Who’s Gonna Save My Soul (by Gnarls Barkley)

“The song was about the passing of James Brown. I felt helplessness, hopelessness with the loss of James Brown because he embodied everything, like James Brown is my father. I mean I got what I needed from him. I got guidance, I got style, I got approach, I got integrity, I got consistency, I got everything from James Brown.”Cee Lo Green (76)

She Knows (by Gnarls Barkley)

“That song is about possession. My mother, being a prized possession of mine, and vice versa; and then me being possessed by her spirit. I understood her wanting to move on — not give up, but move on. She could’ve died immediately in the accident, and I can’t say that I would have reacted as positively to that. But to watch her suffer for a few years straight — and watchin’ her bein’ brave enough to make a sound decision to move on — I now believe that that was merciful on me.”Cee Lo Green (620)
