Cee-Lo Green, formerly of the Goodie Mob and Gnarls Barkley, released one of the greatest songs in the history of humankind last week.

It's called "Fuck You" (NSFW) and it's full of modern poetry. But, beyond it's lyrical genius, "Fuck You" has an indescribable, unique quality that's just perfect for mashing up with movie soundtracks.

Which lead us to this idea: What would happen if you replaced "F**k You" with the songs in some of the greatest moments in movie-music matchmaking history? Well, we're gonna show you.

After the jump, we provide you with three examples of how this brilliant song mashes-up with Dirty Dancing, Shawshank Redemption and (because we just had to) Say Anything. Enjoy.

Cee-Lo in Shawshank Redemption
...because nothing sets the guards off like a little "Fuck You."

Cee-Lo in Say Anything
...because you shouldn't have to go to this extent to get the girl.

Cee-Lo in Dirty Dancing
...because nobody puts Baby in a corner.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
