What If You Mashed Up Gotye and Carly Rae Jepson and Turned It All Backwards?

God bless the clever people in Pomplamoose.  The chorus is made up of the chord changes from “Call Me Maybe” but the words and melody are from “Somebody That I Used to Know.”  The verses feature “Somebody’s” chords and Carly’s lyrics.  

Like I said, clever.  Thanks to Lyndsay for pointing the way.
