I guess it's a surefire sign that you're old when you like songs played on the radio. In my defense I heard this one on our new 'alternative' station so maybe I can maintain some shred of dignity.
This one snuck up on me. It has a very 80s vibe, and the guy's voice is oddly familiar, but he's not actually someone I heard before. The first time I heard it, I liked it enough not to change the station but wasn't sure I LIKED it. By the second time I was hooked. I finally bought it yesterday on Amazon MP3.
I'm not crazy about the video, but it's the easiest way to share the song. I listened to some of the other tracks by Gotye, and they're ok (definitely an 80s vibe) but I don't LOVE any of the others like this one. I love the Peter Gabriel/Sting sound to his voice.
You may have also seen this version performed by a Canadian band Walk Off the Earth, using just their voices and *one guitar* for the whole thing. It's really fun to watch. I like the original best, though.
What do you think? Like it? Meh?
