In 1991, the ‘ Do The Bartman’ song went all the way to number one on the UK singles chart. How did the song come about? Well, Michael Jackson was a huge fan of ‘The Simpsons’ (especially Bart) and called the producers to offer two things: a guest appearance, and a number one song to be penned by the King of Pop. Naturally, the producers of The Simpsons said….uh… YES. The song is performed by Nancy Cartwright (the voice of Bart) with backup vocals by Michael Jackson.
