Well, Isn't That Special?

So my Musical Puzzler was correctly answered by my good friend, ex-boss/co-worker, blogging pal and all-round good egg Marissa "The Pride Of Kankakee" Rapier of the world-famous Marissology blog.

The question, just to refresh your memory, was this: "Whose romance was the inspiration for the Go-Go's song 'Our Lips Are Sealed'?" The answer was Jane Wiedlin and Terry Hall of The Specials, Fun Boy Three and The Colour Field.

Wiedlin had what she called a "short but dramatic romance" with Terry Hall of the Specials during their 1980 tour in England; Hall later sent her some lyrics prompted by their relationship, inspiring Wiedlin to write "Our Lips Are Sealed", a song on which Hall has co-writer credits.

Speaking of our Tezza, here's the next question.

Terry Hall and his bandmates Lynval Golding and Neville Staples from The Specials and Fun Boy Three appeared in a cameo role in which video by Madness?
