Seven weeks for Cee Lo Green’s ‘Forget You’ as most played track on Atlanta radio

NBC

NBC

The Gnarls Barkley song Cee Lo Green sang a few years ago “Crazy” became an instant classic. Apparently, so has his more recent hit “Forget You” (and its more profane versions). It’s now been the most played song in Atlanta radio for seven weeks, with no contender in sight ready to take over.

The song was spun 250 times last week with top spins again on Wild (99), Q100 (93) and Star 94(47) with 11 spins on V-103, too. Two songs are quite a bit behind: Katy Perry’s “E.T.” has 216 spins, virtually all on Wild and Q100 and ditto with Black Eyed Peas’ “Just Can’t Get Enough.” If either song gets picked up by Star 94, they might have a shot at ousting Cee Lo.

The Black Eyed Peas song gained the most spins this week, up 88 spins.

Top 10 songs in Atlanta radio
1. Cee Lo Green “F-You” 250 (-4)
2. Katy Perry “E.T.” 216 (+6)
3. Black Eyed Peas “Just Can’t Get Enough” 214 (+88)
4. Rihanna “S&M” 203 (+1)
5. Kanye West “All of the Lights” 178 (+12)
6. Chris Brown “Look At Me Now” 158 (+7)

Thank God for WCLK 91.9 during the afternoon drive time. My car sound system loves the music and no commericals.

i like cee lo’s sound. love his voice, he is interesting on the voice, but rarely seems to be independent in his ringing in on someone- good luck to him though, and congrats on his longevity!

Agree with you on WCLK Levelhead. Where would I be without WCLK both in the morning and on my commute home.

i like cee-lo and i’m diggin’ ‘the voice’, but i can’t help but think how we went from ‘laughter in the rain’ in the 70s to ‘F-You’ today. i think we’ve surely fallen as a society. course i’m not trying to think too hard on this or anything

Yeah, STAR wont be picking up either of those 2 songs. That Black Eyed Peas song is too much rap, and that Katy Perry song is WAY too dirty for their soccer mom audience!

On a side note for Rodney, I notice you do the popular radio songs every week but have stopped doing the weekly “top tv shows in atlanta” segments?

Yes. I have stopped doing the top TV shows in Atlanta, though I should pick it up again. I recently started posting the top 10 Atlanta shows only on my Twitter and Facebook feeds.
