The TV Show “Glee” recently did a version of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know”. It was performed by Darren Criss (Blaine) and by guest star Matt Bomer.
Well, Gotye heard the Glee version of his song. And he HATED it.
He said that the Glee version of the song made it sound “dinky and wrong”.
Gotye also said, “They did such a faithful arrangement of the instrumentals, but the vocals were pop ‘Glee’ style.… ultra-dry, sounded pretty tuned, and the rock has no real sense.…. like it’s playing to you from a cardboard box.”
In other words, Glee needs to give it up.
Tell us what YOU think about the Glee version. Here is the original version of the song:
And here is Glee’s version:
This is an easy one: Gotye wins hands down.
