Gotye have the best selling single of 2012!


What do you think the best selling song of 2012 was?

Nope, it’s not Little Things by One Direction. We were pretty shocked too.

The best selling song of 2012 in the UK is Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye!

In fairness, it was an absolute tune and we played it loads on Fun Kids.

Check out our favourite cover of the song where the band all share 1 guitar!
