Walk off the Earth – Somebody That I Used to Know

It’s not a secret that the Belgian-Australian musician Gotye wrote “Somebody That I Used to Know” inspired by his own experiences with relationships. But six months later, five other people covered, sang, and played the same song, which figuratively illustrates that we all have these particular experiences with relationships.
These five are Walk off the Earth – a Canadian indie band. The way they played this cover is more than impressive: ten hands on a single guitar. Beautiful.
