Arguably one of the most reinterpreted, covered or mashed up songs in recent years, Gotye’s global hit “Somebody That I Used To Know” deserves even more special treatment. Case in point, the artist himself decided to handpick the most original renditions of the song and create a unique melange of different sounds, influences and whatnot. Or to put it in Gotye’s own words:

“Reluctant as I am to add to the mountain of interpretations of Somebody That I Used To Know seemingly taking over their own area of the internet, I couldn’t resist the massive remixability that such a large, varied yet connected bundle of source material offered.

“Thank you to everyone who has responded to Somebody That I Used To Know via YouTube. It’s truly amazing!

“All audio and video in Somebodies is from the YouTube user videos featured, each of them a cover or parody of Somebody That I Used To Know. No extra sounds were added to the mix, but I used some EQ, filtering, pitch-shifting and time-stretching to make the music.

”
