The Popdust Files: covers, gotye, somebody that i used to know, videos

Gotye and Kimbra’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” is a bona fide global hit, as anyone who spends time looking at Walk Off The Earth, whose whipsaw-guitar cover made the blog and TV rounds and arguably helped the original chart higher.

Where are we going with all this? We’re going here: this is an Israeli cover of that Walk Off The Earth cover by Roi Lavi and the Good Guys, sung in Hebrew and played on bouzouki. OK, mostly on bouzouki; there’s also a guy with a keyboard. And he plays an important role! Several. First, percussion; second, the last few seconds. We won’t spoil them.
