Tunage Tuesday: Gotye
I decided to try and do a weekly post about music, which is one of my greatest influences. Hopefully it
About a week ago I heard this song, "Somebody that I Used to Know" by Gotye, and I absolutely fell in love with it. It's catchy, sad, the lyrics are so...! and did I say catchy? Anyhow, if you haven't heard it I suggest you take a second to listen to the song. The video, I have to say is a bit creepy, but I do like the use of abstract art to convey emotion. Where as the closeup on singer Wouter "Wally" De Backer was what made it a little on the creepy side. It didn't help that when featuring artist, Kimbra, turned around (I didn't realize she was there!) I was reminded of an owl.
Anyhow, despite the video, I can't stop listening to this song. I don't think I've been obsessed about a song like this since "Mr. Brightside", by the Killers. After hearing it 2 times I knew I had to get the CD to see if there were similar tracks. So far I'm really diggin' it & there are so many instruments being played & the vocals are great. Very different yet... familiar.
