Gotye

  • ‘Somebody That I Used To Know,’ in Hebrew

    We’re all talking about Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know,” and rightly so: The song is awesome. The crazy YouTube sensation has had over 175 million views and if you enter the song into a YouTube search, you’ll wind up with countless amazing covers. (“Glee” has already covered the song in a recent episode, so you know it’s a hit).
    Roi Lavi and the Good Guys have taken covering the song to a whole new level. Not only have they translated the song into Hebrew (which sounds possibly more awesome than the English version), but they’ve covered a cover — Walk Off the Earth’s version of the song, where six people play one instrument. With a new Middle Eastern vibe, the Hebrew version features an oud and even a high-pitched guy wearing a kippah.
