Gotye thinks ‘Glee’ botched his song
(EW.com) — Things we know Gotye doesn’t like: card boxes, dinkiness, and “Glee’s” chronicle of his #1 singular “Somebody That we Used to Know.”
The Belgian-born Australian artist criticized Darren Criss and Matt Bomer’s cover of a exile hit, revelation a Sunday Herald Sun that a uncover “made it sound dinky and wrong.”
“They did such a true arrangement of a instrumentals,” a thespian admitted. “But a vocals were that cocktail ‘Glee style,’ ultra-dry, sounded flattering tuned.”
“And a stone has no genuine sense,” he continued. “Like it’s personification to we from a card box.”
Perhaps not coincidentally, a Gotye strain reached a tip of Billboard’s Hot 100 in a fifteenth week on a charts — that was a week directly following a “Glee” episode. (Then again, he did seem as a low-pitched guest on “Saturday Night Live” that week as well).
The Glee version, meanwhile, debuted during 26 on a Billboard Hot 100 and during 10 on a Digital Songs chart.
