You Can Get Addicted To A Certain Kind of Sadness

No, not an emo post. I'm sure most of you know by now where the title of this entry came from.

I've never heard of Gotye until I saw Walk Off The Earth do a cover of "Somebody That I Used To Know". The song's popularity sky rocketed in just a matter of weeks, and before you know it, everyone's got a copy of the song and suddenly belting out "SAMBADEH!" every chance they get. I can't blame them, though - the song is quite catchy, and the lyrics go through the heart especially to those who can relate. Gotye became an overnight mainstream sensation. I wish I can write a song like that. LOL.

Yesterday, I saw a post saying that the singer committed suicide. I had a mini heart attack and started asking if it was true. Thank goodness it wasn't, and it was confirmed by Gotye's official Twitter account. Later I found out that the link was CNN's version of Wikipedia, meaning anyone can submit news and a whole lot of other stuff.

Moral of the story: Don't believe everything you read on the Internet.

Because of this incident, I have the song on repeat again. I also stumbled upon this amazing guitar cover by Mike Dawes. Completely mesmerized, I am. @_@
