Lipps Inc (pronounced like "lip sync") was a studio band that achieved one significant hit, "Funkytown" in 1980. The song is considered, by some, the last disco song to hit #1 in the U.S.

The group was formed in Minneapolis by Steven Greenberg, who wrote and produced all of the group's music, and who also played several musical instruments. Multi instrumentalist Greeenberg had played in several bands and had been trying to secure a production deal. He finally caught the interest of casablanca Records with a disco track called "Rock It".Casablanca asked Greenberg for a full album and he gathered a cast of sessionplayers that initially included David Rifkin, guitarist Tom Riopelle and Terry Grant on bass. Most importantly, he recruited lead vocalist Cynthia Johnson, former miss Black Minnasota. Mouth to Mouth was released in 1980, when Funkytown was released as the second single it became an instant hit. It spent 4 weeks at no 1 in the US and a major hit around the world.

Their further singles failed to match their initial success (their only other Hot 100 entry was "Rock It", which peaked at #64), The six-song release Pucker Up followed, featuring a disco remake of the British pub rock group Ace's hit ballad "How Long." which reached #4 on the U.S. dance chart. The album however didn't attract too much attention, and neither did the next Lipps Inc. full-length, Designer Music. The group released their final full-length album, 4 in 1983 it didn't cause a stir and Cynthia Johnson left for good that year. subsequently Lipps Inc. threw in the towel. Greenberg eventually moved into web design, and owns a profitable company still based in Minneapolis.
