Gnarls Barkley – Who Cares!

Gnarls Barley is one crazy music group well-known for their crazy lyrics and insane videos. In fact the song ‘Crazy’, a Marvin Gaye remix, is their most hit song. The band consists of rapper/singer Cee Lo and producer Danger Mouse (DJ from New York). Even though they are known as a hip-hop band, they don’t follow any certain genre. Their music are mostly a mix of r&b, pop, hip hop and electronic. Their first album ‘St. Elsewhere’ came out in 2006 and now they are working on their next album ‘Atlantis’; expected to come out sometime this year. First time I listened to ‘Crazy’, I thought it was just little above OK. I knew it had topped #1 in UK and #4 in US charts, and was quite surprised. Then I heard ‘Who cares’. I still remember the first time I listened to this song; I was driving outbound on Brooklyn bridge, got stuck in the stupid NYC traffic, my ipod was on shuffle mode, suddenly this song came on and I was just stunned by the richness of the music and thoughtful lyric. Now it’s your turn.

Gnarls Barkley :: Who Cares
Basically I’m complicated
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn’t call it schizophrenia
But I’ll be at least 2 people today
If that’s okay
And I can go on and on and on… but who cares?

It’s deep how you can be so shallow
And I’m afraid cause I have no fear
And I didn’t believe in magic
Until I watched you disappear
I wish you where here
And I can go on and on and on… but who cares?

You see, everybody is somebody
But nobody wants to be themselves
and If I ever wanted to understand me
I’ll have to talk to someone else
Cause every little bit helps
And I can go on and on and on… but who cares?

Feels like… the surreal life
But it’s still nice
Wish I could live twice
but I still might
if these bones heal right
I see a little light
though it’s still night

And I can go on and on and on… but who cares?
And I can go on and on and on… but who cares?
