I posted on Facebook about the song “Are You a Boy or Are You a Girl” and got so much response that I decided to do a full blog entry on it. The Barbarians reached #55 in October of 1965 with it, and of course this was during the full attack of Beatlemania, so why not do a commentary on the hairstyles prominent in those days.
A year after the Barbarians, a band called the Ravens covered the song.
And in 1978 a band calling themselves The Dogs did a harder rock version.
Total hindsight allows us to give a different look at “Are You a Boy or Are You a Girl,” and who better than our own Jayne County. She included her interpretation on her 1995 CD “Let Your Backbone Slip.”
