Hookin Up with HoH #97

Hey my friends! I hope you have had a great week. I’m currently listening to Somebody That I Use To Know by Gotye. Man, I love this song. I first heard it on American Idol a few weeks ago and now I’m hooked.

American Idol (Elyse & Phillip):

Gotye (original):

Have you heard this song? Do you love it too? On a side note, I hate that Elyse is always in the bottom three! She is my favorite singer this year.

Okay, okay. I’ll get back to Home Decor and crafting!

  20. Thanks so much for hosting, Allison. 🙂 Megan

  21. OMG, I LOVE that song right now! Sang it on the way to work today! And Elyse is from where I live, Charleston, SC…she was actually supposed to sing at one of my best friends’ weddings a couple years ago but realized she double-booked herself! She said she would do any event for her for free to make up for it (we keep thinking it would be a good idea to pull out that raincheck right about now) 🙂

  22. I love Elyse too! Just saw it for the first time this season last night. She did great last night! Thanks for the video! Didn’t know what I was missing! Thanks for hosting…hope you can check out our Periwinkle Cape Cod (#139)



  23. Thank you so much for hosting the party! 🙂
    Vanessa @ {nifty thrifty things}

  24. Thanks Allison for the fun! I love that song too, but I love the version that the band “Walk Off The Earth” does the best….its a very interesting version of this song and sounds awesome. You can hear it here on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9NF2edxy-M
    Hope you have a great week! Heather 🙂

  25. Thanks for hosting Allison! I host my own party on Thursday as well. You should pass on by and check it out.

    I linked up #50 in the Recipes and #166 in the Crafts/DIY.

    Hope you have a wonderful day!

  26. Allison, I just wanted to let you know that I have added a permalink on my blog to your weekly party in lieu of adding it to each post as it was taking a lot of time….I didn’t know of an easier way…..It is under WHERE I PARTY at my blog as I know I will be coming here every week. I didn’t want you to go to my blog and wonder why I didn’t link back to you. 🙂 Hugs!

  27. Thank you so much for hosting!! Enjoy the rest of the week and your weekend! Finally nice enough here in Alberta to get out and start doing yard work- very exciting for me!

  28. Thank you for hosting, what a great party every week! Thank for your sweet comment on our cottage dining room too. Little Bit

  29. OH YEAH!! I’m SO addicted to this song….both my husband and I are!!!! 😀 Did you see the “painting/drawing” video (with Goyte)? Or the cover with Walk off the Earth (5 people playing one guitar at one time)? I didn’t get the Goyte video until my husband explained it me… pretty neat:P Thanks for sharing the videos… and of course for hosting!

  30. What a fun surprise to find my Route 66 sign featured! I’m a new blogger and this is a fun new experience. Thank you, Allison, for the opportunity to share like this. Deb
    Ya – Go Elyse.

  31. Elise and Phillip are my faves. As for Gotye, I’ve loved that song for months. Did you see the Glee version with Darren Criss and Matt Bomer? They sang it in a different context but did a fantastic job.

  32. I do like that song. My daughter introduced it to me a long time ago, before it was mainstream, after a teacher at her high school pulled her out of another class just to share it with her knowing she’d appreciate it! Needless to say, he is one of her favorite teachers. LOL. Have a great day.

  33. So, that song is starting to grow on me…when I used to hear it on the radio, I’d change the station, because something about it was just too weird for me. But now, I’ll listen to the whole thing, and find myself humming it in my head 🙂

  34. Thank you so much for hosting!

  35. Thanks for hosting the party! Bythewayjenngray.blogspot.com

  36. This is my first time linking up here, thanks for the party. I’m off now to browse through the projects!

  37. LOVE that song. I had not heard the Americal Idol version but I am a huge fan of the original. Our local radio station even does a radio version that includes a few more dance tones to it on Saturday night. It is fun but nothing beats the original.

    Thanks for hosting!

  38. Allison, you NEED to check out Walk off the Earths’ version http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9NF2edxy-M It’s an incredible song isn’t it!! Thanks for hosting…as always 😉

  39. Thanks for hosting. My husband and I love American Idol, that was a great show and a great song. I vote every week, only I vote for more than one and sometimes all of them. I guess that doesn’t really help pick a winner. It’s been a great season that’s for sure.


  40. Well, I feel like a big dummy. I posted my craft under recipes/food. Sorry! I’m new to this linky party stuff. (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!) 🙂

  41. Thanks for hosting another fabulous linky party — I always gather so many great ideas!

  42. Totally love that song too. My favorite is the Walk off the Earth version on Youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9NF2edxy-M
    My six year old will sigh and say “Why are you listening to that again?” Thanks for hosting!

  43. I’m a new follower and linking up for the first time (ceramic tile coasters)! Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend!!

  44. Now, I am singing that song all dern night!
    Thank you for being the hostess with the mostest!

  45. Thank You SO much for featuring my kitchen! I am flattered that it was one of your favorite projects, out of all the fabulous entries that were linked up!

  46. Hi Allison! Have you heard the acapella group Pentatonix (winners of The Sing Off) sing Somebody That I Used to Know? It’s rad!!

    Oh, and thanks for the party 🙂

    <3 Alyssa

  47. I first heard that song sung by Pentatonix and fell in love with it. It is so awesome!
