Music Box: FUCK YOU!! (Not Really)


I enjoy Cee-Lo Green’s “Fuck You” much better than Lily Allen’s “Fuck You” for the aesthetic alone. Yes, I know, apples and oranges, (I LOVE Cee Lo and Lily both) – two different songs, two different genres, too different , uhhh…messages?

Cee-Lo Green is a gifted soul singer – this is indisputable to anyone whose heard him throw down his gritty Southern Fried soul, hearkening back to the greats of the 60s and 70s. So, it’s no wonder that his latest single juxtaposes that old school aesthete with, say SCHOOL HOUSE ROCK“Fuck You” has an indelible melody and Cee Lo’s delivery is fierce, ferocious and funky. Just don’t sing along too loudly on your iPod.

  1. I really like the lyrics being written out dynamically like that. Fun song.

    I prefer Lily Allen’s “Fuck You” because it’s righteous. This “Fuck You” is, frankly, rather pathetic. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
