"This is why everyone knows "Somebody That I Used to Know," but nobody gives a crap about any of Gotye's other songs. It's why there's no need for him to play an entire set. It would make more sense for Gotye to hook up with fun. ("We Are Young") and Carly Rae Jepsen ("Call Me Maybe"), hire a single band, and run through their singles in 25 minutes,"
I wouldn't blame it on "trending" so much as the following:
(a) Nobody knows any other Gotye songs.
(b) I'm going to take a wild guess that Gotye's other songs do not sound like THAT one.
(c) Half the audience did not have interest in listening to anything that didn't sound like THAT one.
