Music Album Covers with Lips on Them - Part 2

A composite image of 16 album covers featuring lips
A composite image showing 16 albums covers with lips on them.

In our previous post about lips on album covers - part 2, we focused on red female lips. In this post, we have 16 more lip themed music album covers expanded to cover male lips, mustached lips, pierced lips, and lips with something between them. All the representations of lips on album covers clearly show the facial feature called cupid's bow, which is the curve of the upper lip said to resemble the bow of Cupid, the Roman god of love.

The albums in the composite image are arranged by date, which range from 1973 to 2020. For even more lips, see lips on album covers - part 3
