someboy that i used to know

i love a good break up song. not only do they help you get through your own personal muck but when they're filled with a "take that" perspective, they're especially satisfying.

enter gotye, my new favorite artist who's quite reminiscent of sting, if i (and other you tube commenters) do say so myself

catchy, well written, offers two sides...i dig it.

since we're here, i'll follow up with two more break up songs that offer two versions of the truth.

enter the melancholy offering by stars, "your ex lover is dead"

strings? check. super emo? check. fuck you/you're dead to me? CHECK.

and finally, "be careful"... one of the best modern r&b tit for tats by r.kelly and his artist sparkle (without the closet saga, of course)

(i still laugh at "mrs. busybody")

yes, indeed, good old-fashioned shit talkin'. there's a ton i'm not mentioning but just thought i'd play, guess today's theme :)
