okay, i liked the first song and i liked the glee cover (i'm in love with darren criss and matt bomer, so it's natural for me to feel prejudiced towards anything they sing) and i quite like eyes wide open, more than the first one even.

okay, he's not good live. i might be cured. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLmrqW1jElo

I don't get the Peter Gabriel thing at all. Peter Gabriel is a great songwriter with a great voice. Is it because this guy does the same yell/sing thing?

That's it, yes.

I did hear a radio dj call him "Goat-yay", which I liked better because it sounds like some kind of child-like enthusiasm for goats. (And goats are awesome, obviously).

It's probably better for you that you didn't!


(Also, that wasn't meant as a passive-aggressive jab or anything, the "rough" thing was just funny to me).

Now that I am caught up on current day music, I admit to liking this song. But this cover of it is sooooo much better!

The first time I heard the song I didn't get the hype, but then I listened again and it really grew on me. I can't help but sing along now.

Also, that video made me laugh so hard. I don't hate myself for singing along! It's satisfying. I think those guys would make fun friends.

Pomplamoose have mashed Gotye into Call Me Maybe. I dunno... I kind of like this, in that YouTube-covers-I-can't-stop-playing kind of way. Video is of no real consequence.

Oh, I love this! And I hate "Call Me Maybe" just about as profoundly as I love "Somebody That I Used to Know".

Wow, it sounds like if Glee were produced by people who don't hate the very concept of music.

The first bit sounds exactly like my dad's reaction. Then I was told to watch the longest ever Peter Gabriel Youtube video to prove it. I haven't felt the same about Gotye ever since that happened.

i call this version goatsye (i totally got the goatse connection the first time i read his name. but i never took french, so i never even thought of the other possible pronunciation.)

i also agree with the peter gabriel/sting connection because of the soft fuzzy features of all of their voices. (more PG than sting, but i digress.)

(when i first heard the song, i walked away within the first half minute or so, because it wasn't interesting. i didn't like his whispering. but it makes sense now that i've listened to the whole thing.) i could take it or leave it.

Yep, I'm pretty obsessed with their cover of Single Ladies with its sublime piano part. Over 9 million views for the video — I guess I'm in good company!
