Despite the song’s title (which won this year’s Grammy Award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance) you can’t help but like Cee Lo Green. Yes, the same Cee Lo Green from R&B duo Gnarls Barkley with Brian Joseph Burton (a.k.a. Danger Mouse). And yes, the same Cee Lo Green who is currently a coach on The Voice. Cee Lo really seems to enjoy what he’s doing, his music is fun-loving even when he’s wailing about unrequited love (I mean, he is really wailing in this song but somehow he pulls it off). We really need more fun-loving songs.

And before anyone posts sanctimonious comments about the use of the original song/title, let me say I’m not a big fan of censorship, especially when it comes to art and artists. It never ceases to astonish me when someone attempts to impose their moral code upon the creative works of others. This is not the same as having an opinion about the work but that opinion ends with you either liking or not liking.

Aside: the word fuck has got to be the most versatile word in the English language. To help explain my point more effectively than I ever could, the late George Plimpton (not really):
