“Somebody that I Used to Know”

3 Feb

Gotye is an Australian singer songwriter that has hit it big in the US with his hit “Somebody that I Used to Know.” This song should be up there with Adele’s “Someone Like You.” The original is amazing and caught me by surprise when I was listening to it on the radio. The song is such a heart breaker and is a highly melodic song with a reggae beat blended with xylophones and an unexpected female voice about 3/4 into the song. The last part of the song has AMAZING harmony. However, I also like Ingrid Michelson’s version only because the arrangement reminds of early Julieta Venegas.
