My guitar teacher taught me to always make the last note a good one and ads are even worse, sorry about that,
It does take a catchy tune to make others make a cover of it, that Adele one is a beauty hillhater,
weird Al Yankevich comes to mind

yes, ..weird Al blazed a trail for these "parody" artists, ..and you have to remember that when he did it , there was no Youtube, so he had to cut a recording, have it produced, promoted, and distributed on "hardcopy" ! :o
These days, any funny artist with a camera and internet access can video and upload their interpretation in a few mins. :cry:

Was listening to NPR last night, an interview with the original artist (Gotye). He said he enjoyed it, too.
