LIPPS INC. "FUNKY TOWN" (1980)

This electro-disco classic was the second single to be released from the band's 1979 debut album Mouth to Mouth. This was the only major chart hit for the studio band, reaching No.2 in the UK and No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S for four weeks.

The song was a hit in many countries across the globe, but further single releases failed to chart, although Rock It did manage No.64 on the Billboard Hot 100. However, Lipps Inc. had a few dance chart hits during the 80s, with How Long? hitting No.4 on the U.S. dance chart.

The man behind Lipps Inc. was Steven Greenberg from Minneapolis in the U.S. He wrote and produced all of the group's songs and played many instruments. The lead singer was Cynthia Johnson (she also played Saxophone) and the rest of the band were session musicians.
