Weekend: Boom! – Grow a Goatee with Gotye

by Breakstone on April 6, 2012

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaah buuuuuddddddddyyyyyy. As many of you know, The Hot Six is both a sincere and ironic pleasure for me. The staff at The Hot Six is universally up-to-speed on the latest international political affairs, is engaged in civic activities, helps charitable organizations through voluteerism, and donates money to various causes. At the same time, we have a not-so-guilty pleasure in dance music, music culture, nightlife, and general savoir vivre.

I find it amusing at times when I realize I am blogging about music after having sent sensitive political email exchanges with my former law school classmates, or after spending a day in court working on some complex business litigation. Such is life. It’s not complex. People have a multitude of loves and passions. As Mr. Rogers would say, deep and simple is far more essential than shallow and complex. To me, it’s simple: passions run deep. It’s important to express them.

B-t-dubs, Pauly D has a new reality show. Dare I say, I miss the rest of the Jersey Shore cast? Also, have you seen Shahs of Sunset, Persian fans of The Hot Six? If so, let us know what YOU think.

On we go.

I had this posting in mind for quite some time, and then I was watching an episode of The Voice and saw singing hopeful, Lindsey Pavao, rock a rendition of this track right hurrr.

Sidebar: Christina, how do you expect us to take you seriously when you are wearing this?

Prior to that, I had gone for a run, and was listening to Tiesto’s Club Life podcast, and heard Tiesto’s remix of the track, and boom, I knew I had to post this posting.

Gotye is a Belgium-born, Australian singer-songwriter, who shot to fame (in my eyes) with this track. The original is cool; some would say better than all of the remixes. But, I disagree! Why? Because remixes are dope. And usually more fun to fistpump to.

So, I present to you, Fans of The Hot Six, four remixes of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” for your consideration. You tell us which one is your fave. Tweet us @TheHotSix. Post to our Facebook page. Or leave a comment below. We want to hear from you! C’mon, baby, I neeeeeeeeed this.

Check out the jams, and let us know what you think!
