gotye – somebody that i used to know

 [music monday]

I found this music video on Pinterest about a month ago and have been obsessed with it ever since. Everything about this song/video is just PERFECT, but there are three things that just get me: how he goes for it during the chorus while the rest of the song is pretty subdued, the non-corny stop motion, and the way that he crisply pronounces each word. Love it.

Gotye is the stage name of Wouter “Wally” De Backer, a Belgian-Australian thirty-one year old, who, from what I can tell, is a pretty popular dude in Australia and the surrounding areas. Am I just really out of the pop charts loop or can I confidently say that pretty much no one in the U.S. has heard of him? At the time of this post, the official Somebody That I Used to Know video on YouTube has almost 16 million views. Pretty impressive! For more awesomeness check out the song and video of Eyes Wide Open as well.
