Template:Infobox single "(Would I Still Be) Her Big Man" is a song by the Brigands, an American garage rock band. It appeared as the A-side of a single recorded in New York City and released on Epic Records, and was written and produced by Artie and Kris Resnick, who wrote the Rascals' "Good Lovin,'" and other popular hits of the time. The song's lyrics depict the worries of a factory worker who spends his hard-earned money dressing up "wind and dine" his lover, a woman with expensive tastes, but wonders if she will still love him when she finds out that he is working class. Little is known about the Brigands, but some have attributed their origins to Forest Hills, Long Island, New York. Others have speculated that they were an ensemble of session musicians who recorded the song as a one-time act under the moniker "the Brigands." The song has appeared on various compilations such as the Back from the Grave, Volume 2 LP, released in 1983 and the Nuggets 4-CD box set released in 1998.
