“The Gossip Song” by Lipps Inc. – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Lipps Inc. is the disco project from producer Steven Greenberg who gave us the icon “Funkytown” in 1979. The group’s second album from 1980 was another success on dance floors with their cover version of Ace’s “How Long” and the second single “The Gossip Song”. The vocals of Cynthia Johnson upfront there is a strong characteristic among Lipps Inc. early releases. This track is a play on the talk that occurs behind the scenes with little fact. A catchy chorus rings out as powerful as Cynthia style has a nice Broadway-like quality.
I have taken the 1985 television movie “Malice In Wonderland” starring Elizabeth Taylor and Jane Alexander as Hollywood gossip columnists Hedda Hopper and Louella Parsons. The duo and their power to control the careers of celebrities eventually studio executives are given a stage here. More of an emphasis on the theme of the song and the fun gossip fare of the two columnists and their personal stories.
The film was directed by Gus Trikonis
