How Can You Not Be Obsessed?Karen Hart

The song and music video for ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ by Gotye have been on constant rotation for months now. Since there has been no vaccine created to wear me off of this addiction – it feels safe to say this is a healthy obsession, one worth passing on to you. I promise that there won’t be any negative symptoms or side effects as a result of pressing play. However, you should be warned that Gotye’s smooth, rhythmic and crisp song arrangement might lore you into a wistful state of seduction.

  1. i applaud you for sharing this. it has been my obsession since hearing it in yoga class last month.

    the song? slightly haunting, yet deceptively catchy.
    the song and video together? kills it

  2. I’m right there with you, ladies. And is it just me, or does he look/sound a bit like Sting?

  3. I’m so in love with this song. The artistic video makes me melt… I love how at the end, Kimbra’s paint comes off, as if she is forever going to leave him in his world of imagination and self-indulgence.

    so brilliant!

  4. THANK YOU for introducing this to me! I love this song and upon going on a youtube binge of Kimbra I’m in love with her as well!!

  5. Im so glad someone else is addicted to this song like crack. It’s such an addictive jam.

  6. Beautiful.

  7. dying in all the best ways.

  8. Thank you so much for this introduction!

  9. Yes, Kimbra is amazing too! The video is so sensational, but their voices together kind of make you melt!

  10. I’ve been obsessed with this tune for two months already Goyte has great stuff and what about Kimbra she’s phoneminal.

  11. Love this song, it led me to Kimbra a few months ago and you must listen to her “Cameo Lover” She reminds me a bit of Regina Spektor (who was featured on this site yesterday) A slightly off female singer who’s got the right moves, voice, lyrics. Love it all!

    • totes! and she’s goregous. a mix between Zoeey and and KAty Perry

  12. this is awesome! my boyfriend sent me this song a month ago and I’ve played it non stop ever since. I like the rest of his stuff too

  13. I know I’m late to jump on the Gotye train, but holy smoke! – that just blew my mind. Thanks so much for posting this! I had just assumed that Gotye was more half-arsed, sleepy, indie crap. Shame on me!

  14. Don’t forget about Kimbra! She’s from New Zealand and she’s amazing.

  15. there’s kind of a peter gabriel sound in this song, I like it :)
