Although she was not a one hit wonder, "Single Girl" is by far Sandy Posey's best known recording. It was actually written by Martha Sharp (also known as Martha Sharpe, Martha Marion Sharp or simply M. Sharp).
Her second single, Posey recorded it in Nashville on August 10, 1966. It reached #12 in the US in December 1966, and was covered by more than a dozen artists, including the song's writer, Martha Sharp, who recorded it for her 1973 album Anywoman
In the UK, it reached #15 in January 1967; when it was re-issued in September 1975, it went to #35.
The original runs to just under two and a half minutes, was produced by Lionel Moman and backed by "Blue Is My Best Color."
