New Music: How Gotye Won UrbanChiX Over

Six months before “Somebody That I Used to Know” became immensely popular, I heard it for the first time, and I liked it. Then came the hype and it was played everywhere, everyday, several times a day. Geesh, there is something to be said about less being more. This led to subsequent dislike for Gotye, which wasn’t his fault, it was the fault of Billboard Top 100 and that damn Ryan Seacrest. Then one day I overheard a song playing on a sound system and I ran upstairs to ask the woman at the info desk what song it was and she said it was Gotye. I asked if she was sure, because it seemed a far cry from the song that had been assaulting my senses for the past few months. The song was “Thanks For Your Time” from his 2006 album Like Drawing Blood. So the song isn’t exactly new, but still. Listen to it. It’s worth it. If you found yourself starting to dislike Gotye as I had, you need to go back and listen to his earlier work. It’s great. Enjoy!
