Eartha kitt – Where Is My Man (US 12″)

A. Front


“Where Is My Man” is the title of a song from 1983 by the American singer and actress Eartha Kitt, which appeared on her 1984 album I Love Men The song was co-written by comedy writer Bruce Vilanch along with musicians and producers Fred Zarr and Jacques Morali.

The song was first released in France as a single where it was wildly successful. The song features Kitt singing in a low, seductive-sounding voice. Included in the song are some sounds that have come to be associated with Kitt, including a purring sound similar to one she made while portraying Catwoman on the 1960s TV series Batman. The lyrics to the song detail specific things the singer expects to receive from her future lover, such as a trip to Saint-Tropez and shopping at Tiffany’s.

The title failed to find release in the United States until the producers’ attorneys (the firm of Grubman, Indursky, Shindler) introduced the title to their client, New York based Streetwise Records. Streetwise Records released the title in late 1983 in the United States to the dance and club markets. It was Kitt’s first recording released in the United States after her ostracism and self-imposed exile to Paris following her outspoken objection to the Vietnam War at a White House function in 1968, and it became her biggest-selling single in 30 years.

In the United Kingdom, “Where Is My Man” reached the Top 40 on the UK Singles Chart, where it peaked at #36. This was her first UK Hit single in 28 years, the previous chart entry, “Under The Bridges of Paris” dating from 1955. The single was also a hit in dance clubs around the world peaking at #5 in Sweden and #22 in Netherlands. In the US, the song made the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart, peaking at #7 and remaining on the survey for 14 weeks.

    Not sure if that qualifies as Disco maybe Hi-NRG. I’ll consider it for you though 🙂


  2. Jermajesty Says:

    Could that be a new theme? Hi-NRG Thursday, as a prelude to Disco Friday. 😀 😀

    Thanks for this Paul! It was a big hit in South Africa both on the single sales chart where it reached no.6 and i’m sure for more than 20 weeks in total on the Top 30 chart. It was also featured on the high selling Hi NRG Double Dance vol.1 compilation. As far as i know it was her only charting single in SA.

    Thanks for Where’s My Man!I bought a brand new copy of the US 12″ (still sealed) a few months back.

    Cheers Sergio. Thank you appreciate you 🙂


  7. Jonathan Says:

    I saw her live in London in the late 80s and I’m pretty sure she sang this. I have the second UK 12″, with the Hot Tracks megamix. It’s over 10 minutes long, so it does go on a bit.


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Hi Jonathan yeah the Hot tracks mix is a bit looong lol.


    Spinsah Reply:

    Yeah it’s a great mix but the sound quality is abysmal!! I’m hoping to re-create it now that I have both the vocal and instrumental passages in top quality to do it with (Thanks Paul! Just discovered your blog very recently and I’m in heaven!! :))

    “I want a billionaire with a big… big… big… big…

  10. Disco-D Says:

    Thanks, Paul. I hope you will also do the original 12″ mixes too, please?


  11. Disco-D Says:

    Actually, on closer inspection… What you have uploaded IS the original 12″.
    The remix 12″ by Steve Thompson is slightly shorter, as is his instrumental too…
    I’d love to hear that 🙂
