Terry - Tracey Ullman

After having had success with 'They don't know', composed and recorded by Kirsty MacColl, Tracey Ullman recorded another Kirsty MacColl track, 'Terry' in 1984, shortly after the original version by MacColl had been a hit. This cover version is a bit unnecessary as it adds nothing to the original. The music sounds like a replica, and if anything, Ullman's vocals are less powerful than MacColl's.

That said, I've always been fond of the song 'Terry' and so having different versions of it is quite interesting. Quite rightfully, however, this version was not a hit.

My collection: 7" single no. 5023
Found: Record fair, Amsterdam, January 29, 2011
Cost: 0,5 euro
Tracks: 'Terry' / 'I don't want our loving to die'
