The "girl" part just sounded like it was used as an insult. So why did you say "20-year-old college girl" and not just "20-year-old college student"?

I'm honestly not picking with you (I'm probably one of the most civil posters on this site)--but do you see how that can be misinterpreted? And in my opinion a 20-year-old dudes lyrical prowess is just as shitty as a 20-year-old girls. Idk, maybe I'm just over-thinking today...
Well put. No need to call out a particular sex when critiquing.

No, I don't really see how it could be misinterpreted like that. Saying that it sounds like it was from a whiny college girl is nothing like saying "This sounds like it was written by a female songwriter who sucks and is inferior to her male counterpart." I wasn't talking about songwriting ability being dictated by gender. At all.

it didn't seem like he was upset, surprised or bitter about it, he gave his honest opinion on the version when asked

That's the way it came off to me too but he'll never admit it because he's dumb.

Well said.

never really cared for the song until the glee version lol. oops?
yeah, glee uses too much autotune for singers that don't need it, but i've grown to accept that, and i'm a sucker for Darren (and Matt in this case). curious to know how Darren feels, since he's actually been a Gotye fan for a while haha.
also, it's always funny to see people who treat glee as if it was the worst thing ever created or something. do you feel cool now?

Everything about this post is perfect.

No, I mean the original. The song is hardly anything exceptional, is rather trite, and has the lyrical prowess of a college girl in her early 20s.

Using the word trite doesn't make you smart. You are wrong.

It's not. It's just really cool to hate Glee.

It stopped being cool to hate Glee two years ago when people cared about the show.

21 Jump Street reference?

You betcha.
