Nothing about the Go-Go's' "Our Lips Are Sealed" seems to have aged in 30 years, its oddly complacent beauty and conspiratorial sisterly aura as shimmering as ever—except now the jelly-shoe synthesizers signify nostalgia and endless summer as much as the surf guitars and girl-group harmonies ever did. Seven other great Go-Go's pop singles followed in the '80s, each holding up as well because the cheeriness in Belinda Carlisle's singing felt earned and paid for, her punk toughness more apparent with distance. They quit after three albums, but keep reuniting, recording, and touring—there they were, rocking like the Soviettes on the Dancing With the Stars finale a few weeks ago.
