A Few Reasons Why "I heart" Gotye
-He has been making music and releasing it independently for well over a decade and though it took a long time for him to experience any commercial success he never gave up.
-His hit single is not a poppy piece of cheese so therefore he never sold out and stayed true to himself.
-even though it seems like a slow (downer type of song). The BPM is fast enough to mix in a great house record, right during the climatic hook, so I dont have to sell out and play the lame techno remix :/
-"You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness" So Sad but so true. A lot of people forget that they can choose to be happy but they just prefer the wackness.
-The song Bronte on Making Mirrors is about the passing of his friend's dog :/ and in my opinion it's one of the best songs on the album. Much like "somebody i use....." it is very specific but universally understood.
