Friday Favorites #6!

Happy Friday!!

Before I get to my Friday Favorite today, I need thank my bloggy friend Jessica Nelson for appearing on my blog this past Monday--THANK YOU--and I need to announce the winner of her new release LOVE ON THE RANGE!



The winner is: marybelle!

CONGRATS!! Email me at Jennifer AT jennifershirk DOT com


And now for my Friday Favorite...

It's a song.

Yeppers. A song.

I first heard it on American Idol, sung by Phillip and Elise as a duet. When I listened to it, I thought, "Huh, kind of a cool song." Well, after that I kept hearing it while I was on vacation EVERYWHERE, and now, well, I LOVE IT.
It tells a good story.

The video is kinda cool too. Kinda.
Check it out!

Gotye "Somebody that I used to Know"


Do you know the song?

Have a great weekend!

I heard it on Glee, with Blain singing it. It is a cool song.

Congrats to Marybelle!

And I've heard that song -- it is a good one. :)

My sister actually shared this video with me. It's one if those songs that just kinda sticks in your subconscious I think.

Bethanne said...

That video is... interesting. :D But I do like the song. The lyrics caught me...even before the naked bodies. ;) LOL

Whoa. I like the song. Hadn't heard it before. The video was bit unusual, but I couldn't turn it off. LOL. Thanks for sharing, Jen!

Maria Zannini said...

Well that video was...different. I do like stop motion photography. Interesting concept for the song--which I liked very much.

Five musicians, one guitar.
Very cool.

Yeah Marybelle!

Must admit, my middle child is freaked out by this song. She always asks me to change it when it comes on the radio. For some reason the sound reminded me of Phil Collins. Such an 80s girl I am.

I've never heard it before - I think I could easily come to love the song - but not the video - don't like that at all - gives me the shivers.

Linda Kage said...

Congrats to Marybelle!!!

I LOVE that song. Never watched the video before. It's definitely artistic!

Connie Keller said...

Jessica R. Patch said...

I remember when I anticipated Friday nights and stayed up late just to watch "music videos"! LOL

Now, I rarely pay attention to them!

Have a great weekend!

Jill Kemerer said...

I really like Elise this year. And I like Skylar--she's so spunky and fun!

Congrats to Jessica!!

Sherrinda said...

Yes, I've heard it once. Did AI show part of the video or something? I can't remember, but I did see some of it. Way cool.

I can't decide who I like this year on AI. :)

Susan Fields said...

There aren't many songs that my kids listen to that I like, but that's one of them!

Sandra Cox said...
