Gotye – Somebody That I Used To Know

posted in Pop |

Der Sänger Gotye, der ein belgische und australische Abstammung hat, ist bisher nur wenig in den Charts in Erscheinung getreten. Eigentlich heisst Gotye mit richtigem Namen auch Wouter De Backer, Spitzname "Wally". Mit seinem ersten Album "Boardface" hatte er im Jahr 2003 noch keinen Erfolg. Erst "Like Drawing Blood" hatte im Jahr 2006 den Weg in die australischen Charts gefunden. Bei uns ist er erst seit 2011 bekannt. Die Single Somebody That I Used To Know schaffte es auf den 1. Platz der deutschen Charts und steht nun im Januar 2012 immer noch ganz vorne. Auch das Album "Making Mirrors" ist bei uns auf Platz 6 der Album Charts und in Australien sogar auf der 1. Der Stil von Gotye erinnert irgendwie an Empire of the Sun, die ja auch schon recht erfolgreich in den Charts vertreten waren.

Hier die Lyrics zu Somebody That I Used To Know:

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end
Always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I'll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

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

But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know
