Gotye Doesn't Seem to Like "Glee's" Cover

Posted by - 02:03 PM on 04/23/12
Gotye's not too happy with the Glee version of his hit song, "Somebody That I Used to Know." The singer commented to EW that, "They did such a faithful arrangement of the instrumentals, but the vocals were that pop Glee style ó ultra-dry, sounded pretty tuned. And the rock has no real sense, Like itís playing to you from a cardboard box."

What did he expect? I don't hear him complaining about how fat it's making his wallet.

That's always the problem I've had with the show. I know some of the actors have singing talent, but their voices are either void of any emotion because of the overuse of Autotune or overproduction. They never make any effort to make it sound like it's actually being sung live, it always sounds like a studio production. Even the acapella Whitney covers are terrible.

You have to know what you're probably going to get when you license out your song to them. Glad to see he's honest though. He also recently called out a radio station during an interview for playing an unlicensed remix of "Somebody That I Used To Know." haha

You mean the Glee version of the song, right? Because Gotye's song is actually quite amazing. As is the album. And also Gotye himself.

I liked it. Even if I think it doesn't work well between two brothers singing.

No, I mean the original. The song is hardly anything exceptional, is rather trite, and has the lyrical prowess of a college girl in her early 20s.
