They Don't Know by Tracey Ullman

'Cause they don't know about us
They've never heard of love

Tracey Ullman's 1983 cover of Kristy MacColl's 'They Don't Know' is a personal favorite. If you've never heard Kristy's original 1979 version then click here to listen. 'They Don't Know' by Tracey Ullman sounds like something that was written in the Brill Building by Carole King and Gerry Goffin and then produced by Phil Spector. There are a few examples where the cover is better than the original, and I'm on Team Tracey when it comes to 'They Don't Know'. In all fairness, Kristy MacColl did work with Tracey on this recording, so click on the video clip and enjoy.
