At this late point, noting how genius Cee Lo’s “Forget You” is equates to some old codger talking about how cool the Internets are. But sadly, my first exposure to this song was just last week on The Colbert Report, followed quickly the next day by my daughters’ dance studio. Since then, I haven’t been able to get it out of my head.
Of course, we play the cleaned-up version at home, and my wife even found the cast of “Glee” ruining it for millions as well. But like his group Gnarls Barkley’s 2006 monster smash “Crazy,” Cee Lo has managed to keep the hip-hop image while creating memorable melodies. With a pinging piano, fuzzy bass line and a memorable drum cadence, the song captures the old Motown feel, and Cee Lo’s falsetto is beautiful and soulful. In essence, he is a singer. No Auto-Tune, no rapping. What a welcome change.
