Gotye feat. Kimbra - Somebody That I Used To Know
“You said that you could let it go and I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know.”
Many of you have probably already listened to the latest album from Australian artist Gotye, and those who are friends with me on Facebook saw some of the links I posted with this artist. If you haven’t, I encourage you to take a trip through each song. I think Gotye is really at his best when he’s creating new and unique sounds on track like in this one. To me, just like most of the reviews would say, this song is about believing in the idea or illusion of the ‘perfect person’; the person that ‘you used to know’. After discovering that you had in fact put them on a pedastal, and that they never were that perfect person, you are still unable to let them go because your illusions clash with reality and it is a never ending struggle between accepting who they are, and who you thought they were. This song is really has a concept that everyone can relate to that’s why its worth listening to. His other songs like I Feel Better and In Your Light are also my pick which also makes you feel they’re paying homage to 80’s guitar pop. Overall, the entire album is great and it spins effortlessly back and forth between various and obvious influences.
