i’m not exactly sure why they used an alternate version of the song for the video. to be honest, i didn’t watch more than 30 seconds of this shit because of how disappointed i am with the song choice. the original version was close to being my favorite song of 2010, and i just don’t want to ruin that luster.
just the one clip for now, as the whole special airs this friday, may 20th on vh1. very excited.
so if you were near a computer this weekend, you might’ve been lucky enough to catch arcade fire or kanye west do their things at coachella, as well as many other artists and bands. well, thankfully someone was online to capture the stream and upload them all to videobam for the internet’s viewing pleasure. as an added bonus, you can download each and every performance. check out the links below. and if you’re wondering, i’ll keep updating this post as i find them.

Death From Above 1979
had no clue these two were hooking up for this remix in the first place, but sure enough, here’s the music video for the collaboration. everything’s pretty much the same, up until the 2:18 mark.
cee-lo hits the kimmel stage to perform a rousing rendition of his latest single from the lady killer. fairly surprised that this single hasn’t gotten even 1/8th of the play “fuck you” got, but then again, i’m not.
cee-lo’s newest video takes you back to the 90s when people had these sweet, nifty storylines to their music videos and made them matter. “bodies” is the latest cut from the lady killer to get the video treatment, but lets hope that “i want you” is on deck. also, look for janelle in the clip!
not sure why this exists, but instead of philip bailey taking the guest spot on the album version, melanie fiona takes over. still a great cut.
cee-lo green – fool for you [f. melanie fiona]
seeing as how cee-lo and danger mouse have a gnarls-ly connection (sorry), cee-lo took some liberties with broken bells cut “the ghost inside” for some comic relief…except it’s legitimately a total BAMF of a song. stream for now. plz internet, send me an mp3.
cee-lo green – the ol’ sauseej [broken bells parody]
my man cee-lo hit the snl stage to perform the immensely played out version (“forget you”) of the already played out song “fuck you” but everyone saw that coming. wish he would’ve done a slow jam like “old fashioned” or “i want you,” which is a front runner for the best song i heard in 2010. regardless, he rules and his band is amazing. check the clip for “bright lights, bigger city” under the cut.
for his annual bbc new year’s hootenanny, jools holland rung in 2011 with the likes of cee lo green, vampire weekend, wanda turner and many more backed with his rhythm and blues orchestra. check out videos of green throwing down “i want you,” “forget you,” and “reet petite” as well as vampy weeks dishing out “run,” “holiday,” and “cousins,” all below the jump.
the slutty talk show host gets funky with cee-lo, who’s lookin as proper as ever, and he’s not even wearing pants.
this video is full of two great people chatting in the most humble of settings on cee-lo’s new show with fuse. my only gripes are that this very short clip (4 minutes) is cut into 3 parts. sad times.
part II + III after the jump.
yeah, it’s 2:45 a.m. and i got bored. a new review for ya’ll to vibe with. if for some reason “fuck you” wasn’t enough of an incentive to pick this album and give it a spin, then let the part of the album that’s actually incredible and timeless. long after you tire of hearing “fuck you” every where you go, the rest of this album will serve you in the 11th hour.
god bless cee-lo green. hit the jump.
speaking of cee-lo, mr. green stopped by the good morning america studios to bless them with a live performance of one of the poppier tracks from his latest full length. if you haven’t jumped on this album’s nuts yet, be sure you check out grizzly’s review for further convincing. definitely one of the years’ best.
this is funny. quick interview and witty banter with colbert, then the performance under the jump. this song’s about to run its course in a little bit, so live it up until you can’t listen to it for another year.
