    The Xbox atari lyric was unfortunate in terms of dating, kind of like when rappers talk about Iraq.

    Yeah, this song is fantastic.

    Seriously one of my favorite songs in a long time.

    I love Cee-Lo though; I probably like his solo stuff more than Gnarls Barkley.

    Goodie Mob is too much for today's ears. None of the people who know Cee-lo today could even appreciate his Dungeon Family days. Gnarls Barkley isn't a bad way to be known, considering. Love the song, tho.

    I really don't like the song. Nostalgic early 60's soul juxtaposed with profane popular expressions? It's a genre skip away from being an Adam Sandler song and definitely a step back from what he's done with Gnarls and Outkast. Hopefully he gets paid. I like the guy.

    I agree about the profanity, but the song itself is quite good. I'm hoping that it was more a PR stunt for Ceelo Green and that the rest of his material will be more mature/less profane, but we'll see.

    My problem isn't so much with the profanity itself but more with the overall idea of the song. I don't think it's horribly ambitious.
