Yeasayer remixes Gotye’s “Eyes Wide Open”. 

Just when you think you’ve heard every possible iteration of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know”, he creates a brand new version that’s a mashup of covers and parodies found on YouTube. This is “Somebodies - A YouTube Orchestra”. So meta!

Gotye says: “Reluctant as I am to add to the mountain of interpretations of Somebody That I Used To Know seemingly taking over their own area of the internet, I couldn’t resist the massive remixability that such a large, varied yet connected bundle of source material offered.

”

My favourite track from Gotye’s “Making Mirrors” gets a cool animated video from Peter Lowey - this is “Save Me”.

sick of this song yet? me neither. Bright Light Bright Light remixes Gotye: “Somebody That I Used To Know (Bright Light Bright Light Remix That I Used To Know)”.

One of my favourite songs from “Making Mirrors” gets an ingenious little video from Oh Yeah Wow. Here’s Gotye’s “Easy Way Out”.

…and just because I’m all about Gotye today: Walk Off The Earth recreate their viral 5 player guitar cover of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” live on Ellen.

A short film from Gotye describing how “Making Mirrors” came to be.

Gotye’s album “Making Mirrors” was by far my favourite one from last year and it seems like North America is finally catching on to his awesomeness. Here he is performing “Somebody That I Used to Know” with Kimbra on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Awesome! The Big Pink give a icy-cool clubby spin to Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know”.

A dark and beautiful animated video for Gotye’s “Don’t Worry, We’ll Be Watching You”.

*****************************
And you know it’s the wrong way round
Still you can’t say no
Ever playing upon your mind
And you won’t say why

(So shut up!)
Unless you’re ready to leave it
(Or make up your mind)
But you need it so much
(Do you really believe in it?)
Yes I do
From time to time

In the end
You dig yourself the hole you’re in
When you don’t know what you want
You just repeat yourself again
In the end
You just repeat yourself again
When you don’t know who you are
You dig yourself the hole you’re in

(Don’t worry)
It’s only in your mind
(Don’t worry)
But I do
From time to time

You just repeat yourself again
(Don’t worry)
You just repeat yourself again
(Don’t worry)
You just repeat yourself again again again again again

Still it’s the wrong way round
And you won’t say no
Ever playing upon your mind
But you won’t say why

(So shut up!)
Unless you’re ready to leave it
(Or make up your mind)
But you need it so much
(Do you really believe in it?)
Yes I do, I do, this time

In the end
You dig yourself the hole you’re in
When you don’t know what you want
You just repeat yourself again
In the end
You just repeat yourself again
When you don’t know who you are
You dig yourself the hole you’re in
