DANNY WILSON "MARY'S PRAYER" (1988)
by Mark Nobes, chief editor
The band was initially called Spencer Tracy, but they were forced to change their name for obvious legal reasons. The name Danny Wilson comes from the 1952 film Meet Danny Wilson which starred Frank Sinatra.
The B-side featured the track "Monkey's Shiny Day".
Band member Gary Clark went on to produce and write songs for many well-known artists including k.d. lang, Natalie Imbruglia and Mel C and Emma Bunton from The Spice Girls. Ged Grimes plays bass for Simple Minds and Kit Clark currently plays in the band Swiss Family Orbison, although he wrote music for video games before joining the band.
