Song of the day: Tracey Ullman – "They Don’t Know"

November 15, 2009

Here’s Tracey Ullman with the best thing she ever did, a sublime cover of Kirsty MacColl‘s “They Don’t Know” (1983):


“They Don’t Know” is a great, great pastiche/homage to the girl groups of the 60’s, and I love how the harmonies build and build in the last verse until they end up louder than the main vocal. Fabulous.

Here’s the original:
