Our Lips Are Sealed

I suppose all of you made the same experience: You listen to a song you know for ages and afterwards you can't clear your mind from it. This happened to me the recent days listening to Fun Boy Three again. I always had a fondness to them probably because the were formed by the broken pieces of The Specials. Terry Hall's voice fitted to their songs like none other. He wrote this song together with Jane Wiedlin from The Go-Gos. Still a standard in the early 80s new wave sound. I think I should feature this band in a separate post.

I love this song, all the versions. Plus Gordon Strachan playing for United in 1985!

Two awesome versions. I also really love the Soup Dragons version they did for a Peel Session. I also love Gorgon Strachan, but try to forget he ever played for *them*!

Us Robster, not 'them'. Us.

This Yank won't touch the football references, but I'm completely with you fine folks on Our Lips Are Sealed. Terry Hall is a big hero of mine.
