Why Is Gotye Upset With Glee?
Glee has covered a lot of big time artists, and most the of artists are actually pretty happy about it. And just the other week, Glee did a cover of the Gotye song, “Somebody I Used To Know.” While it seemed like a good idea to have them do the cover song, Gotye is a bit upset. He says that they did not do the song justice, and is actually upset with how they covered his song. Check out their version and compare it to the original:
Gotye not only just didn’t like it, he HATED Glee’s version of his tune:
“They did such a faithful arrangement of the instrumentals but the vocals were that pop ‘Glee’ style . . . ultra-dry, sounded pretty tuned and the rock has no real sense . . . like it’s playing to you from a cardboard box.”
I’m not sure exactly why Gotye is upset with the cast of Glee, because it seems like they did a pretty good job at cover “Somebody I Used To Know.” You be the judge though. Here is Glee’s version and Gotye’s original:
