What started as a one-off collaboration became an international phenomenon an "Overnight Sensation," as the Raspberries would say. Gnarls Barkley, the duo of ex-Goodie Mobster Cee-Lo Green and bizarro producer Danger Mouse, weren't counting on their debut single, "Crazy," to take off. But it did, and so did its album, St. Elsewhere
. And now it's time for a follow-up, the upbeat but still soulfully melodic "Smiley Faces." If "Crazy" hit listeners in their soft spots with its smooth, tripped-out soul, "Smiley Faces" does it at a faster pace, one that's straight out of mid-'60s Motown. But there are two versions of the single. Smiley Faces Part 2
includes the title track; the explosive, horn-driven "Go-Go Gadget Gospel"; and a video of "Smiley Faces." Part 1
features the album version of "Smiley Faces" and a live performance from Later With Jools Holland
. Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse may be up to their necks in hype, but this single is further proof that they're worthy of it.
