A super legit cover, if anyone is interested:

Only cover worth posting of this song. Been obsessed with this for months now. Actually how I came to even know about the original and Gotye's album, which, by the way, is fantastic.

Yeah it's fucking phenomenal. IMO their videos are better than anything OK GO has done in the past few years, but they're still relatively unknown.

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.

Solution: don't listen to the radio.

Proud day to be an Aussie. If only I was part Belgian...
Awesome song and let me assure everyone, it's been out since mid-last year in Oz and has pretty much worn out its welcome but it has a lot better replay value than We Are Young which I'm already just about sick of.

Yeah. Finally, it was about time people stopped playing Fun. I love those guys and I do so hate overplayed songs...

With that said, I heard that Gotye song on the radio a couple times and I hated it. It was awful except the chorus was damn good, but the instruments, the verses, and the girl were meh.

I'm just waiting patiently for this to drop on the radio already tbh

I had a feeling Gotye's single was going to reach #1. It is a great song and the album rules

still shocked it took the USA 10months, but better late than never :)
