Song of the summer

It's not going to be in Rhapsody (or US Stores) until May 9th, but I cannot stand idly by any longer. Gnarls Barkley combines two of my fave hip-hop artists (Dangermouse + Cee-Lo - aren't you glad they didn't go with Cee-Mouse or Danger-Lo?) and their impending release St. Elsewhere is striking for both the fact that rapper Cee-Lo can really sing, and Danger Mouse's soul beats are deliciously smooth.

The lead single "Crazy" will be the song of the summer (it's shot up to #1 in the UK already,) and Ray Lamontagne has already done a beautiful cover of the song (download.) (Original not posted because the RIAA is in hyper-drive trying to plug the leak right now - but if you look hard enough, you'll find it here.)

you have to make better research before giving an opinion. Many songs with facts are better.
