One of the hoped benefits of doing this show was putting more emphasis on listening to songs I wouldn't otherwise have given that focus. I have yet to feel that time wasn't worth it. Hope you enjoyed our first theme episode and feel the heat from the Summer Songs show.
Did you know that Gotye is Belgian-Australian and not a goat-man/yogurt hybrid like I'd originally surmised. These epilogue posts really are helpful.
If you'd like to learn more about this song, check out a whole bevy of song facts from an eponymous website or just good ol' Wikipedia. You can also learn more about the album as a whole with this capsule review from Rolling Stone or the slightly longer reviews from AllMusic and Pitchfork.
Did you also know this song was featured on the TV show "Glee"? Of course not. No one watched that show after its first season.
And, just for funzies, I've linked some audio bloopers from this week's episode. Please, feel free to laugh along with us for a moment.
