Anglo For Your Ear: Tracey Ullman’s “They Don’t Know”
Before she launched her successful sketch comedy series (and helped launch The Simpsons), Tracey Ullman was best-known in the States as a one-hit wonder. The multi-talented star had a number of UK hits, but she only struck it big with 1983’s “They Don’t Know,” a cheeky girl-pop ballad penned by the late Kirsty MacColl (who sings backup on Tracey’s version). It rose to No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100. Seriously, check her out in this video: Tracey was a babe!
