Madness recorded ‘My girl’ in 1979
 on their debut album ‘One step beyond’. 
The song first made its way into the band’s set
 when they were performing as The Invaders. 
The song was written by Mike Barson
 about his own girlfriend at the time, Kerstin Rodgers.
Tracey Ullman covered the song as ‘My guy’, 
altering the lyric to accommodate her gender.
 Madness’ Mark Bedford played bass on the track. 
Her version peaked at number 23 in the UK singles chart
 and the Dutch Top 40. 
The accompanying music video featured the British politician,
 Neil Kinnock, at the time the Leader of the Labour Party.
