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.
