[BCH] Where is my man?

«Where Is My Man» is a song by the American singer and actress Eartha Kitt, which appeared on her 1984 album I Love Men. 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.

  1. In the song «Where is my man?» Eartha Kitt sings that she needs a man to pay her everything, to invite her to a holidays in the Hamptons, Capri, Malibu … anyway, what she wants is a «sugar dady» to have what she wants and to pay her all the other person. While in the song «You don’t owe me» by Lesly Gore the lyrics of the song say that she doesn’t want any «sugar dady» who doesn’t need anyone to support her and therefore no one has to continue exhibiting her as if she were an object.
    From my point of view we should think like Lesly Gore and not allow anyone to show us as an object, since we can sustain ourselves without needing a man who has to buy everything from us.

  2. In the song «Where is my man?», the singer Eartha Kitt says she needs a man because she don,t want to be along. She is desesperate to find a boyfriend, she says she spends hours by the phone or chews her fingers to the bone, waiting for her man. By comparison, singer Grace is free than Eartha Kitt. Grace says in her song that she hasn,t owner, that they don,t have to tell her what to do or say. In my opinion, Singer Eartha Kitt isn,t right. No one has to depend on anyone.

  3. This song suggests to me an idea of desperation and it seems the end of a relationship. I think that the singer feels lonely and sad because probably she has suffered a lot for love and she’s looking for a man who treats her well and who can live new experiences with him. I agree with what the singer says because I believe that in a relationship you must to be with someone that treat you better than the rest of the people in your life and meet new things to improve with yourself.

  4. I think that this song is very suggestive, the singer expresses her needs about a man. She says that she wants a rich man who gives her “things that aren’t free”. At the end of the song the lyrics say that she has tried with other men but they always bring her a brass ring and she wants a gold one.
    I think that the song is a little bit antiquated because you don’t need a man to be rich or to have expensive things. But anyway the song is according to her time, because in the ’80s society had that thought. In my opinion a song more according to now is You don’t own me because it talks about freedom and independence.
    In conclusion both songs are good but one of them is more antiquated than the other, even though they’re from similar times.

  5. The lyric of the song is about a woman that is looking for a boyfriend.
    I don´t really like this song because in my opinion it´s a bit old, the video is not as good as nowadays videos because of the quality and the effects.
    The lyrics of the song are very repetitive and it doesn´t make sense for me.
    Also it´s not the kind of music that I usually listen to, and I would never listen to it again.
    I prefer the other song called “You don´t owe me”, because it is a remix and combines and old song with a rap. I love the rhythm of the song and nowadays this song is a trend

  6. To begin with, we can see that what the song suggests is a woman´s need to have a man in her life to get all the whims that man can buy her.In the song we can hear phrases like:«send his car tothi address´´,«buy the things that I so richly desenre´´.
    Here is where we can compare this song to the famous movie,Pretty Woman,where Edward Lewis uses Vivian Ward as an display gem as a woman.

    In this aspect I don’t agree with what Eartha says in her song.If women want a feminist society,it implies that women have to pay our own whims,however, we have been fighting to be able to work today.

    In my opinion,this is basically what Lesley Gore says in her song, You don’t own me.Eartha Kitt shows in her song she needs to look for a man in her life and tell us that she doesn’t mind be a exhibition gem for a man.But according to Leslie,she doesn’t need a man and she doesn’t want to be an display gem,we can see this in some phrases of her song like:«don´t put me on display´´,«don’t tie me down cause I’d never stay’’.Basically everything she wants to be is free.

  7. this song talks about the dependency that the singer feels towards a man.

    In my opinion, no woman or man should put their life on someone else. really, the singer doesn’t seek love, she seeks company. She makes it clear when she says «i don’t wanna be alone». Being with someone for not being alone is really horrible. Instead, the song you don’t own me by Lesley Gore speaks of the opposite. This singer prefers her freedom: «I’m free and I love to be free». this song is loaded with self love and independence. In a relationship, the most important thing is loving yourself in order to give real love to your partner. This is how we should all understand love and not how Earth Kitt does it.

  8. In my opinion, what the singer wants to convey to the public is her need to find love in a man who knows how to take care of her well. I agree with her that the vast majority do not play this role well. However, in the parts of the song where she says she wants a man to buy her whatever she wants, to have a lot of zeros in his account… it doesn’t seem very correct to me. Yes, it is fine to have a love that has beautiful details with you, but money is not everything in a relationship and you should not abuse it either. Another aspect that stands out repeatedly is that she does not want to be alone, that she spends hours next to the phone and bites her fingers to the bone, I don’t think there is any reason to despair until one finds love, it is all a matter of time.

  9. “Where is my man?” tells the story of a woman who needs a man to live, to buy the things that she desires, to do what she wants. But nowadays, this is not what a woman usually looks for in man. Now they try to be independent, without needing a man, like in the song “You don’t own me”. Before, women used to be seen as a complement of the man, but now, they don’t need a man to live her own life.

  10. In my opinion, the singer expresses that she is alone in this world. Traits of loneliness are continuously observed and that she is going crazy, you can see it in the repeated times she says I need a man and, where is my baby? She feels lonely in this world and she needs someone to keep her company. I don’t agree with what he says at the moment because I am surrounded by friends, but if I were alone, I would beg my friends to come back with me. The song «Where is my man?» and the song «You don’t owe me» have nothing in common, they are practically polar opposites because the theme of the first song deals with the non-existence of a man, a loved and the search for his baby and in the second she makes it clear that she doesn’t want to be a man’s puppet and that she is better off without her husband.

  11. I believe that Eartha Kitt expresses that she is alone and that she needs to be convinced that she wants to be with a man and with a baby. She also tells us about her experience when she says I need a man who can take me then tount me and make me. She also tells us that she does not want a man with money, but that she is looking for a person who makes her feel good.

    I agree with her, because not everything that matters is money. and at the same time no, it is not necessary to have a partner to be happy. Happiness depends on you

  12. This song suggests to me that she is looking for a man who loves and cares for her but has money, not a man who has no money. At least what I seemed to understand. It’s a very old song from 12 years ago. From October 15, 2008 with more than 2,000,000 views on YouTube. Sung and performed in the video clip by Eartha Kitt and written by various writers including Bruce Bilanch among many others.

  13. This song is about love because she in the song only names desire to love a man who loves her. I also think that singer has made this song because she has suffered in her previous relationships and she uses this song as a hint to his past partners. The women wants a man who respects, loves her and someone to enjoy the little things in life like going to beach in summer. The singer is desesperate to find love and in the song he acts aggressively towards men.

  14. In this song, the singer wants to express that she is looking for a man who will make her happy by paying all her expenses. I know this because it names expensive things like Ascot, Capri or Rodeo Drive. I don’t agree with what the singer says because I believe that you shouldn’t value people for their money.
    The difference between the two songs is that in «Where is my man?», the singer talks about a girl who is looking for a rich man to depend on his money. And in the song «You do’t own me», the singer says that she doesn’t want a man because she wants to be free.

  15. I think that the message of the song is sexist, but consider that the song was wrote at 1983 the thought was acepted by the crowd. So the song cause rejection for the message of depencence of the woman who need be kept by a man and she can’t work to get her own money .

  16. This song speaks about the mans she she likes, how they have to be for her. This song suggest to me a calm or relaxing beacuse of is slowly and the voice of the girl isnt explosive in other words the song can be boring. In addition I agree with the song says because the love is the times that you spend with him and he can solve and detect your problems.
    This song is little similar with “You don’t owe me” because of the songs speak about the mans but the “You don’t owe me” speaks about the mans are controller and arent guard her womans, the other song “Where Is My Man” speak about who the man she likes. In addition the “You don’t owe me” is less bored because of the song has a explosive voice and is more singing than the other song who has a voice less explosive .

  17. This song is a bit strange and suggests to me that a best wants to depend on a man to support her while she isn´t working and wants to have a child so that she is not alone. My opinion regarding what he says is that neither yes nor no, on the one hand, someone who doesn´t like to be a maintained but on the other hand, not because I wouldn´t feel useful

  18. The song suggests that the singer is looking for a man to keep her company so she doesn’t feel alone and to spoil her and buy her expensive gifts.
    I don’t agree with what she says because you don’t need someone else to get costly items or company, you can be happy on your own and work to pay your own caprices.
    Although I understand why someone would want another person to maintain them, It’s more satisfying for me to get it on my own.

  19. What Eartha Kitt mean is that she wants a man who compliments her and gives her everything she needs, who want to always have someone by her side so she can be well and have all the things she wants, but I think that shouldn’t be the case since you don’t need anyone to compliment yourself, since you can do that on your own and without the need of anyone. You can achieve everything with efforts and dedications.

  20. Well, after listening to the song, i just come to a conclusion. She is a selfish woman. At first i thought she was a lonely woman, but after that i saw that she doesn’t need a normad man. She wants a very rich man who satisfies all her desires. She is not a romantic girl she is just materialist, i am not fond of her. I deprecate people like her

  22. This song makes me feel so strange, it’s probably the melodies. The song talks about a woman that feels alone and is searching a man to be with her, but she can’t find them. Whatever, the singer says that the man she wants is a man who can controle her. I don’t identify with this song, but it has its rhythm.

  23. I think that the song «Where is my man?» of Eartha Kitt means that the woman want one man who can bring her relief, buy her things…
    I believe that in life you not only need a man but you need more things like family, friends…
    In the case of the song «You don’t own me» i do agree with what the song says. I think no one should tell you what to do or to change you.

  24. When he heard this song makes we feel joy to know that the idea that the song transmits us, the inferiority of the woman. Today is almost eradicated. When she say «I need a man who can take me» or «A man who knows what I require» is a clear exaple oh what the society of that time was of which were the concers and role of woman. If we compareit with the other song although the lyrics are opposite the idea is the same, beginning of feminisn, fight for the equality and let society know that women aren´t lessthan men. It is also evident that the firt song is sung with sarcasm.

  25. This song is about a woman who only loves men for their money. The song suggests me that a lot of women use men to obtain their money, gifts and so on. I don`t agree with the singer because I think two people should be together by loving, no by money.
    In my opinion, a woman needs affection, friends and family to be happy.

    The second song is about a woman who doesn`t need any man to live. She wants to live without the control of a man because she likes being a free woman.
    From my point of view, this song is related to the women`s freedom

  27. This song transmit courage, as the woman is giving the world a new vision in which it doesn’t take a man to be complete or archieve your goals. The woman is independent and can do whatever she wants without waiting for anyone’s approval. Comparing the two songs, we can see that Where is my man? it is an irony, while the other is more direct, it transmits security so that we don’t allow ourselves to be intimidated or underestimated.

  28. This song wants to convey to us that a woman doesn´t need anyone by her side, in this case a man, to be herself and to do what she wants. She can get her goals and dreams without the help of a man. Compared to other song, we see that, Where is my man? expresess his feelings using irony, however, the other song conveys courage in a more direct way, we don’t habe to feel inferior to anyone or anything.

  31. This song, suggests to me that the protagonist of this song is not looking for the love of a man. In reality, what she is looking for is a millionaire man who will allow her to fulfill the life she wants to have, a life full of luxurious things and to go on a trip around the world.

    I do not agree with what the singer says, because I prefer that a person love me for the fact of how I am than a person who loves me for what I have.

In this song the singer is talking about her dreaming´s man should be kind and he have to buy all things, she is a very dependent person. i´am disagree with this song because i think we will have to be independent and get things on owr. Because it’s very useful for life, to do on own and learn how the life is.

  33. WHERE IS MY MAN? AND” YOU DON´T OWE ME´”

    I think that this song says that people need the company of others to not be alone in life. It´s not easy to find a person who makes ou happy if you are looking some characteristics.
    In this case I think that this person liked to have a lot of luxury and millonaire men to give him all the conforts and that is not so easy.
    This song also tells us the dependence she had on man.

    However, the song “you don´t owe me ”says that woman is free and does not have to depend on a man. Woman can do whatever she wants, She haven´t to be forced by a man.

  34. From my point of view, the singer expresses with a seductive voice that a man needs to be happy, she explains what she is looking for in a man and what she would like to live with. On the other hand, in Lesley Gore’s song, she wants to say the opposite, expresses her freedom and makes it known that she does not want anyone to control her, the song seems to be directed towards her future boyfriend and lets him know how she does not want to be treated.

  35. This song suggest to me that the woman who sings is very brave and she seens to be angry about the topic of the song. She wants to demostrate that women don’t need a man to be wappy, and she does it through this parody.
    I agree with her because no woman need a man who gives everything to her.
    Both songs speak about freedom in relationships on the side of women. The second song makes reference to woman not being objects that men can own.

    She doesn’t want to so he would be the perfect man ghalt do everything for her.
    In my opinion, this song shows a very bad or much verter,doesn’t care about women because she os showing a very dependet women Who doesn’t do anything for her self.And her only interest is in the men’s money.

  37. What this song transmits to me is the loneliness of a woman who is looking for her man and asking herself questions like: where is he. Also the type of man she likes saying that she adores the type of man who gives her the best things in life.
