"Tracie" is a song by British band Level 42, written by Gary Husband and Mark King, and recounts King's times with his childhood sweetheart, Tracie Wilson. It appeared on the band's 1988 album Staring at the Sun, and features keyboardist Mike Lindup playing harmonica.

It was remixed for issue as a single in early 1989, upon which it peaked at #25 in the UK, and at #14 in the Netherlands. The photo of the band on the sleeve of the single is taken by Linda McCartney.
