Gotye: Somebody That I Used to Know (Performed by CDK Company, The Netherlands). Catchy song, inventive choreography.

After the final show on Sunday of Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along, the closing bows and remarks. I saw the original production in 1981, which was dismaying, to say the least, and gave no hint of what was to come. As the years have gone by, it is now recognized as a great, bittersweet observation on how relationships grow, ebb, and change.

A good friend of mine has been on the lookout (for a number of years) for an SACD copy of "Sticky Fingers".  When I think of it and am in a record store, I look for him too.

Nice video.  I consider that song a masterpiece.  Gotye takes in elements of all types of different music to make it.  He didn't want to become a celebrity and walked away.  He doesn't even take royalties on the song.  He gives it to Kimbra.  I've often listened to his albums, and he is a brilliant musician.  Here is a video analyzing the song and demonstrating all the layers to it:

I assume you know about the plagiarism issue of My Sweet Lord!

Of course. And Harrison made a joke about it in "This Song" on the 33 and a third album.

I didn't know about "This Song." I will check it out. It's unfortunate that My Sweet Lord is a near-total copy of He's So Fine. George should have changed some melodies.
