"Peace of Mind" is a song by the Bee Gees, released in Australia as their third in March 1964 and backed with "Don't Say Goodbye".[1]

Recording and lyrics[edit]

It was later included on the group's first album The Bee Gees Sing and Play 14 Barry Gibb Songs.[2] It was recorded on February 1964 at Festival Studio in Sydney.[3] It was also included on the 1998 compilation Brilliant from Birth.[4] Although no production credit is given, Robert Iredale who had produced the previous single was credited as engineer.

The song is about peace of mind. The man explains that he may find peace of mind loving a girl, and the singer says to a girl, that she make him blue. The girl hurts him and she fool around, and the girl don't even give him a chance and the singer tells her that it's the end of their romance.[5]

Barry is singing lead vocals, with Robin and Maurice Gibb singing harmony vocals. On 1:19 of the song, someone plays a lead guitar solo but the player was not credited.
