Harris’ Song of the Week: F**k You! by Cee Lo Green

One of the funniest moments of my week was reading through the iTunes comments under this song by Cee Lo Green. One of these comments eluded to this artist being a Gnarls Barkley rip off. After a chuckle I realized that this might not be obvious to the casual music fan. For those of you who didn’t put it together, Cee Lo Green is the former lead singer of Gnarls Barkley.

Although he lost Danger Mouse (the DJ who made up the second half of Gnarls Barkley), he hasn’t lost the ability to create amazing hit songs. This could be one of the most catchy songs of the summer/fall seasons. If it weren’t for the blatant cursing, this could easily be a #1 song in America. The song which features a great video (just like almost every song by Gnarls Barkley), showcases Green’s incredibly unique, soulful voice.

If you haven’t jumped aboard this train yet get to it. Green’s album “The Lady Killer” is set for release on December 7th. If previous projects by Green have taught us anything it is to expect more soul and plenty more singles. One this is for sure, it is great to hear this amazing voice back in the mainstream after a few year drought.
