Finally! As much as I love Fun., Gotye is so much better imo. Also "We Are Young" pretty much got overplayed.

Making Mirrors is such a wonderful album :celebrate:

One good rock song to another. I'm all right with this.

Song is so sick.

Does anyone think that the girl looks and sounds like Katy Perry?

Completely happy about this. Knew it was going to be a hit when I heard it last summer and Gotye and Kimbra are so incredibly talented. Good for them.

It's unbelievable how huge this song has got, i remember when i first heard it last summer as i was discovering Kimbra. Congrats to Fun as well though

Thank god. I can't stand We Are Young.

To be honest, I didn't think the guy sounded too bad. But whoever the chick was sounded like she was singing drunk-off-her-ass karaoke. Good god.

I think she did pretty well. I like how he did the verses but not really in the chorus. Sounded off, but to each their own.

That girl is fucking awful.

Really happy for Gotye, Kimbra, and Fun.'s success. They deserve it.

I still don't like that song, but I'm ok with it being the one to defeat them

First time since 2000, so 12 years. Very cool for "rock" music

Both songs are irritatingly overplayed, but they're still better than most of the crap on the radio, so uh, good for both of them.
