Break up song!

It’s hard breaking up, all those questions unanswered!

I just love this song.  It’s really one you would belt out when having broken up with someone, going through that emotional upheaval.  Why, who was he, what was that, I hate him, I love him, glad he’s gone, blah blah!  Plus I love the video…I just love singing this, it’s emotional all the same even if you aren’t breaking up with someone LOL..go on give it a try…you know you want to 🙂

And no, I am not crying in to my hanky after a break up, just love this song, did I say that already?

 

 

“Somebody That I Used To Know”
(feat. Kimbra)

[Gotye:]
Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still rememberYou can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end, always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad it was overBut you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
No you didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to knowNow you’re just somebody that I used to know
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know[Kimbra:]
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I’d done
But I don’t wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know[Gotye:]
But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
No you didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

 

Yah did you listen and have a good old sing, or just watch?

As always, thank you lovely readers for indulging this crazy chicca!  Justine x

    As soon as I clicked on the video and it started playing my 21 year old son came in to tell me this was the weirdest video he had ever seen (I highly doubt that with the music that he listens to). I know this song but had never seen the video. Could you hear me singing?? I think I’ll listen to it again. Thanks for sharing!

    dear “odds and bods, loose sods and change encrusted with sweet crumbs and lint and old ticket stubs ound in forgotten pockets” – I trust you are keeping well and happily, sad to say I have been ignoring your blog, I have in the meantime read Caitlin Morans very funny book on HOw to be a woman, which I suspect you would enjoy, it made me giggle, it was naughty in places and I had long conversations with my sig other in a restaurant about the correct styling for womens hair wherhairver they may be, and what this means for feminism, or was it what feminism means for hair as explained by Ms Moran. It was funny, I laughed a lot, the book kept me company on a trip, if you were around I’d read you bits loud, wed have a drink and giggle. At least that what I think might happend, but who knows maybe were both not funny in the flesh – HAPPX wednesday

    Ah,I thought I commented on this one,but I think my comment didn’t go through.
    What I said is that I used to think Gotye’s songs were commercial,but I was mistaken.He’s a great experimental artist.You should listen to ‘Baby’, ‘Wonder Why You Want Her’ and ‘Heart’s a Mess’ as well! 😉
