《熟悉的陌生人》:高堤耶幻鏡分手曲 | Somebody That I Used To Know

Gotye - Somebody That I Used to Know


【楚爾秀音樂欣賞】

《Somebody That I Used to Know》(翻譯:熟悉的陌生人),是由澳大利亞及比利時雙重國籍歌手高堤耶(藝名:Gotye)創作及演唱的歌曲,並由紐西蘭歌手Kimbra參與伴唱。歌曲於2011年7月5日由作為高堤耶第3張錄音室專輯《幻鏡》(Making Mirrors)的第2支單曲發行,而環球音樂在美國和愛爾蘭發行單曲。《熟悉的陌生人》是一首中速的獨立流行民謠,該曲並獲得2013年度最佳錄音和年度最佳流行組合或團體兩座葛萊美獎項。

《熟悉的陌生人》是高堤耶商業成績最成功的歌曲,其在美國、英國、澳大利亞等23個地區的排行榜奪冠,並成為2012年美國告示牌年度流行歌曲冠軍,列名告示牌各年代總榜單第29名歌曲。歌曲MV於2011年7月30日首映,高堤耶和Kimbra在音樂錄像帶中,在白色背景下上半身裸露著,當他們在唱歌時,塗鴉漸漸地覆蓋住他們的皮膚,相當具有特色的音樂錄像帶。

高堤耶於1980年出生於比利時布魯日,兩歲時隨家庭移居到澳大利亞。剛抵達澳大利亞時住在雪梨,隨後定居在維多利亞州。高堤耶在上小學時,父母將他的名字英語化為Walter。在2013年2月舉行的第55屆葛萊美獎,高堤耶成為大贏家,《Somebody That I Used to Know》為他們贏得年度最佳錄音獎和最佳流行組合或團體獎,《Making Mirrors》獲得最佳另類音樂專輯獎。Gotye形容自己「不像一個音樂家,而更像一個修補匠」。

《Somebody That I Used to Know》衍生諸多的網友改編版本,多屬於諷刺型的搞怪版本,像是《熟悉的星際大戰》(The Star Wars That I Used To Know)、《熟悉的歐巴馬》(Obama That I Used To Know)、《熟悉的中學功課》(Some Study That I Used to Know) 。

《Somebody That I Used to Know》歌詞

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end
Always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I'll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
But I don't wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know

But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

(Somebody)
I used to know
(Somebody)
Somebody that I used to know
(Somebody)
I used to know
(Somebody)
Now you're just somebody that I used to know
I used to know
That I used to know
I used to know
Somebody
