Gotye has been making some inflammatory statements in the press lately. After that whole nonsense where he criticized the Glee cover of "Somebody That I Used to Know," he now admitted that he is sick of the song. Hey man, don't look a gift horse in the mouth. The song is HUGE. Some artists wait a lifetime for one of their QUALITY songs to hit and never experience it, so...
The Aussie rocker told NME that "Sometimes I feel like I'm a bit sick of it. My inbox, on any given day, has at least five covers or parodies or remixes of it and there's only so many times you can listen to the one song."
Even so, he still likes the song and isn't fatigued by it, at least in the life realm. He said, "I like the fact that people are still discovering it and I don't feel like it's a noose around my neck. But at the same time, I do wonder how many times you can listen to the same piece of music. I can't think of any song that's ever been picked up like this and I do feel like saying to people sometimes 'Come on guys, there are other songs out there.'"
Are you a fan of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know?"
