Album: The Odd Couple (2008)

  • Lyrics
  • Vocalist Cee-Lo (from The Guardian newspaper March 22, 2008) "Blind Mary is anyone who can love unconditionally and that's a rare quality." in Rolling Stone, April 17, 2008, he added: "It represents a certain kind of person and a certain kind of love. This particular girl can't see, so material and shallow things just aren't of any concern to her. It's about how she really feels about me, without judging me. That unconditional love teaches me how to love her despite her disability. Of course, we're all disabled in one way or another."

  • Drew from Buffalo, NyThis song is one of the best on the album, behind Suprise in my opinion. It is noticeable what the song is about.
