Where do you go to my lovely

I always like songs that have a story behind them. Maybe it goes back to the traditional Irish storytelling thing. Or maybe they are just nice. Here is one of my favourites. Where Do You Go To My Lovely by Peter Sarstedt

There are many theories about who the song is about, Sophie Loren being one person mentioned. But I prefer not to know and like to see this women in the jet set that talks like Marlene Dietrich And you dances like Zizi Jeanmaire, with clothes made by Balmain and diamonds and pearls in her hair. But even though she came from the back streets of Naples is not happy with all this. Beautiful

A DJ friend of mine had a great compilation album, called Every Song Tells a Story. It had some great songs including Romeo & Juliet by Dire Straits.
Just found it online, here's a link:

Yes it so must nicer when there's a story behind it rather than just a bunch of word jumble together that rhymes.
