As a songwriter I have to say that once in a while a song comes along that really makes you think “Damn, I wish I had thought of that.” Of course the best songwriting comes from whatever you can gleen from an experience you have. Since I’ve never had the experience of the song I’m posting today, I can’t really have had the mind to write it. Though I know I would have loved to have been the mind that thought of it.
In case you haven’t clicked on it, it’s called Fuck You! As a title alone that is a vast majority of people on the planet that can relate to the sentiment, but the story inside it is even better. That’s the part that I find funny and brilliant. I do have to comment on one line in the lyric because it rhymes great, but makes me curious to find out how people will react – it’s the line: I thought you should know nigga. It’s definitely funny, even in context. However I can already hear people getting up in arms about it. All the more reason that this song will be a hit, beyond the fact that it’s catchy and lots of people can relate.
I really like the retro vibe. Especially since I bill my own music has having a Modern Retro vibe. I’m more rock, but Cee-Lo is much more funk in this. I like it so much that I seriously want to write a retro funk tune like this. Maybe that’s what my buddy Jesse and I will accomplish in the near future (as we’re currently pumping out some old school instrument funk tracks). Regardless, it doesn’t change the fact that myself or we didn’t come up with it, bummer. 🙂
I can already tell that this will hit the top of the charts and if it doesn’t something is seriously wrong with the system.
Go get it now!
