Best & Worst Songs of 2012

  • Best & Worst Songs of 2012
WORST: Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know." OK, we'll admit: Gotye's viral hit was pretty catchy. In fact, we almost (repeat: almost) named it one of the Best Songs of 2012. However, when we really thought about it... "Somebody That I Used to Know" is just annoying. Not only did it get stuck in your head for days on end, but it's poor grammar, people! If Gotye really cared about making good music, he'd know the correct title should be "Somebody Who I Used to Know."

    I wasn't big on this song, but I wouldn't call it one of the year's worst. To call it one of the year's worst because of a grammatical error is ridiculous. You're music critics, not English teachers. Seriously.

    If you put this into worst songs, then Taylor Swift should be there too.

    Honestly Gotye had a perfect title for his song because the lyric that repeats in the song is "now you're just somebody that I used to know" he just didn't add "now you're just." To it because it was too long. It's not a bad song it just got overly played everywhere and made into a remix that sounded horrible.

    Are you kidding me. This was seriously the worst song of 2012. I can think of way worse songs then this...incuding Taylor Swifts lame song, we are never ever getting back together.
