Gotye's "Somebodies": A cover of covers

If you’ve been paying attention to Youtube at all for the past few months, you know that everybody and their brother/sister/cat/etc. has made an arrangement or parody of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know”. Apparently Gotye has been paying more attention than the rest of us, and has released an arrangement of many of these covers as “Somebodies: A Youtube Orchestra”. It’s much more interesting than catchy, but it’s definitely worth a listen.

That was really cool.

Was there something about the videos of groups of people playing a single guitar? I see one guy even made a joke about it.

The one with the group playing the guitar was probably the most popular of the covers on YouTube (Walk Off The Earth), including a direct parody.

Glad to see that the Pentatonix version was profiled. It was always my favorite.
