This may seem like a random thing to post to the casual observer, but it’s actually an indirect reveal of one of my top picks for a super-secret Top 50 list Howie Decker is putting together for UnderScoopFire and he asked me to contribute.


So many possibilities must be running through your mind–is it a list of the Top 50 Awesome 80’s Songs You’ve Completely Forgotten About?? The Top 50 Weirdest Paul McCartney Cameos?? The Top 50 Music Videos that Feature Bowling?? You’ll just have to wait and see.

I have no idea how the voting process will work, so this may or may not even make it into the final Top 50, but that’s of little consequence. It’s a fabulous song and Tracey Ullman is fabulous singing it. She also happens to be one of my favorite comediennes of all time and I welcome any excuse to post anything of hers.

Appropriately, this song is from Tracey’s 1984 debut album which is titled, “You Broke My Heart in 17 Places.” Yup, that about sums up how I feel lately.
