I gave a Golden Teddy Award to Cee Lo’s “Fuck You” because it was a gleeful,, snappy, crazily catchy old school — as in 60s old school — pop song. But then everyone else agreed. But the ridiculousness of the FCC prevents the word “fuck” from airing on the radio, and Cee Lo saw $$$!, so he re-recorded the song as “Forget You.” The song lost all of its bite and became ubiquitous. I found it so annoying that I began to loathe even the original version. I’ll turn off whatever sound blasting device if I hear the opening notes.
Here are the videos for the two versions.
