Somebody That I Used to Know

Gara-gara Kimbra jadi tahu yang namanya Gotye (spell it Gore-ti-yeah) and their collaboration was suppaCOOL!! Gag heran sih kalau akhirnya Somebody that I Used to Know ini jadi lagu nomor 1 di Australia, Selandia Baru, Belgia, dan Belanda. Single ini juga sudah mendapatkan 6x Platinum di Australia.

Kalau menurut hemat saya, halah, maksudnya kalau menurut pemikiran saya yang sederhana, lagu-lagu dari penyanyi macam Kimbra dan Gotye ini amat menyegarkan telinga, otak, dan hati yang sudah lelah dijejali musik ala boy/girl band dan permak auto-tune di mana-mana.

So this is their collaboration, best collaboration of the year (my version of course :D). Videonya so artsy, ubercool.

Musiknya keren. Temanya juga bukan yang aneh-aneh, keseharian aja. Soal cinta sih, bukan yang muluk-muluk, tanpa hiperbola, ataupun menye-menye. Cerita soal pasangan yang putus trus salah satu ada yang gag pengen berkomunikasi. Lil bit reminded me of myself hahaa.. But it’s so natural you know? Choice’s choice, decision’s decision.

Back to Gotye and Kimbra, this is their collaboration’s best lines  (still, in my version) and Kimbra who sang it:

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I’d done
And I don’t wanna 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

JUARA!!

NB: Btw, this day is my best friend’s wedding day. Happy wedding day @deenaholic! Semoga selalu bahagia dan sejahtera. *smooch*
