I'm totally digging this tune

...from one-half of the duo that was Gnarls Barkley, Cee-Lo Green.  The song, called "F**k You" is not some product of a scary emo boy band, but rather a smart answer to a recent ex-girlfriend, and perhaps, muses an article from, a reading from the nation's temperature:

But that’s not what the song is really about—not in the world into which it was born, which is also the world that made it. The Wall Street shysters, the vicious Tea Party leaders, the BP executives: Who, living in 2010, didn’t already want to scream “fuck you!” to the loathsome rich people who seemed hell-bent on ruining our lives? Cee-Lo and Bruno Mars, co-writer and co-producer of the song, have grafted that sentiment onto a song that sounds, but for some obvious differences, like it could have been sung by the Temptations in 1968. Of course nobody can resist it.

Amen to that.

Warning - if you are opposed to the occasional obscenity, this song may not be your favorite.

Just be careful to keep singing along to a minimum around company.

  1. Wow, it's like modern day Frank Zappa. Thanks for turning me on to this. I never felt so happy belting out "F*&k You" before.
