I saw “Gotye” plenty of times on Sirius radio but because I didn’t recognize it, I went to the next station. It wasn’t until I was streaming a Dublin radio station one night that I came in during the part where Kimbra sings and it goes into the chorus. My first impression was, “Okay…I can relate to this song.” My second reaction was, “This guy kinda sounds like Sting. Especially in the chorus.” I think Sting & The Police could redo this song with no problem, don’t you?
Somebody That I Used To Know was released as a single in the US and Ireland during January of 2012. However, it was released in July of 2011 in Australia and New Zealand. The single was super successful all over the world taking the #1 spot in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Ireland, United States, and United Kingdom among several others. Another relationship song that people all over the world could relate to.
Above is the official video. It’s very…unique?
