Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" has been one of the most inescapable songs of 2012, covered endlessly on YouTube - and he's used that to his advantage, creating something truly special.

The Australian artist, real name Wally de Backer, has taken some of the best covers of the song and remixed them into one tune that he's called "Somebodies".

And it really works, too - the "YouTube Orchestra", as he's dubbed it, fits voices and sounds from around the world seamlessly into each other as they are all connected by the common thread of the song.

Gotye wrote, "Reluctant as I am to add to the mountain of interpretations of Somebody That I Used To Know seemingly taking over their own area of the internet, I couldn't resist the massive remixability that such a large, varied yet connected bundle of source material offered.

"
