Congratulations to the strangely-named Gotye for releasing the first UK no. 1 single to exactly mimic the scansion of "Baa Baa Black Sheep". The only exculpatory circumstance may be that, being Belgian, he may be unaware of the aforementioned nursery rhyme. Even so, whether he's aware of the steal or not, this sing-songy drivel was played ad nauseam over a tannoy system while taking the slopes on a recent skiing holiday, to the extent that it completely obliterated the theme tune to Ski Sunday that was playing in my head, and which is my preferred music of choice when on the piste.
