Gotye Overdose!

I admit it. I’ve been just a “tad” addicted to Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” ever since I posted the video in my It Ain’t Easy Being This Good post. And, if the number of Youtube “interpretations” out there are any indication, I am certainly not alone. I do wonder, however, how many Gotye “fans” have taken their “love” for the song this far?:

Apparently even Gotye himself couldn’t resist joining in on the fun:

”Reluctant as I am to add to the mountain of interpretations of Somebody That I Used To Know seemingly taking over their own area of the internet, I couldn’t resist the massive remixability that such a large, varied yet connected bundle of source material offered.

  1. I love this song too, and decided to buy it. Unfortunately, I couldn’t figure out what the original was because there were so many knock-offs. This song has been gang-raped by a hundred different artists. I ended up with some weird hip-hop mix before I found the one I wanted. Then I listened to it for three days straight, and now I can’t stand the song.

    Did you know I have a Kashmir collection? Yes, I have about 10 versions of that song. Mainly because it’s my favorite song ever. Oh, it’s a tough choice between Hotel California and Kashmir, but there’s only one Hotel California. Speaking of which, I haven’t heard that for a while. Greatest guitar solo ever (at least for me). I’m in the mood for some Eagles anyway. I should bust them out. Thanks for reminding me.


  2. I think Zach Braff put it best when he tweeted “I wish Gotye’s girlfriend hadn’t broken up with him, because I’m really getting sick of that song.”

    Oh, and you missed one. My favorite version of it so far.

      Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
      And I don’t even need your love
      But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough”
