Sunday Downloads....uh, on Tuesday

I've been threatening to start sharing my music tastes with you but haven't followed through.  My bestest bud Jessica Love does a Tuesday Tunes on her blog and I love it!  Have discovered some great new music because she shared.  (See sharing can be good....just not boyfriends....unless you're twins, then that could be fun.)

So now I introduce the ever so creative, totally catchy title "Sunday Downloads". (Yeah, neither catchy or creative, sue me.)  I was gonna call it Music Mondays but then they'd have to come up with a new word for lame.  And since Tuesday Tunes was already taken, I decided to go with Sunday Downloads because....wait for it...that's when I usually download my music.  (You totally didn't see that coming did you?)

Anyway, on to the download.

Seeing as I can't come up with an original idea myself, I decided not to break pattern this blog and post the same awesome song Jessica Love did two Tuesday Tunes ago.  I swear, in the future I will not plagiarized Jessica's Tuesday Tunes every week but I might plagiarize the occasional awesomeness.

I love the odd artisticness of the video.  The sympathy we have for him after the breakup...until we hear her side.  My favorite scenes is when she comes off the wall and then when she is in his face and he flinches from her words.  Pretty awesome in my book.  Thank you Jessica for sharing.

Gotye - "Somebody That I Used To Know"



Somebody That I Used To Know - 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 remember

You 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 that it was over

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 
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

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 
And 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...

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 
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

I used to know 
That I used to know

Somebody...
