Oh, Cee-Lo! Until I bought The Odd Couple album, I was unaware of the song title’s heartbreaking parentheses. Engrossed in this frenetic headlong plunge into psychedelic gospel, and what with its allegedly seizure-inducing but dancetastic video, it’s easy not to notice that it’s another verbalisation of Cee-Lo’s apparently profound (and, quite frankly, nonsensical) self-loathing. COME HERE, CEE-LO, YOU NEED A HUG!

Bonus points: Look, it’s Justin Timberlake! And look ,it’s Cee-Lo (kind of) running!
