Cee Lo Green's Four Letter Word Hit

Cee Lo Green's delightful new song has a profane title not fit for a blog post headline. But "---- You" is a pretty irresistibly ebullient neo-Motown ditty, in which the Gnarls Barkley singer gives voice to his anger in the cheeriest of style. Since its release on Thursday, it's become a viral YouTube sensation, or meme, if you must, and that famous kidder 50 Cent has already recorded a comic response. You should expect to hear Green's Bruno Mars-produced track from his forthcoming solo album, The Ladykiller (due in December), about a bazillion times, though probably not on the radio, unless it's satellite radio. Here it is. And 50 Cent's remix is here.
