Cee-Lo Green - The Lady Killer

Continuing with my Grammy theme here, of course I've heard of Cee-Lo before. I love his music for the most part. I remember this cat going all the way back to Goodie Mob - but most of you probably remember him vividly from Gnarls Barkley. I absolutely LOVED that record. Well, I guess they had two - so I'll emphasize I love the St. Elsewhere record. I'm semi surprised I didn't review this one earlier - as I was on the 'F**k You' train pretty early in the single's release. I didn't think it had the merits to be nominated for a Grammy award - but the great people at Glee seemed to really drive up the interest. I wanted to talk about him because of his performance last night. If you didn't see it, check it out on YouTube or something. He was dressed Elton John-esque strumming the piano. Apparently Gwyneth Paltrow did a cameo on Glee where she sang the song or something? I don't watch the show - but I'm sure someone out there does. Anyhow, she sang along with Cee-Lo and a bunch of muppets doing background vocals. It was a very entertaining performance. Cee-Lo seemed to forget the words in the opening, and him and Paltrow seemed to be on different pages a couple other times. But hey - that's what makes live performances so interesting! I kind of wished they'd have just busted out the real lyrics, but it was on 5 second delay - so lot of good that'd have done. Anyway, this album. If you didn't follow my opening, I love his style. He's very unique and the ranges of his works are always second to none. This album has a little bit of everything. Rock n Roll, hip hop, pop, anything. Other than the track everyone knows, this is chalk full of really good toe-tapping tunes. Check 'em on out today. I think you'll be a Cee-Lo fan too.
