Danny Wilson were a pop group formed in Dundee, Scotland.
Brothers Gary Clark (vocalist/guitarist) and Kit Clark (guitarist) formed a band with friend Ged Grimes (bassist) in 1984, initially under the name Spencer Tracy. However, after objections from the estate of Spencer Tracy, they changed their name to Danny Wilson, as taken from the 1952 Frank Sinatra film, Meet Danny Wilson.
Initially spotted busking around Dundee, they signed to Virgin Records in 1986. The following year they released the album, Meet Danny Wilson; the lead single, "Mary's Prayer" was initially unsuccessful in the United Kingdom, but it eventually became a Top 30 hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart later that year. Buoyed by this success it was re-released in 1988, and reached number 3 in the UK Singles Chart. The band released its second and final album, Bebop Moptop the following year, including the hit single "The Second Summer Of Love", which reached number 23. They broke up in 1991.
