Today's ear X-tacy: The Go-Go's "Our Lips Are Sealed"
Today's ear X-tacy features a classic track or deep-cut from the Alternative era every weekday at 10:10.
This week in 1982, new wave legends The Go-Go’s topped the US album charts for 6 consecutive weeks with their debut album, “Beauty and the Beat.” They were the first all-female band that wrote their own songs and played their own instruments to achieve that feat.
The album’s opening track, "Our Lips Are Sealed," was 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 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees.
