As Cee-Lo Green's runaway hit of a new album The Lady Killer (Elektra Records) continues to dominate charts all over the globe, including the latest hip-hop top five from Amoeba Music Hollywood this week, radio DJs everywhere debate whether playing the sanitized / FCC friendly version of the album's popular online song and video "Fuck You" is worth playing at all. As you know, in its airplay-ready version it becomes "Forget You" with all swear words getting changed or edited. So is it worth playing? I say a good song is a good song, and "Forget You" is a great song. And if you had never heard the other (real) version you would enjoy it thoroughly. It reminds me of back in '94 when listeners heard "Mack Of The Year" by Dru Down being played on KMEL long before they heard the original, much nastier version, "Pimp Of The Year," by the Oakland rapper. However, once you have heard the original Cee -Lo song, the radio version sounds like it is missing the main ingredient. Below are both versions for you to be the judge of. Please post your opinion in comments below. Thanks!
