How Did I Miss This? Cee-Lo’s Newest.


I don’t know when it started, but it was certainly before the Gnarls Barkley days when I first heard Cee-Lo Green.  The song was “Closet Freak” and it set my soul-loving heart on fire, as Green’s throwback voice and horn-laden orchestration was phenomenal, and now he’s apparently got a new viral hit on his hands called “Fuck You.”  Obviously the song shouldn’t be heard by children and all that jazz.  You’ve been warned.

How awesome is that?  It’s like Johnnie Taylor stayed up all night getting really drunk and bitter before laying down a freestyle track.  Even the “video” is Sixties-rific with its pop art colors and lettering.

I don’t know how it’s eluded me for this long, but I’m glad it’s finally crossed my path.
