Tracey Ullman - They Don't Know

They just played this on Coronation Street and I'd forgotten how much I like it. This was the first single I bought (along with Billy Joel's Uptown Girl) and I am sure I drove my whole family demented as I played it constantly. I especially like the bells in the introduction and the whole 50s sensibility. It stands up to time, I still really like it.

I've not seen this video for about 30 years but it has Paul McCartney in it! Who knew? Tracey was a huge star and made it big in America. Did you know she is worth an estimated £75m. At least 25p of that was me buying her single. You're welcome Tracey.


  1. I'm a very committed Kirsty MacColl fan - few could touch her genius. It's top secret but I prefer this version.

  2. A Gary Glitter poster and a child getting smacked ....... you don't see that in music videos anymore!

  3. Diff - just a great song! Disco - yes, I know. It's a great video.
