Music Therapy: Gnarls Barkley- Who's Gonna Save My Soul

Whoever said that music was universal was right.

The Odd Couple from Gnarls Barkley is one of my favorite albums that I enjoy listening to occasionally. Gnarls Barkley consists of  Cee Lo Green, who is the rapper/ vocalist, and producer Danger Mouse. The duo's sound is a fusion of alternative hip-hop, rock, and soul. The songs are full of meaning once you actually listen to the lyrics.

Check out "Who's Gonna Save My Soul" below, along with the lyrics.

"Who's Gonna Save My Soul"


[Cee-Lo]
I got some bad news this morning
Which in turn made my day
When this someone spoke I listened
All of a sudden, has less and less to say
Ohhhhhh how could this be?
All this time, I've lived vicariously
Who's gonna save my soul now?
Who's gonna save my soul now?
How will my story ever be tollllld now?
How will my story be tollllld now?

Made me feel like somebody
Hmmm, like somebody else
Although he was imitated often
It felt like I was bein myself
Is it a shame that someone else's song
Was totally and completely dependant on
Who's gonna save my soul now?
Who's gonna save my soul now?
I wonder if I'll live to grow old now
Gettin high cause I feel so lowwwww down

And maybe it's a little selfish
All I have is the memory
Yet I never stopped to wonder-ahhhhh
Was it possible you were hurtin worse than me
Still my hunger turns to greeeeed
Cause what about what I neeeeeed?!
And OHHHH~! Who's gonna save my soul now?
Who's gonna save my soul now?
Ohhhh I know I'm out of control now
Oooh-oooh, tired enough to lay my own soul down
