So you've heard this song by now right? Seen the subtly compelling video?



What about this very groovy cover version?



And Goyte's new video?
Took 9 months to make.

  2. I always find myself singing the chorus rather loudly when it comes on in the car (just can't help it!). Awesome new video.

    Love the herbie links. I miss Antoinette. Herb Mother looks amazing. I'll be spending a lot of time reading her posts. :)

    FYI - I don't think the link for the Moon Time book is working (at least not for me.).


    Enjoy the day!!

  5. I love Gotye. I love how each song of his is different yet is still him. His videos are equally impressive. Right now I am loving Thanks for Your Time and Smoke and Mirrors (oh the drums). Yay for a new personal blog!

  10. just plain awesome! I heard this song on radio a couple times a few months ago... loved it, & never found out what it was. This is a great post, brilliant videos & now I have something new to download ;-)

    [ ps...was able to navigate to the Moon Time link by removing the 'blogger.com/' ]

  11. There are so many covers of Gotye's 'Somebody that I used to Know'! I saw him live last year when he visited my side of Australia, it was fantastic :)

  15. I've never heard of them but I especially love the first song and video. The latest video looks similar in style to Michel Gondry films. He directed Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind and the science of sleep and loads of amazing music videos with bjork, beck and the white stripes. I love dream like crazy videos, thanks for sharing! x

  16. I haven't seen Gotye's new video. Pretty amazing. Very Gondry indeed, I agree with Little Dotty Bird. Now I'm off to check out your new blog!

  17. Yes i know both videos from Somebody i used to know. Both are great, and so is the new video!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I really like the cover version of Somebody I Used to Know -- how in the world did they think of doing that? That said, the official video is a favorite and I've had the song on repeat during my car rides recently. Something about it just really resonated with me, particularly believing things had been my fault when that's simply not true. That and it has such a fun beat.

    hope your week has been lovely so far!

  20. my friend shared gotye with me this year. i just saw a short documentary on what inspires him to make his music + the process he goes through. what an amazing + unique artist!

    now i'm off to check out what you've been up to~ including a new blog i hear! :)

  21. This song makes me want to dance and sing very very loud every time i hear it - in all its versions.
    I'm off to dance......

  22. It's really quite hard to come up with an original idea that's also incredibly simple - one guitar and five musicians (with such beautiful cohesion). Yes, this song is pretty breathtaking, "Told myself that you were right for me
    but felt so lonely in your company".
