Cee-Lo's infectious, heart-tugging "Fuck You"
has done an admirable job of giving the f-bomb a patina of respectability among people who are usually adverse to exalting swears and off-color language. Even the most prudish listener can't help but sing along to this tune, even if it means muttering over the chorus in order to keep his or her principles intact.
But what about the other Seven Dirty Words
made famous by George Carlin
? Do they get any love? Or is this just Fuck's world, and we just live in it? We combed the cussing archives to spotlight the best songs that use the remaining six dirty words.
