Gotye vs. Walk Off The Earth: Somebody That I Used To Know

Gotye's "Someone That I Used To Know" is one of the best and most original hit singles to emerge for quite a while, a pop song unlike anything you've ever heard. Already it has been covered far and wide and the most popular version besides Gotye and duet partner Kimbra's original is undoubtedly Canadian YouTube phenomenon Walk Off The Earth's version. It shows five people playing one acoustic guitar, and the simple, stripped-down arrangement is also incredibly effective, whittling the song down to its core, showing what a masterpiece it actually is. Some even think it's better than the original, but I think that's way off as good as it still is. What's your opinion? Here are both of them, so please enjoy!
