Fun Boy Three - Our Lips Are Sealed (1983)

Of course, most of us in the States heard the Go-go's version first, since it was a huge hit for them in late '82 or so. I liked it enough to buy their first album, which I quite enjoyed. I doubt most people here knew there was another version. I wouldn't even call this a remake, since both bands wrote it (of course, Jane and Terry had a reason, but you can google that).

The first time I heard this, on KBPI's "new music" hour, the DJ snobbily said he preferred Fun Boy Three's version. This annoyed me because he sounded like he said it to be superior, and that was MY job. I like 'em both a lot now.
