Today’s “Featured Artist and Song of the Day” showcases Dublin, Ireland’s own, Lisa Hannigan, with her cover of the Gotye song, “Somebody That I Used To Know,” which she recently did on Giel’s breakfast show on 3FM, when she was in Holland. This displays her amazing vocal range, and shows how she can rock the uke.
Hannigan’s recent album, Passenger, was released in September of 2011, through ATO Records, and is an incredible album. Songs from that album, such as “Knots,” will be featured soon in future articles of The Troubadour’s Road.
She has tour dates this Spring throughout Europe. The US awaits her next stop across the pond.
These words find their place in the song, “Somebody That I Used To Know (Gotye Cover),”
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 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 it feels so rough
No 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
