Gotye f/ Kimbra - Somebody That I Used To Know

Month: January

This song would be #1 if they didn’t play it all the damn time. This song was everywhere for me this past year, and it actually all started late in 2011. Justin and I were driving to Lansing, and he said, “Hey, have you heard this song before?” He played it, and at first I was just meh about it. But then we listened to it again and again and it of course grew on me. This song was the song Nikki and I listened to and we both agreed it can be used for our past relationships. This song was the song I sang while I was intoxicated, puking in the bathroom of a shitty diner on my 21st birthday. This song was sung over countless number of drives to this place and that, and just like that one video, no matter how many times we criticize how its over played, once it comes on, you can’t help singing along.

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing that it was always something that I’d done
But I don’t want to live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know¬†
