Sorry Glee fans - if you thought the cover of Gotye's hit single, "Somebody I Used to Know" that was featured on a recent episode was any good, it seems like Gotye himself disagrees. In a recent interview with The Sunday Mail, the singer commented that the cover, sung by series regular Darren Criss and guest star Matt Bomer, was "ultra-dry" and sounded like it was "playing to you from a cardboard box." Ouch.
"They did such a faithful arrangement of the instrumentals, but the vocals were that pop 'Glee' style," he said. "It made it sound dinky and wrong."
The song itself is currently dominating the Billboard 100 charts, partly in thanks to the "dinky and wrong" cover, as well as the singer's appearance on Saturday Night Live.
What do you think of the Glee cover?
