Slow, Sweet Broccoli Beat


God, I love Gnarls Barkley. Cee-Lo Green’s voice is undeniably powerful, but in this song, it’s turned down low and used to haunting effect, with Danger Mouse’s slow, sweet beats behind it. The video might make some a bit squeamish, but it’s like a short film, and the actors are used well, their emotions are both funny and heartbreaking. The special effects? Well, they’re simply special, and when you have a heart that is anthropomorphized to look like Cee-Lo, singing into broccoli microphone, it’s all good, as they say.

“Who’s Gonna Save my Soul?”


About megstar73

I'm a 37 year old living in the East Bay near San Pablo Bay. I have worked as a Gallery Assistant at a small community college and am a medical assistant who has trained as a phlebotomist. I need to find time in my busy schedule as the mother of a very active toddler to study and get my phlebotomist's license. Interests include cheese, exotic beverages (not the alcoholic kind), ethnic food, improving my culinary skills, bacon, reading, music of all genres and combining all of the above together with friends! Last but not least, I love being the mother of a beautiful, sweet darling little girl. How lucky am I?
