Opening Line: 1 September 2006

Urgh, scary. It's already September. Work calls me back soon and today I had my new door/library access card through the post. Great.

I feel like a kid having to go back to school.

ANYWAY!

"Can you hear them, talking 'bout us"

Is it the Go-Go's and Our Lips Are Sealed? And why can I hear Terry Hall singing this? Did Fun Boy Three do a version?

Bck to school - back to school - After all these years that still kind of brings thoughts of prison back to mind.

'Fraid I was thinking of Fun Boy Three!

I know the answer! I know the answer!

I don't care if someone did already get it. It's so rare for me to get something like this. I have the album. It dates from a time when I owned very few albums, and therefore knew most of the lyrics on the ones I had.

Can you hear them
Talkin' 'bout us?
Telling lies
Well that's no surprise

Can you see them?
See right through them
They have a shield
Nothing must be revealed

It doesn't matter what they say
In the stupid games people play-ay-ay-ay

Dum dum, dum dum, dum dum, dum dum.

It doesn't matter what they say
It's a vicious game anyway-ay-ay-ay

[can't remember the rest and have probably got this wrong, but am still impressed at myself]

And now I've read the rest of the comments and been reminded of the chorus - and therefore the title of the song.

It was one of the reasons I bought the album in the first place. I liked that song.

From Wikipedia and for everyone's info:

"Our Lips Are Sealed" is a song written by Go-Go guitarist Jane Wiedlin and Terry Hall. It was first recorded by The Go-Go's for their 1981 album Beauty and the Beat (see 1981 in music). This version of the song was released as a single in 1982 (see 1982 in music) and peaked at number twenty on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, and fifteen on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart. The following year, Hall re-recorded the song with his own band, Fun Boy Three; it reached number seven in the British charts.
