Better "Somebody That I Used to Know"

Both are really good, but only one can win.





I vote for Elliott Smith.

Re: Better "Somebody That I Used to Know"

Not a fan of either. Musically, Goyte's is more interesting, but the production takes away from the intimate subject matter. Elliott Smith's delivery is better, so him.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: Better "Somebody That I Used to Know"

Gotye is amazing but that song is sooooooo over played in Australia now. Used to love it though.

I actually prefer kimbra's album vows to making mirrors.

Re: Better "Somebody That I Used to Know"

Probably nobody is giving Elliot Smith a chance and listen to the song to start with, especially with Aussies invading the thread.

I really like the difference between the nonchalant delivery on the verses and the "explosion" on the chorus. Reflects his confusion and lack of insight.

Kimbra/kindra or whoever is pretty much useless though. I think the song would have done a lot better just with him, or maybe as a gay reply to Elliot.

Re: Better "Somebody That I Used to Know"

I am a huge fan of Elliot Smith, R.I.P. Listen to all of the mans work, it makes my heart bleed and jump for joy at the same time.
