Last week, my friend Amy posted the video clip below on her Facebook page and it was one of those songs that after it was done, I knew: I have a new favorite song and possibly album for the season. Gotye (pronounced Go-tee-ay), you complete me.
Maybe it's his thin, pasty, sparsely furred frame, or his unusually large mouth, or even the fact that when he starts to belt it out he's vaguely reminiscent of Sting, but I cannot get this song out of my head. I wake up and it's there. Plus, guest singer Kimbra is one hotsie totsie who can sing. That, and it's visually cool clip. And if you need any other reason, he's technically Australian. Enjoy.
The album is available on iTunes. Good stuff.
