Do Your Ears A Favor: Cee-Lo Green - "Fuck You"

Remember Cee-Lo Green? Most will remember him from his work with Danger Mouse in a little project called Gnarls Barkley and a little song called "Crazy."

My friend sent me Cee-Lo's latest song a few days ago and said, "Cee-Lo needs to sing every song. Every song would be improved by him singing it."

I replied, "Yes, that is a fact."

The single from Cee-Lo's upcoming album - The Lady Killer, coming out on 4 October 2010 - will give radio stations headaches because, well, it's just so damn good but Cee-Lo says, "Fuck you," about sixteen times.

I counted.

I dread the butchering of this song in the clean version. It will literally take the balls out of the song.

Whatever. You'll hear this in the clubs this summer/fall.

This '60s soul-inspired song might be the best single of the year. I can't wait for all the remixes.

Enjoy. Or, rather, fuck you.

Also, enjoy Cee-Lo Green covering "No One's Gonna Love You" by Band Of Horses. Nicely done, Cee-Lo. Further proof that Cee-Lo should probably sing everything.
