REQUEST

“Our Lips Are Sealed” is a song written by The Go-Go’s guitarist Jane Wiedlin and The Specials and Fun Boy Three singer Terry Hall.

It was first recorded by The Go-Go’s as the opening track on their 1981 album Beauty and the Beat and served as their debut American single in June 1981. The single eventually reached top 5 in Australia and Canada, and top 20 in the United States. Although originally written and performed with three verses, it is an abbreviated version of the song that appears on Beauty and the Beat.

In 1983, Hall’s band, Fun Boy Three, released their version of “Our Lips Are Sealed”. Issued as a single, the track became top ten hit in the UK, and remains the best known version of “Lips” in that country — the Go-Go’s version, while a hit elsewhere, only made #47 UK.

In 2000, Rolling Stone named “Our Lips Are Sealed” one of the 100 Greatest Pop Songs of all time.

This special US 12″ promo contains the album track “Tonite” as well as the US #2 hit “We Got The Beat” which was the follow up single to “Our Lips Are Sealed”.

Although there are no remixes for this release it is still lovely to hear these tracks in their original vinyl format especially in 24 bit.
