Video Trivia[edit]

In the video for "Our Lips Are Sealed," you can see Belinda Carlisle crouching down behind the steering wheel of the convertible while Jane Wiedlin is singing her solo. Carlisle mentions in her autobiography, "Lips Unsealed," that she was very grumpy during the shoot, and thought the video idea was silly. "I couldn't even be bothered to get out of the car," she reflected. I don't know if that's worthy of entry into this article, but it's a fun little thing for people to look for when they watch the video. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:644:8401:4BEF:4981:9622:1676:B58B (talk) 20:48, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Needs clarity[edit]

This article is extremely confusing. It ambiguously drifts from The Go-Go's to The Duff Sisters to The Olsen Twins, and exactly which artist's single is charted isn't clear. "The Go-Go's Single Chronology" seems to imply that Hillary Duff sang 3 Go-Go's singles in the 1980s. Needs a lot of improvement.

5-10-2006: Wow, it's even worse now. Slightly less ambiguous, but with all the disjointed hackneyisms of the worst of Wikipedia. 100 Irony Pts. for inventor of "Bangkok Top 50". --24.196.175.110 23:50, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

5-17-2006: Now someone thinks Billboard is the only reliable chart for hits...sigh

Fun Boy Three[edit]

The song was co-written by Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Go's and Terry Hall of Fun Boy Three. Both bands brought out a single called "Our Lips Are Sealed" and seeing as both bands wrote it, both can be considered an originial and neither a cover. The article makes no mention of the Fun Boy Three version, it assumes that is exclusively a Go-Go's song.

Cleanup[edit]

Wikipedia:Guide_to_layout#Structure_of_the_article recommends against inserting section and subsection headers in close proximity to each other as they make the article look cluttered and inhibit the flow. Section headers at the very top of articles are also prohibited; the article isn't a section of itself. Extraordinary Machine 17:52, 18 July 2006 (UTC)

Separating Cover from this article[edit]

I think that the hillary duff cover was successful enough on its own to be separated from the original song. andrewrox424 Bleep 08:41, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

B-Side[edit]

Is it worth noting the B-side on the single? It's really good. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.155.43.147 (talk) 22:40, 25 September 2010 (UTC)
