Music: Somebody That I Used To Know -- Gotye feat. Kimbra

Happy Sunday!
I hope you're all having a wonderful day! :)

I've been meaning to do this post for like a month now, but I keep forgetting, haha!

I've heard about Somebody That I Used To Know pretty much everywhere and I always wondered why everyone was talking about it... and then I listened to it, and it got stuck in my head. ;)



It's a really good song, I like it!

And I liked it even more after watching Darren Criss and Matt Bomer's version on Glee:



Same song, whole different meaning! :)
(And how handsome is Matt Bomer???)

I also really liked Elise Testone and Phillip Phillips' version on American Idol:


Quick side note: I am a Phillip Phillips fan! I'm happy he won Idol. :)

Do you like this song?

LOL. now i actually really love it! i think my fave out of all of these is the Glee one. Darren Criss has such a perfect voice.

  19. The so-called "water drops" sound of this song caught my ears on radio. I love it love it love it as soon as I heard it and was recommending on my facebook. My hubby had to spoil it by singing Ba Ba Black Sheep at certain parts. I didn't know Glee had this. I'm playing it as I'm typing this.

  20. I like the sound of this song, and also that the female voice end up on top at the end. Glad to see that the video reflects that, too.
