"Lipstick Vogue" is a song by Elvis Costello. It was recorded by him with The Attractions as the penultimate track of his 1978 album This Year's Model. In his album notes for Girls Girls Girls Costello recalled that the song was inspired by "the rhythms of the Metropolitan line (on which it was written) colliding with a song by The Byrds called 'I see you'. I didn't mention this bit to Pete Thomas at the time, so what you hear is all his own work."Allmusic reviewer Tom Maginnis wrote that it "serves as a showcase for the new group's extraordinary energy and impressive skill, while Costello plays the role of the scornful cynic, spitting bitter words of one who has suffered third-degree burns at the hands of love."
