Glenn Shayne - "Lipstick"

Review by Patrick Joseph


“Lipstick” is a gritty, driving track with a sultry feel. The insistence of the rhythm section underscores a seductive vocal performance perfectly. This song is dangerously provocative and compelling. The verses string listeners along and raise expectations, richly rewarded by a huge chorus. The catchy and rocking feeling of this music is infectious. A horn section and perfectly placed “claps” give the piece a rootsy layer which serves the song well.


Lyrically, “Lipstick” is a poetic homage to a specific type of seduction.


“Your lips are sweating, aren’t they, baby………I’m hot look at me, I’m licking my lips for you.”


The sound of the music places a special emphasis on these racy lyrics.


“Come closer don’t be shy now, baby, Your mind is ticking, How far is your desire willing to go.”


The expert vocal delivery and well-crafted arrangement inject these lyrics with an enticing urgency.

The arrangement of “Lipstick” serves the song absolutely and was produced and recorded through Tunedley's roster of Artists.. The bluesy sound of the piano tempers the rocking bass and drums. A horn section delivers precise crescendos while handclaps keep the vibe of the song pushing. The vocal performance on this track is an absolute showstopper. The sexy and serious delivery of the lyrics makes this song come to life. You and your partner will be dancing a little closer while listening to “Lipstick.”
