Barbara Markay is an American musician. She was born and raised in Long Island, New York, in Rockville Centre. She was educated in piano and violin at Juilliard and the Manhattan School of Music and graduated from Juilliard with a bachelor's degree in composition. Moving from classical music to pop, she formed a five-part female singing group, The Girl Scouts, and later a musical theater troupe, Little Lulu & the Humpers, that performed in Miami Beach and New York City. With her own band she gained some commercial success in Europe with several singles in the Top 20 charts.[1] Two of the singles, It's All Rite to Fuck All Nite and Give Your Dick to Me, were heavily censored before receiving airplay. These have since been mentioned in lists of the world's worst music.[2][unreliable source?] In the US she collaborated in various musical projects including Carly Simon's Coming Around Again album, Michael Jackson's Bad video and as a backup singer to Bruce Willis. Since 1994 she has been writing her own music in the world music and new-age genres.[1]
