Watch Your Back, Yankovic!

This is by far the best political song parody I’ve seen in quite some time.  The song (and video) was made by a group called JustNew Productions (?) based on Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know.  It’s a pretty well written parody and I think it’s accurate about how a lot–a LOT–of people feel about Barack Obama.

Probably why the video is going viral.

Well, maybe that and the creative body painting.

(BTW, does Weird Al Yankovic still do parodies?  I don’t know.  Anyhow…)

Money out of politics.

Free. Thought.

Gotye’s All-Time Great Rebound Song

I just happened to hear this song called Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye and it was stuck in my head all day.

Now this is the more waaaay more popular cover by Walk off the Earth.  I don’t know how they even came up with idea of  performing it this way.

I usually give the lion’s share of the credit to creators, but Walk off the Earth has the better version.  Sorry, Gotye.  😦

Anyway, this is Gotye’s original version.  Nothing to hang his head about.  I do think he owes Peter Gabriel and Sting a check each for the style swipe.  Still, it’s a very cool song.
