It started with a perceived typo.
“Have you heard of gotye?”
“Just listen to somebody that I used to know,” my sister typed via G-mail chat. Oh, it’s an artist. My sister has never led me astray when it comes to music, so I made a mental note to do some exploring.
It took me a few days to get to it, but I finally did, and all I’ve been listening to recently is this song. I haven’t put a song on repeat since I owned a CD player and listened to N*Sync’s “Pop” over and over again, until I knew all the lyrics by heart.
In any sense, give it a listen. It’s a beautiful song, beautifully written, and beautifully performed, with a wonderful build-up to the climactic duet at the end. It’s completely infectious and addicting.
Also, the music video is all kinds of awesome, telling a story better in a relatively static frame than some artists can in ten-plus minutes (ahem, Lady Gaga).
Are there any new songs you can’t get out of your head lately? What have you been listening to?
