Somebody that I used to Know

I agree with the Peter Gabriel sound. Beautiful, clear vocials, with a Talking Heads style lyrics. The thing that has caught my attention is the simple style of the whole musical arrangement yet a very raw and powerful song. RMJ

Great song. Instant hit.
Those that don't understand why this is so popular obviously have never had there heart broken in love.

Okay but #1?

I don't understand why/how this song is number one?
