It was a curious predicament then and it is now: females who write and compose their own music and on top of that, perform the lead. One of a rare breed but if you were Barbara Lynn, this was her every day. Lynn got her start playing in clubs around her home state of Texas but was destined for bigger things. Her very first single, “You’ll Lose a Good Thing” made it to the coveted #1 spot on the Billboard charts. 

"I Don’t Want a Playboy" is one of the more obscure tracks of Lynn’s but will please those who are familiar with her style. True to form, "Playboy" has that signature Barbara Lynn jangly guitar sound (which she played left-handed) that, when paired with piano, elevates the basic sad girl lament to a complex piece of musicality.

I felt like crying but nothing came out. it was just a sort of sad sickness, sick sad, when you can’t feel any worse. I think you know it. I think everybody knows it now and then. But I think I have known it pretty often, too often.
