From Malaysia to Madrid we have been continually reminded of Australia, in a rather weird way.
Wherever we have travelled the world wide hit song, ‘Somebody That I Used To Know,’ by the Belgian-Australian singer-songwriter Gotye, has been constantly played in taxis, bars, restaurants and shopping malls. Even during the odd sleepless night, I have heard it repeat endlessly in my head.
It’s not surprising, considering that Gotye has just won a hat-trick of Grammys, two for this song and one for the album ‘Making Mirrors’.
Even on our flight home, Gotye was again being played on the Emirates inflight entertainment system.
It’s been our musical companion for nearly 12 months and whenever I hear it in the future, it will remind me of our trip.
