And I still dance to it when I hear it, and I remember Jennifer with love...{#Daisy}

For me, this song represents the beginning of the end of my "single" life, great, somewhat fuzzy memories, surprised my house is still standing after some of the rocking parties....equally surprised no cops showed up (the benefits of having 1/2 acre lot...keeps the neighbors from complaining as much) and thankful for the few non-rap tracks that we played over and over like this one.  I remember my roommate/homey and I rushed to download this on LimeWire immediately after we first heard it on a friend's myspace page....ahh...those were the years!!

I just pulled up this song and saw that I had rated it a 2 a while back. Upped it to a 5 today.  Kind of catchy, and I don't know why I rated it so low the first time.  Still not my favorite song, but it's not bad either.

and why would anyone who can think listen to any "clear channel" outlet of any kind? I don't know about you, but I refuse to be droned in violence, bigotry and ignorance manufactured by hacks who's job is dividing U.S. just like bad dope, you can buy a $5 rock of poison on any corner in the country, but the real thing is unobtainable.

It is dreadful. IMO Cee lo should just stick to hip-hop.  Goodie Mobb was wonderful.

Today, this followed a Stevie Wonder hit (yes, I know he has dozens) that had an interesting song comment.  The comment was something like this: "I wonder what the '70s would have been like if we had today's technology then."

Well, I assume that Stevie Wonder would sound a lot like Gnarls Barkley.  Same vibe that gets you moving, with Stevie lyrics to make a societal point.  Got no idea what Diana Ross or Led Zeppelin would sound like.  The Beatles' sound, of course, would not change one whit.

Thanks; I'll go now.

I like it.  Someone suggeted it has an "honest Motown feel," which I can certainly feel.  It's fun, poppy, and makes me wonder why I'm not doing some sidewalk boogie in my Chuck Taylors.

To everybody who's complaining that they hear this song too much and that it's too mainstream: the problem is with you listening to the other stations that play this, not with Bill playing it.

Tired of hearing this on Clear Channel stations and then hearing it here too?  Fine — do what I do and give up Clear Channel stations.  I rarely hear this song, and I love it.  Even a blind squirrel occasionally finds a nut, much like the mainstream radio industry found this gem of a song.

If you just plain don't like the song on its own merits, that's fine.  Feel free to dislike it.  But if your gripe is that you're hearing it too many places, then you need to change your environment.  For me, it absolutely belongs in the RP mix, no question.
