"Our Lips Are Sealed" is a song co-written by Jane Wiedlin, guitarist of The Go-Go's, and Terry Hall, singer of the Specials and Fun Boy Three.
It was first recorded by The Go-Go's as the opening track on their album Beauty and the Beat (1981) and was their debut American single in June 1981. The single eventually reached the top 5 in Australia and Canada, and the top 20 in the United States. Although originally written and performed with three verses, an abbreviated version of the song 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 a top ten hit in the United Kingdom and remains the best known version of "Lips" in that country. The recording by The Go-Go's, while a bigger hit elsewhere, only made No. 47 in the UK.
In 2000, Rolling Stone named "Our Lips Are Sealed" one of the 100 Greatest Pop Songs of all time.
