This was the fifth of seven US Top 10 hits for Gary Lewis & the Playboys, and one of two that Lewis wrote along with Al Capps, Thomas Leslie and his arranger Leon Russell. In our interview with Gary Lewis
, he said, "That was really fun. Leon and Snuffy (producer Snuff Garrett) said, 'All right, let's write a song about the California coast and the beach and the surf and the sun.' I said, 'Oh, so you want to do like a Beach Boys thing?' And they said, 'Yeah, yeah. With voices and a lot of harmonies and stuff like that.' I said, 'Well, great. I like the Beach Boys.' They recorded in the same studio that we recorded in, too. So I was always visiting them or they were coming and visiting me on my sessions. So that's what we were going for, a Beach Boys type sound. And 'Just My Style' was the second biggest tune we had for Liberty."
