somebody that i used to know...

ever hear a song and then listen to it over and over and over?  i'm horrible at that, i hear a song i LOVE and then listening to it on repeat.  most of the time it's a song i randomly hear before it's big on the radio and then by the time it's played on the radio it's old news in my book.  this time though, i have a different dilemma...i discovered a song i am obsessed with, through the ellen show, and i can't get enough of it. i recently heard it on the radio BUUUUUTTTT it sounds like a totally different song on the radio and i just found out why, walk off the earth remade the original song by gyote.  i'm not a fan of the original version but i could listen to the acoustic version by walk off the earth all day and sometimes, i do ;)

here is the acoustic version by walk off the earth i fell in love with and still love...

if you have heard both, what is your opinion?   anyone love this song as much as i do?

how did walk off the earth figure out they could all play the guitar at the same time?  did they only have one guitar to share ;)    i've watched other videos of theirs and they are so creative and fun!! i'd go watch them perform if they came to minneapolis!

hope everyone had a great weekend!!

The one on the radio is the real, original version by Gotye. This is just a cover of it, and it's amazing :) I definitely love the cover more. If you haven't seen the parody of it, it's hilarious. YouTube "somebody that I used to know parody" and it's the first result; the youtube channel is "barelypolitical".
I'm off to go listen again :P
