Cee-Lo, "F**k You"


Man, it really seems like everyone has had a pretty crappy summer, doesn't it? Everyone's just in a foul mood. The thing about Atlanta's Cee-Lo, though, is that even when he's in a foul mood, he can make music that sounds as joyous and terrific as this most recent single from his forthcoming Lady Killer album. Enjoy! And here are five other songs from this summer that similarly express very similar feelings: A full handful of musical middle-fingers!

THIS SONG IS SO GOOD.

YES.

If Cee-Lo has trouble keeping women because he's short on cash, I guess I should just marry that hobo lady already?

Holy crap. Holy crap, I think I had an eargasm. Jesus, I want to hear that song everywhere I go for the rest of the summer.

look_lookatme (#2,056)

My goodness.

jhjhjhj (#7,025)

I JUST FEEL BETTER ABOUT EVERYTHING!

Cord_Jefferson (#2,111)

After listening to it for probably the 25th time, I just realized how gutsy it is to make a definitive summer jam that will NEVER get radio play.

Seriously. Try and imagine a bleeped version.
Can't be done.

This gets my vote for "Song of the Summer." I just wish I waited until this came out to delete the idiot who was jerking me around from my gchat list, as now I want to send this to him as a buh-bye. But he doesn't deserve the happiness of this song anyway.

Holy fucking bag of awesome!

Brilliant.

hungrybee (#2,091)

"This is one for your dad, your dad, your dad!" I love Cee-Lo more than I did yesterday.

forrealz (#1,530)

Seriously Dave, thanks- this saved my afternoon.

Rod T (#33)

how is this only at 39K hits on youtube? it's major.

riggssm (#760)

At 19:00 EDT, on a Saturday, and approx 30 hours after being posted online, it's at 345,000 views.

A friend on FB imagined a Janelle Monae/Ceelo Green collaboration. I would perhaps explode from the wonderful musical goodness of that.

Bittersweet (#765)

Janelle and Cee-lo together might cause thousands of such explosions and may need to be avoided due to the public health ramifications.

Ah, shit, they should risk it.

Pandemic Endemic (#3,825)

Tis a thing of funky beauty.

Jeff Barea (#4,298)

What are you guys all butt hurt about this Summer? Unless you got Salmonella like me?

According to Quantcast, the demos are looking good in all the right categories (though way to white in here) for web success.

The trajectory is up in almost all categories, got good metrics (at least compared with May beginning)…

You even have a lab research department that apparently is operating at full strength.

roboloki (#1,724)

are you sure it's salmonella? cuz those symptoms could also indicate anthrax.

Bobby Womack (#4,074)

The Cee-Lo song is great, but Wocka Flocka Flame? That guy's a fucking joke.

Bobby Womack (#4,074)

Pardon me, it's "Woka." Ugh.

mcbeachy (#548)

Makes me actually feel like buying a CD again. And Freddie Gibbs, too. That cat can do some beats!

carpetblogger (#306)

HOLY SHIT.

do ya'll all have tiny little dicks? this sounds like a man who is an abusive asshole. catchy tune sure, but still deeply insecure.

Niko Bellic (#1,312)

Using your real name? Well fuck me, you must be a hoot to hang out with.

Oh, dear? Did this get cross-posted to Jezebel for some inexplicable reason?

roboloki (#1,724)

this begs the question…

Niko Bellic (#1,312)

It's the invasion of Facebookers. God help us.

Niko Bellic (#1,312)

If you're lucky enough to spend your summers in Houston projects, it can be a bit more hardcore (don't say I didn't warn ya):

Face (#3,654)

Love this song…but all I can think about is his spoiled brat of a daughter that was on My Super Sweet 16. She was hideous.

katiechasm (#163)

boring

Man, I can't get enough of this song. "gggrhhh I really hate your ass right now"
