Cee-Lo song "(Forget) You"

Is it sinful to listen to a song that has numerous f-bombs in the verse, chorus, and song title? The song is NOT about s-e-x. It’s a kiss-off to an ex, like that Kanye West song “Gold Digger.” So, there’s not really any proximate occasion of sin unless someone’s prone to cursing…? I don’t think the “radio-friendly” edit will be released until later this year.

Ok, just me, but why would you want to even listen to any songs with that disgusting F*** word…

  1. It’s a very catchy song. (Same guy behind that song “Crazy” by Gnarls Barkley.) I have tried to get it out of my head but can’t.

  2. As a single guy who has been written off by superficial women, I can relate to the lyrics like:* “Yeah i’m sorry, i can’t afford a ferrari / but that don’t mean i can’t get you there / I guess he’s an xbox and i’m more atari / But the way you play your game ain’t fair.”

ok kiddo
