[Video] Fans Cover Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know”

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Gotye[/lastfm] is getting a lot of attention with his song “Somebody That I Used To Know” featuring [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kimbra[/lastfm]. Ever since it was added to the playlist here at KROQ, I get calls daily wanting to know who and what this awesome song is and they always end up requesting it!

Browsing through the inter webs I found tons and tons of covers of this song. Some were great, some were creative but others well, not so much. I put together a list of some of the ones that sounded good for your listening and visual pleasure.

In case you have no idea what song I am talking about, check out the official video for Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know.”

Now here are some of the covers I found online. Enjoy!

This cover is done by YouTube user Michael Schulte. Check out those harmonies!

Here is a cover by an Australian band [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eskimo Joe[/lastfm]. They couldn’t find a woman for Kimbras’ verse so they got the next best thing.

No idea who these dudes are, but La Boutique Fantastique did a pretty cool instrumental version!

Yahoorsor does a solo cover of the song.

These guys do this cover on 1 guitar. What!? This is for sure my favorite cover I have seen. I would also recommended checking out the rest of Walk Off The Earth‘s stuff, they sound great!

Now that you have heard “Somebody That I Used To Know” 1-1,000 times (it’s addicting!), you can check out the rest of Gotye’s album Making Mirrors  available on iTunes.
