    Great sample. I really love they modified the chord progression of the original.

    Can't be a direct sample. Not exactly the same chords and texture.

    ''That Luiz Bonfa sample directly prompted the first line of lyrics,'' Gotye told American music industry bible Billboard last week. ''The back and forth left me thinking about these different break-ups and different relationships over the years, and the lyrics flowed from there.''

    Although the snippet used in the song is minimal, Gotye's Melbourne-based lawyer David Vodicka confirmed the Bonfa estate received a split of royalties rather than a straight fee for use. He did not reveal how the royalties were split, but the Australasian Performing Right Association lists de Backer and Bonfa as joint-writers of the song.

    I think Les and Larry elgart St James Infirmary could make a dirty remix to this.Check it out.Major chopping would be needed but if you heard it its begging to be freaked.

    very nicely spotted. @walter perhaps he just started playing around with that sample and the song developed from there
