In the 1980s and 1990s, Sarstedt frequently toured the southern UK as part of the "Solid Silver '60s" package tours, having returned to England after several years residing in Denmark. In the 1990s and 2000s, he continued to release new albums and tour. In 1997 he released the album England's Lane and in 2002 an album of new material called On Song. He sang harmonies on "Don't Think Twice" and "Last Thing on My Mind" on Canadian singer Peter Thompson's 2007 album, Taking a Dive (Heart First).

New interest was sparked in his music after "Where Do You Go To" was used in the 2007 Wes Anderson films Hotel Chevalier and The Darjeeling Limited. In 2012, a compilation of songs called Highlights – the Demos was released.

Sarstedt's final album, released in 2013, was entitled Restless Heart. It was produced by Ray Singer and the single and accompanying video clip "Valentine" was released on Singer Records and distributed by Proper/Finetunes. Sarstedt last toured in 2010.

Personal life

Sarstedt was married to Jill Wall, and from 2013 he lived in a retirement home in Sussex, England. He suffered from progressive supranuclear palsy, (PSP), diagnosed in 2015, originally diagnosed as dementia in 2013.

He died on 8 January 2017 at the age of 75.
