Cool five person solo guitar Gotye cover

This is all over Facebook already. But I’m on the farm in Dalby, so can be forgiven for being behind the times.

Also interesting, and related, is the content of the deluxe version of Gotye’s making mirrors, which describes the process of putting together some of his songs.

Good coverage: Sometimes cover songs are better than the original

I’m a sucker for badly sung covers of popular songs. I remember discovering Grum Lee’s now defunct website of purposefully bad acoustic covers sung with a French accent and thinking it was terrific. The site is dead – but Grum lives on, immortalised in YouTube…

Here he is singing a Dandy Warhols number.

The reason I post this is because I just watched this video Dave Miers posted today of a kid on a ukelele murdering the lyrics to that annoying Jason Mraz song.
