Some music that somebody sent to me

Props to my good, music-loving friend Tom for sending me this one ...

He sent these music videos for me to check out earlier this week, and I had no idea what I was about to view. I'd never heard the song. In fact, the title, "Somebody That I Used To Know" makes me think of the song of the same name by Elliott Smith.

I didn't have a clue about Gotye, or Kimbra, for that matter. I didn't know this video existed. But judging by its nearly 40 million views, it's big.

So I clicked play and began watching it. At first, the video creeped me out. Then, Gotye began wailing the chorus line and my ears perked up. Around the three-minute mark, I caught myself smiling. And my mind was blown. ... The imagery is amazing.

Putting a cherry on top of this cake, Tom supplemented his mailing with this cover of the song by the one and only Ingrid. She puts her own stamp on the song. Add some slick editing. Mind blown again.
