show that spawned The Simpsons).
It was in 1983 that Ullman met with
success as a singer on the Stiff Records label. Ullman released two albums in the 80's:
Broke My Heart in 17 Places (1983) and
Me Out (1984). Hit songs from these albums
you may remember include "Breakaway", "They Don't Know",
"Move Over Darling", "My Guy", and "Sunglasses".
Some of you will also remember that Ullman was an
