Contest:: Gnarls Barkley Giveaway

We have a very sweet Gnarls Barkley prize pack to giveaway, but first, here's a brief bio for the two or three people that were living in a cave in 2006 and don't know who we're referring to:

Gnarls Barkley, an enigmatic presence in the entertainment business, formally introduced himself in 2006, to the tune of the popular song "Crazy." He released the acclaimed LP St. Elsewhere, garnered two Grammy Awards (and six nominations), and became a global phenomenon without ever appearing in public. He doesn’t care for the word "should."

With fame came attention, and Gnarls doesn’t care for attention, either. Thus, to protect himself from the public gaze, he split himself in two, the yin and the yang. This opened a tunnel through the forbidden underworld of popular music and human psychology, a world explored on Gnarls Barkley's second LP, The Odd Couple.

I read that first paragraph quickly and thought "man, their label is like that painful conversation guy from work, thinks Gnarls Barkley is one guy", but of course, I spoke to soon, it was all part of a clever intro. Anyway, check out this pretty awesome Gnarls prize pack:
  • a limited edition "The Odd Couple" double vinyl record (one record plays the album forward, the other plays it backwards)
  • a copy of "The Odd Couple" CD
  • a copy of their first album "St. Elsewhere"
  • a copy of Estelle's upcoming album "Shine," featuring an appearance by Gnarls Barkley singer Cee-Lo (and other artists like John Legend, Kanye West, Kardinal, etc.)
You want that? Rhetorical question actually, I know you want it for that double vinyl alone. Anyway, if you want that simply leave a comment or email (herohill[at]gmail[dotcom]) us with your favorite Cee-Lo song. We'll run that bad boy for two weeks and then pick a winner Biz-style. Don't know any Cee-Lo songs? Make one up, or better yet, check out Cee-Lo's solo albums, as they are rather enjoyable.

I've been a fan since Cee-Lo's appearance on Outkast's Git Up, Git Out on Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, so here it is for your enjoyment.
