Australian singer-songwriter Wouter de Backer AKA Gotye tells the story behind his hit song Somebody That I Used To Know. "It is a mixture of various reflections on relationships and experiences from over the years. There's an element of fiction in it as well.

In response to that I started the very low, kind of reflective melancholic verse lyric."
