Earlier this year I made the prediction that Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ would be the song of the year until ‘Call Me Maybe’ rolled along from Carly Rae Jepsen.

So let’s take a closer look at some facts about both songs:

  • Both tracks have sold more than 7 million copies worldwide and both have spent eight weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 so far…
  • Both songs have been parodied extensively all over the world from the Olympics to Saturday Night Live and all over the web!
  • Both songs are extremely catchy and you can’t help sing along.
  • Both tunes are also guilty of causing severe ear worms – to the point that you wake up singing the darn song…

Having laid out the facts I am now undecided if Gotye will be the song of the year now that Carly Rae is clearly catching up.

So I have decided to turn it to you the listeners…

Which song, despite having it heard a million times do you believe will be the song of the year?
