Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoffs - Our Lips Are Sealed

After covering songs from the 60's and 70's on the albums Under The Covers Vol. 1 and 2, Matthew Sweet and sometime Bangle Susanna Hoffs are ready with Under The Covers Vol. 3 for a November release, covering the 80's. As was the case with the previous two collections the songs are well-chosen. This time around there are songs by The Smiths, R.E.M., Echo & The Bunnymen, Kirsty MacColl, Pretenders, Tom Petty and more, as well as the version you'll find below of "Our Lips Are Sealed", the song that was co-written by Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go's and Terry Hall of The Specials. The Go-Go's were first to record it in 1981, then Hall recorded a version with his new outfit Fun Boy Three the following year. A great pop song, and Sweet and Hoffs do it justice with a fine version.

Follow the link below for their take on "Our Lips Are Sealed", and an interview, as well as the full track list.
