A. Front

Tracey Ullman covered Madness’s “My Girl” in 1984. The title was changed to “My Guy”, and the single got the title “My Guy’s Mad at Me”. Madness’ Mark Bedford played bass on the track. Her version was in the UK Top 40 at the same time as Madness’ “Michael Caine” and peaked at number 23. “My Guy’s Mad at Me” was the first single taken from Ullman’s second studio album “You Caught Me Out”.

The music video featured the British politician Neil Kinnock, at the time the Leader of the Opposition. The single was also released as a 7″ picture disc, with a picture of Ullman and Kinnock sitting at a table.

    Again they ruined the song with the single version. After the long intro it fades out much to early 🙁 It’s a cool extended mix with the proper ending, but drags the song much to long, the best mix would be somewhere in between. It’s a nice cover, but the Madness original has much more punch to it!


  7. Joey Says:

    Thanks Paul, I hadn’t heard this version before, only the Madness original and the versions by Pet Shop Boys. This one kinda has a Cristina vibe. Cool.
