▪ 2001

      British singer and songwriter (b. Oct. 10, 1959, Croydon, Surrey, Eng.—d. Dec. 18, 2000, Cozumel, Mex.), had a two-decade-long career during which she had her greatest solo success with the witty “There's a Guy Works Down the Chip Shop (Swears He's Elvis)” in 1981 and accompanied Shane MacGowan on “Fairytale of New York,” which was a hit for the Pogues in 1987. Among the other songs she wrote was “They Don't Know,” which she sang on her first record in 1979 and which was later a hit in a recording by Tracey Ullman.
